Vintage Alphabet Card

These new papers (to me) by Theresa Collins were calling my name. I got one of those huge paper and embellie packs from ScrapbookSteals.com and just HAD to take them for a spin!

Especially when a paper pack has unusual colours in it, it’s great to have lots of die cuts and embellies that match the paper. I now have an ink pad from SSS that should match the next time I use it but I also like the collagey style I got here. I like having cards without sentiments so I can use them for anything I like. Great when you are in a pinch.

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.

One thought on “Vintage Alphabet Card”

  1. I really like the colour scheme in this card – and the stamp/postmark just gives it a little something extra!I agree with your sentiment regarding cards without a set message – life throws so many milestones our way that aren't traditional and yet need celebrating, so having a few 'blanks' is always a good idea.
