Vintage looking greeting card

This is a card I created using one of Magpie Mine's Collage Sheets from her etsy shop. 
Here is the tutorial. 
Items needed:
1 card and envelope
vintage ink stamp pad
1 pretty piece of cardstock
1 image from Magpie Mines Shop
fancy edged scissors
letter stamps
4 paper flowers
something to embellish the center of the flower
Step 1 Cut and glue the cardstock to fit the center of the card
Step 2 Cut and glue the image from Magpie Mines shop with fancy edged scissors, onto the cardstock
Step 3 Glue the 2 paper flowers to the corner after antiquing them with the stamp pad
Step 4 Glue on a bauble to the center of the flowers or make a swirl with a metallic gel pen
Step 5 Antique all  the edges of the card and envelope
Step 6 Glue on small rectangle of the cardstock after cutting it with the fancy edged scissors
Step 7 Glue on the last two flowers after antiquing them
Step 8 Stamp a saying or a greeting to the side of the image
Ta-da! It's that simple. Looks sweet, huh? No I'll have to send it out to a special friend.


  1. This is such a cute card! Adding the distressing on the card and envelope is this the special touc that really sets this apart:0)

  2. Turned out beautiful Tammy!! What a great job!

  3. Tammy, this is darling! I love those scissors that made the fancy edges. Your cards and ATCs are amazing, so creative!

    Thank you so much for making it and doing the tutorial. I certainly made out, even if you didn't do a fruit piece for the challenge lol!! I will put up a post for it tomorrow and let Dotty know.

    Have a great evening!

  4. Tammy I've had a wonderful time strolling around your blog and checking out your latest projects! So wonderful!

  5. This is so pretty and charming, I just LOVE it!

  6. Tammy, this is LOVELY!

    We still have over 2 1/2 feet of snow and it's not going anywhere. Our mail didn't even get delivered on Saturday!

    Have a wonderful week!!


  7. This is a very sweet and pretty card. I'm gonna have to look for some of those fancy scissors when I am in the States this summer. When I make cards, I truly do it the scrapping way and just rip my papers into the shapes I want -- don't usually like anything straight edged, but fancy edges would certainly be nice. Have a great day!

  8. Tammy, the post for this is on my blog!
