vintage baby

A third card today! Another entry for the vintage plus blue challenge over at 365 Cards. Also using the simple yet versatile sketch from Cupcake Crafts Challenges.

This is a much cleaner & simpler design. Fit for a new baby boy. 
~ Ü ~

The blocks are made out of embossed card and corrugated card. The corrugated card was originally kraft, so I painted it white and edged it with stormy sky DI. The other block panels are also distressed and inked.

The image is framed with a pleated doiley. Adds a softer touch, I think. It is simply embellished with stitching, liquid pearls and pins of my own making.

supplies: image from The Graphics Fairy, cuttlebug embossing folders, spellbinders die, Viva decor paper pen, Viva Decor gloss gel, acrylic paint, distress inks
