I have a shabby vintage quilt style card to show you today made from a quite contemporary stamp set - Six Sided Sampler - it comes on it's own or in a bundle along with it's matching punch. I have used both to make the card starting with stamping on very vanilla card stock using a variety of pastel ink shades and stamp sets which are flowery or chintz in theme. Then I stamped over this using the hexagon which gives a stitched outline from the set and then punched all the hexagons out ! I then glued them all to some card ( pre-cut to fit the front of my card base ) and the bits you trim off will amazingly fill in all your gaps - I don't know how this happens - it's magic !!!
Here is a close up of how it looks !
It doesn't matter if they are not perfectly matched up - this all adds to the hand made charm !!!! When the hexagons are well glued down run the whole panel through an embossing folder - I used the new Beautifully Baroque folder as I wanted the panel to look like a shabby vintage quilt !
I then mounted it onto my card front after distressing the edges a little.
I have seen similar cards like this on Pinterest and of course beautiful inspirational images of faded vintage quilts - this is my version and I added some of the delicious new Ruffle Stretch Trim because it looked like the old fashioned ruffles on vintage quilts !
Thanks for taking the time to visit !
