shabby summer goodies.......









Hi there and happy summer to you! Cherry here to share a couple cards made with a few Vintage Street Market goodies of course. I started off picking out some paper scraps and decided to use the http://store.vintagestreetmarket.com/collections/craft-pantry-staples/products/denim-twirly-twine journal cards and mini tags from the back of the Twirly twine packages for layering. I used stitching to add a homespun touch to both cards and used the ledger paper from the family fun kit http://store.vintagestreetmarket.com/collections/family-fun-collection/products/family-fashion-accessory-kit-1 on my aqua colored card. I also used the multi-use papers from the Dimestore vintage kit http://store.vintagestreetmarket.com/collections/paper-sheets-tags/products/dimestore-vogue for my pink birthday card by layering the sheets and cutting them into strips and than sewing down the middle. I than cut in on each side and created my own paper fringe and circled it around to create a shabby bloom. Other than that I just added a few goodies from my stash to create two one of a kind cards…ready for the recepients! Hpe you enjoy and are inspired to mix and match your VSM goodies with your paper scraps! hugs
