Create Card - Papier

Hey there! Today's post by me is a card using the very pretty and glitterly My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Collection Patterned Paper..I had half the mind of not cutting them up, but..a gurl's gotta do what a gurl's gotta do isn't it? *Lol*'s the card I'd like to share with ya' kit this time had lotsa vintage buttons and cards..and I used one of those vintage cards for this post today..I love that lil camera image! simply gorgeous don't ya think? ;)

Just to share a few tips with you crafty friends :
1) Gesso out words / phrases that you don't want...the Gesso effect will give a vintage feel
2) Don't be afraid to glam up a vintage card further. I stamped some text images around this piece
3) Leftovers / scraps left behind by punched out portions can be assembled to form pretty flowers (like what I have done for the flowers on this card ;))

Materials Used : Ivory Cardstock, My Mind's Eye PP, Ek Success Border Punch, Bling, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Sentiment
