This card that I made today is for my Nan, who will be 85 next week. I know that she likes this traditional / vintage style, which is why it is a bit different from my usual style. I am entering it into the Sketch and Stash challenge #28 (which is to use their suggested layout to make any card).
For the challenge the newest part of my stash is the lace and pearls. The lace was a bit of an impulse buy last week, I didn't have any plans for it - I just liked it, so I bought a few metres. Fortunately it came in perfect for this card. The pearls were from my local craft shop. The neglected part of my stash is the papers (from a Kay & Co 8x8 pad) and the rubber stamp. I've had this stamp about 10 years but haven't used it for a long, long time. It is by Inkadinkado.
I used nestabilities to cut the circles and a bronze ink pad to stamp the image and added a bronze border around the inner circle. I coloured the ladies face with craft chalks to add a soft hint of colour and punched some tiny flowers out of the scrap paper to add to the hat.
Finally, to finish off I have added some matching paper to the inside and a simple matted square to write on to.
Thanks for looking!
