13 Vintage Birthday
It's been a long time since I've worked with vintage images, yet they are probably my favorite images to use on cards. I'm going to get back into them. You can do a search for free vintage images and come up with lots of sources for them. I get them free online, pay for some online and have several CDs of them. I'll be posting a few soon for Halloween. Vintage Halloween images make the best cards and tags.
I made a coordinating box for this card. The crinkled seam binding is from Kristen. I find this easy to use, particularly since I'm all thumbs when it comes to tying ribbon. This ribbon is so forgiving.
The really cool scrolly pieces are Cuttlebug Cut and Emboss Ornamental Iron. This is a set of two pieces - a die for cutting various shapes, including the scroll above and an embossing folder to coordinate with the pattern. I hadn't used this before and know I will be going to it more now that I have. The sentiment inside is a large Birthday Greetings sticker from SRM Stickers.
Patterned paper is K&Company. The gold tone piece is something I probably picked up on eBay.
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
ETA: Have had a few requests asking where this particular image came from and I honestly didn't think I'd be able to come up with it. I have a habit of downloading things in a hurry, with no organization to it. I surprised myself and found this one in a folder called Clearly Vintage Blogspot! Here is the direct link to this image, but be sure to look around at all the other great images.
