More Forgotten Treasures

While looking for something else I came across some papers my daughter gave me when I first started cardmaking, they must be around 13 years old. and I am always challenging myself to use my older supplies so that is how this card started. I added this vellum image from K & co. the tag was also in the set so all I had to do is add a stamped sentiment to it.  This paper was already embossed but wasn't quite as big as my card front so that is why I used this dark brown strip of paper, I had to add a punched border to it of course :)

Simple to put together card, but I really loved the way it turned out and just in time to get it in the mail for my nephews wives birthday.

Here is another pic with a little less glare on the vellum image.

I don't know if JoAnns craft store has this exact set anymore because it is a few years old but they do sell other sets of the vellum and cardstock sets, if your interested.

Old embossed paper
Fiskars -- Eyelet border punch
K&co. - Flora and Fauna Diecut cardstock and vellum set
Gina Marie -- Birthday words
Nuvo -- Golden Sunset glitter drops

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I appreciate hearing from you,

Leslie Miller said...

Ohhhh, that paper is so beautifully embossed and the bird is gorgeous! Two of my favorite things. I have bunches of pre-embossed paper. I must be hoarding it. So many things I just don't get around to using, which is why I had to clear out my room. Saved all my papers, though. Nice work with the glitter drops, and the border looks perfect for your card!

Aww, your daughter gave you..that's sweet.
I just love this pretty card, what a lovely image (apple blossom is one of my favorite flowers) and you have done it justice with the bold choice of black and pink...bold but still feminine.
I still love my card you gave me Connie! It catches my eye all the time :)

Very pretty Connie. Love the vellum image and the textured background. It must feel nice using up some old supplies. You wouldn't be able to tell though... that it's from 13 years ago.

Stephanie said...
