I'm amazed how quickly the Vintage Friday comes round every week. This weeks vintage card is made using a combination of Canada and Portugal. I stared by cutting just the outline die in the Canadian background into a piece of tan foundation card twice so that the pattern overlaps making a square(ish) shape.
I backed the background with vellum and foam mounted this over a piece of periwinkle foundation card. I then studded the centres of all the flowers with 3mm cream stick on pearls.
Next I cut the centre panel in the die into a piece of tan and backed this in the same way before foam mounting it over the centre of the front. For the main element I cut the first three dies in the Lisbon set in periwinkle twice and backed these in periwinkle before rooting them to make a square shape from. I foam mounted this above the centre panel so it frames a square of the pattern.
I added this over a messy bow of 6mm tan and 3mm blue satin ribbon.
Finally for today I added a couple of stick pins to match and a few layers of the tan and periwinkle.
