Vintage Birthday Card

Back to creating in January! With both my sister and mother having birthdays this month, I've taken out my supplies and made them some cards...

Here's the one I did for my sister. It started out with a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Stash - I thought the vintage dress pattern was perfect. Then because I have a few old tissue paper patterns, I used some to make a tissue flower, with three pearls in the center.

The sheer ribbon and cardstock are from my own stash. A Martha Stewart oak leaf punch was used and I found an old charm "sisters" to add to the ribbon.

I just printed out the sentiments. Inside it reads: "You never go out of style"

I hope she gets a kick out of it: that dress / hat combo is right out of our childhood days!


  1. Your cards are outstanding and I'm loving the use of the brush as a holder! As for the fashion style being popular when you were a child....I thought you were way younger than me?! The picture reminds me of the 60s when I was a child! lol

  2. Ha! Nope, I think I am older than you - I was born in 1960! Thank you JoJo!

  3. That's a lovely card. Have you got the pattern? I have some and feel tempted to make the dresses. There's a brilliant pattern to download from the V&A museum right now for a sweet 1953 summer dress. Warning though, it'll take pages and pages to print the thing out. :)

  4. I love vintage style paperie in any almost any fashion but Victorian style is SO pretty! Your card is beautiful.
