Vintage Style Card Set

Hello everyone!

As you know, I was recently selected as a Crew Member for Canvas Corp Brands and today I
I'm featuring a card set I created using their 7Gypsies Conservatory line.

I started with four kraft note cards, also from 7Gypsies and layered each with a panel of patterned paper. The paper I selected for this set is entitled Magpie and features beautiful vintage script, birdcages and marbled eggs. 

I then added a green and gold gingham ribbon and navy seam binding which gives the cards lots of texture and dimension. The paper from Conservatory line is double-sided, so I added a paper strip featuring the other side of the Magpie sheet.

Once that was done, I stamped "hello" in navy ink on an ivory square and added that to the top of each card. As a finishing touch I added gemstones and a couple of pieces of ephemera that are part of the Conservatory Tags pack.

I really enjoy creating these cards and working with the lovely 7Gpysies line of paper. For these and other cards, please visit my etsy shop Pretty Byrd Designs. I'm running a spring special -- 20% off a $10 purchase. Use code SPRING20 at checkout.

Thanks for stopping by today and come back soon!
