Vintage 60th birthday with Everything Eleanor…

My friend was organising a surprise birthday party for one of her friends and asked me to make a special birthday card.  The brief was anything to do with wine and something classy.  I don’t have any stamps that are specifically wine related, so I decided to make the card in wine colours with a vintage style … maybe a tenuous link but that’s all I had to work with!

A little bit of inking in crumb cake, applied with a sponge dauber, helped to give the card a distressed, vintage look …

For texture and a touch of luxury, I added some crochet trim, very vanilla seam binding ribbon and a vintage brad – which completed the look.


Here’s what you need to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!:

cardstock: cherry cobbler, very vanilla; stamps: everything eleanor; ink:  basic grey, crumb cake; accessories:  labels collection framelits, typeset alphabet dies, big shot, adhesive pearls, very vanilla seam binding ribbon, crochet trim, vintage brad, stampin’ dimensionals, glue dots.

Thanks for dropping by today
