Vintage – Words of Wisdom

Looking back in time challenge at Double D challenges blog spot: asked that we use their mood board as inspiration for a card. I came up with this one. Don’t think it is one of my best cards but it has grown on me since yesterday. The little book has these words inside “keep breathing as long as possible” and came from a store bought card that I received one birthday. I kept it and was going to throw it away but as you can see didn’t. Used PP from my stash and added a frame to it and then adhered to Gina K kraft card stock. Stamped the typewriter twice in distress Vintage Photo ink. Fussy cut both out and popped one on top of the other. Don’t know where the stamp came from – had it for ages and never used till now. The design still needed something so I used some small alphabet stamps from Hero Arts and created two strips – one just lettering for behind the book and the other a word for the typewriter. Didn’t like the stamping so went over it with a gold pen. One I figured out placement of the images and glued them it still needed another touch. Added the key -because the word can denote the typewriter keys – and a little bit of bling which seemed to finish the card.

  1. You are so sweet and thanks so much. How’s your own blog going. I am slowly getting mine to display the way I want but it is slow going and currently I am also helping my hubby with his photo show so I won’t be concentrating on the blog until that is finished.


    1. thanks Judy. I’m so glad you like it. I’m still not sure I do although it has grown on me since finished.


  2. Everything fits the challenge beautifully! Little bits of ephemera and nostalgia, a gem or two … as though a person was looking through their memories and left things laying as is. Nicely done! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Double D!
