Inspiration for Vintage Treasures
There is a special place in our hearts for those things kept in a hope chest. Other than a promise of the future, they symbolize things of value and keepsakes that bring back treasured memories. I delved there to find memories, filigree jewelry and keepsakes of old. From long-forgotten turn of the century jewelry to the edgings on an old tattered handkerchief, I love bringing the past into the present in a style that is ....well, timeless. These things -- bejeweled lockets, a sweet tiara and vintage adornments from long ago -- provided the sweet inspiration and restoration of some lovely, lovely Vintage Treasures.
The physical dies in this collection have an extra measure of flexibility and function. Most templates have an outer rim, and inlay and an inner rim that you can use for your sentiment.
I decorated my card with handmade flowers. To create flowers I used new Spellbinders S4-995 - Cinch and Go Flowers V.
The flower on my card is from Spellbinders AC-0331 - Fresh Cuts Paper Flowers and leaves from Spellbinders S4-867 - Cinch and Go Flowers III.
To create the card front I die cut the decorative Pattern die in the card base and then I die cut the same Pattern die together with Outer Rim die in patterned paper and placed on the top of my card base on 3D tape. On the picture below you can see how it looks from the inside of the card.
