Vintage Girl Birthday Card

Aug 17, 2011

Hi all!  It’s Dar­cy from Pink Per­sim­mon again.  This week my sis­ter, Judi, cre­at­ed this set of cards using our new Hel­lo Vin­tage Girl stamp set and a sneak peek of some ATC pat­terns that we are releas­ing at the end of the month. (wink…you’re the first to see them!)

Judi had so much fun mak­ing these envelopes look just like a vin­tage pat­tern.  She even cre­at­ed a tem­plate to share with you today.  Down­load the enve­lope tem­plate at our web­site here.  It is sized to be sim­i­lar to an A2 card, so it fits a stan­dard 4.25“x5.5″ card inside.

Our Hel­lo Vin­tage Girl set is real­ly fun to use with paper piec­ing.  Stamp the out­line of the girl on to the enve­lope or tag first, then stamp her onto anoth­er piece of white or ivory card­stock.  Judi then used our new ATC (Artist Trad­ing Card) pat­terns to cre­ate the fab­ric pat­terns, stamp­ing right on top of the dress image.  A bit of cut­ting, then piece the two togeth­er and you have an adorable dress in just the right col­or.

A lit­tle bit of col­or­ing with Cop­ics for her hair, skin and shoes and she is ready for a day out on the town (or on the phone!).  Judi did rec­om­mend that you do all your stamp­ing and adhere your dress image before actu­al­ly fold­ing the enve­lope into it’s fin­ished shape.  Much eas­i­er to stamp on a flat sur­face.

Judi stamped the Hap­py Birth­day sen­ti­ment on top of the card insert and stamped the ruler image along the back of the enve­lope too.

Don’t for­get that you can down­load the enve­lope tem­plate here.
