Vintage Vogue Thank-You

This is my trade card for my demonstrator meeting last night. The flowers and foliage are from a  really pretty stamp set called Vintage Vogue.  The "vintage" look comes from the lettering which is part of the big flower image and the fact that the small flower looks "worn".  I stamped both flowers using Perfect Plum and the foliage with Always Artichoke.

The lacy image in the background is the large doily from Delicate Doilies. It was stamped in River Rock. The sentiment is from a set called Thank-you Kindly. I added one of the new Large Self-Stick Pearls to the center of the flower. 

This was an easy trade card. Let me explain.  When doing trades we make many (many, many!) of the same card. For this meeting we only had to do 10 cards. This card was so easy that I might even use this as my Regional Trade - which means I'd make 100 of them. 

In another sense this card was hard for me - hard in the sense that the main layer is only 1 level. Usually my cards have many layers to them - which you'll notice if you have browsed through very much of this blog. Anyway, its easy to add a little more dimension to this card. In this second sample I stamped the main flower on another sheet of paper and cut it out and layered it on top the flower on the card.

Oh - and if you are local, i.e. Madison/Stoughton area, we'll be doing this card at the March Stamp-a-Stack!
