Vintage Card Design

Today I’m sharing an elegant vintage card design similar to the Hydrangea card that I shared this past week.  For this project I used the Floral Frame, Berries, Large Ivy, Small Flowers #3. Stacked Butterflies and French Script Background. I love the flowers and ivy cascading over the top and down the sides of the card.  I actually didn’t intend to cover so much of the Floral Frame but I think the flowers add an element of romance.

The Vintage Card Base and Frame

  • Cut a piece of cream cardstock and secure it along with the background stamp in the MISTI.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the stamp and stamp the image.  Note:  I stamped mine twice to get a really good coverage. The Antique Linen ink is perfect used on cream cardstock to create the vintage card background.
  • Trim the background layer to fit behind the 4.00″ x 5.25″ Floral Frame.
  • Cut the frame using cream cardstock, apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the background layer.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and background layer and attach it to the card base.

The Flowers, Ivy and Butterfly

  • Cut several sets of the Small Flowers using soft pink cardstock, two sets of berry branches and three sets of ivy using green cardstock.
  • Use a green marker to color in the center of each flower.
  • Place the flowers face up on the molding pad and form them with a small tipped stylus. 
  • Attach the flowers to the berry branches using glossy accents.
  • Attach ivy branches around the top and sides of the frame using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the four berry branches to the top and sides of the frame.
  • Add a few extra flowers to where the branches were attached together and attach with glossy accents.
  • Cut the butterfly using the pink cardstock, attach the pearls and attach it to the card base using a thin strip of mounting tape.

I think this vintage card design would make a perfect wedding or anniversary card.  It is so romantic looking with the cream cardstock and pale pink flowers. I like to find different ways to use my dies.  Check out my Dry Embossed Die Background card showing how I used the Floral Frame to create a decorative background for ivy and flowers.  And, you can see my simple Mini Green Wreath card showing the ivy used with small flowers to create a wreath.  Pinterest has tons of vintage cards for inspiration.  Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have a good weekend.  Stay home and stay safe and sound.

  1. This is BEAUTIFUL, Kittie! The colors, with the French Script & the Floral Frame Die Cut, DO ADD to the vintage feel of this! I think the flowers draped like this also give an Arched Trellis feel! JUST BEAUTIFUL!!! ;)<3

  2. Wow, that is just stunning, love the muted colors, the arch of flowers, neat script background, just all comes together nicely!

  3. Such a lovely card! I was wondering the same thing as Lynne about mailing and was thinking it should be sent in a box because opening this card would be like opening a present. So very pretty!

  4. Another, out of the ballpark, homerun, card. Simply elegant unless you know how much work is behind such a gorgeous card.
    Love, love, love all your work. Thank you.
