Vintage Card with die cuts

Hello Everyone. So pleased you could visit Jumbled Crafts and hope you enjoy what you find here today.

At Our Creative Corner the theme is a A Very Vintage Christmas with the twist of neutral colours as well and at Artful Times we are asked to use die cuts and punches.

Here is my card for both challenges. I made the background in Paint Shop Pro and then added some texture with a Cuttlebug folder The beautiful image is from here and I added another image at the base of it to soften the straight edge.

Next was some lace then some die cuts. The swirls are by Joy and the flowers a Marianne die. Sorry I didn't have any punches that would go with the card--most of mine are so old they stick or tear the card--all say Ahh.

Hope you have a lovely day

Chrissie xx

Lovely card, it has turned out really well, love the colours, too. I know what you mean about the punches, some of mine are impossible to use! Hugs, Valerie

Such an enchanting card, Chrissie!

Love all the wonderful textures you included with your gorgeous make!
I know that problem with the punches too. Sometimes it helps punching several times through aluminium foil (the one you use in the kitchen) to sharpen them (at least it works well with scissors - so it might be worth a try).

Thank you for sharing your beautiful make with us at OurCreativeCorner!

Oh wow Chrissie - this card is a gift all by itself! Just gorgeous, it reminds me of a collection I discovered in my Great Aunt's home after she passed away. You are so clever!

What a delightful card, Chrissie - and so beautifully crafted for the Our Creative Corner challenge! I love the girl, and the texture is lovely, both from the mesh ad the lace and in that embossed background. Thanks so much for playing along with us at OCC.
