Vintage Notecard Swap
Lenna's latest creative swap is all about vintage note cards. This is my second swap with this wonderfully creative group and I've had so much fun watching the cards arrive on Lenna's blog. Even though we're all working with the same theme everyone's take on "vintage" is different. I really enjoy seeing the different styles used by each artist...I get so inspired! Be sure to stop by the Creative Swaps blog, say hello to Lenna and have a look at some of the beautiful cards that have come in. Here are the cards I created. The swap was for three cards with envelopes but I chose to make an extra one for Lenna as a small thank you for hosting the swap. A year or so ago I took a workshop offered by Mary of Green Paper called Artist Class. The images I've chosen for my cards were used in one of the Artist class projects. I thought these four women would be perfect as a set of vintage note cards so I decided to use them again here. I've layered the images on some vintage book text and a piece of old flocked wallpaper, added a little vintage lace and a heart charm and there you have it...a set of vintage note cards!
