Vintage Blue Love

Hi there dear friends!! I hope you are having a wonderful day!!  I'm positively excited to share some Vintage Blue love with you today!!!

The first card features a very vintage design using Vintage Blue Paper, Whatnots, and Peek-a-boos.  I layered a strip of Motif paper on top of a trimmed Peek-a-boo and stitched the seam.
I fussy cut the bird from a Whatnot and layered him on top of another Whatnot and a Prima Birdcage.  I added some Tea Dyed Twill Ribbon and button embellishments.
Supplies Used:
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Papers:  Motif
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Whatnots
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Peek-a-Boos
Other Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock, Tiny Tags Die, Friendship Jar Stamps (Sentiment), buttons and twine;  Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink; Melissa Phillips Tea Dyed Twill; Prima Birdcage

I just had to make a Christmas Card using the Vintage Blue line and I thought Tim Holtz Tattered Pine Cone Die would complement the papers perfectly!
I trimmed a Vintage Blue Peek-a-Boo and then layered it over Rustic Cream cardstock. Then I added strips of Glitz Design Vintage Blue Motif paper on the top and bottom of the card.  I added the Tatted Pinecones, a birdcage Peek-a-Boo,  some vintage hymnal paper and buttons to embellish the card.

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Papers:  Motif
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Peek-a-Boos
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Teeny Alpha Stickers: Pearl
Other Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream, Kraft and Spring Moss Cardstock, Wonderful Words Holiday Die, buttons and twine;  Vintage Hymnal Paper; Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink and Tattered Pinecone Die; Melissa Phillips Tea Dyed Twill; Prima Lace

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very Gltizy Day!!
