People ask do I ever get bored of making cards and the answer is nooooo. Reason being because you can use so many different techniques on a card. I really love the vintage look on cards but never seem to have enough time to make them.

I found the background paper for this card on a fabulous website called The Vintage Moth you just have to check it out because it was free.

My Christmas present from Andrew is the new deep edger MS punches (only played with them at the moment). I bought these from one of my favourite websites Craft Obsessions and when they were delivered, inside the packaging was a very nice – thank you for your order tag – tied onto this were lots of pretty pieces of wool. Just had to use them and voila here is the card.

Inked the card with Rangers peeled paint then applied the paper but first ripped, distressed and made holes in it (only did it because it was free). Covered the two birds on the paper with glossy accents just to give them more depth and to enhance at the same time.

Stamped a frame onto a square piece of card – then glossy accents, distress ink and a stamped sentiment in the middle were added. The lace around the edge was inked first with Rangers dusty concord then finished with peel offs.

Cut out the bird from another free image from the same web page, inked with dusty concord and again covered with glossy accents.

The free wool was added to the edge and also scrunched some of it together to add extra embellies. Bits of fibre have been added behind the bird. Shirl
