Lovely Lace

This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge is Those Were the Days (Vintage Inspiration). I'm not exactly sure how to convey the vintage look, so I pulled together things that seemed old and rusty (bird cage), distressed and stained (doily), and a little granny-ish (flowers and crochet lace). What do you think?

Here are the DEEtails:

I started with a pretty piece of Springtime Vintage DSP and rounded the corners. I layered on a doily that was distressed with ink and a piece of Very Vanilla with more rounded corners. I stamped the SU! Elizabeth image and added a piece of Victoria crochet lace. Then I stamped the bird cage image from SU!'s Nature Walk set, cut it out and tied some Linen Thread to it. For a final touch, I added a Vintage Flower Adornment. Hope you like it!


  1. I think you mastered the vintage look with this card Nina! Love the deetails that you added!

  2. This is so soft and pretty. Love how you incorporated the doily.

    Hugs, M
