Vintage Vogue Pink and Gray Lace

Good morning everyone!
I'm up and at 'em today! Much to do and needing to get to it. I took my second 50,000 IU of prescribed Vitamin D treatment yesterday and needed to adjust. I hope it makes a difference this fall. My rhematologist thinks it will so I'm very hopeful. It's always nice when they have a lab test to check things.

Here's my card for today .... a little Vintage action, thank you!

I think I'm getting the hang of this vintage thing. Not totally, but kind of. I wanted to do a vintage card that didn't use so many dark colors and I still ended up using some gray. Ah well!

This card used the Basic Gray cardstock as a base. I used Blushing Bride DSP from the Hostess Level I paper pack for the top portion. It's such an old fashioned wall paper design. I stamped the image from Friends Never Fade on the bottom portion of the card. I have to get this set! I used a friend's when we were stamping together!

I die cut a Top Note in Blushing Bride cardstock and trimmed off a portion of it for a different look. I put Victoria lace across the card and an Antique Brad at the edge to hold it, otherwise the stickiness came through. I strung more lace through a silver ribbon slide and used a glue dot to stick it to the upper portion of the card along with a vanilla half pearl from the Pretties Kid. The sentiment and F are from the set Vintage Vogue and the small word 'friends' in script is from Tiny Tags. I adhered the tag with a brad in Basic Gray from the new Neutrals brad collection.

You can barely see it but I punched out a teeny tiny heart in gray with the new heart border punch. Don't ask, I just thought it was so doggone cute! At any rate, here's my vintage card for the week.

Take care!
Much love and joy,



  1. Very pretty! I want to try more with the vintage style, but it doesn/t reallycome naturally to me. I love all the samples, but when I try it out, it just doesn't seem to work. I'll just have to keep trying. Love the DSP you used!

  2. Liking the pink and gray - great combo. I'm dedicated to mastering this vintage card craze -- so keep your examples coming -- they help to inspire me!

  3. Love what you did with the lace, ribbon slide, and pearl!
