Vintage Cards with Postcard Backs

The wonderful thing about downloadable collage sheets is that there are endless possibilities. Today I’m featuring Ewe-N-Me Printables Collage Sheet - PostcardBacks. What fun these were!

I’m so fond of vintage, especially when it comes to anything paper related, so these postcard backs really caught my eye. The downloadable image comes with 6 different images, in two different sizes for a total of 12 printable images. The sizes are 1.5" x 2.5" and 2" x 3.5".

Today I’m using all six images, but in different sizes to create two vintage style cards. I downloaded and printed the images and cut out 4 larger and 2 smaller sizes.

I started with two natural colored cards, one horizontal and one vertical. I glued a panel of red textured cardstock to both and left a sizeable margin on each so the red would stand out. This red paper really pops against the natural stone color. I then adhered two strips of ribbon – a dark brown and a red gingham to each card.

These images are great because the edges have that inked look. I arranged them in a stacked, overlapping style which gives the card a collage feel. I finished the cards by adding a red, shabby chic flower and two pearl beads.

Wouldn’t this be a fun card send to a friend or family member who loves vintage?
