Vintage Card for Nana


I made this card for the boys Nana. I had to wait for the photo to arrive and as soon as I saw it I loved it. I could just picture on a vintage card. I mounted the frame onto silver mirri card that I used distress inks  bronze and antique gold to age the mirri card. I used a gorgeous backing paper from Craftwork Cards. I added some distress inks to the edges. I brought a paper back with some brads from Craete and Craft that was in the sale for £5, I used the photo corners on the photo but first I had to age them with the distress inks. I used a fabulous Love Heart that I won and I used some lush ribbons to add texture to the card, The sentiment is made using papers from Craftwork Cards and some canti in the corner to finish it off.

I would like to enter this into Emma Crafty Challenge, The theme is vintage. I do hope you like it as I haven't been very well for some time and I haven't made anything in such a long time.
Thank you for popping over

Happy Easter and God Bless

Love Lise xxxx
