Victorian romance, though vintage, isn't something I've made a lot of. As a matter of fact, I don't think I've made any Victorian anything. But, the challenge for our shoebox swap was to create a card using the oldest stamp set we had and if we couldn't or wouldn' use it, we were challenged to sell it. So, I perused the stamp shelves in my craft room and the oldest stamp set I had that I had never used was Toile Blossoms (retired SU). I could hardly believe it! I so love vintage stuff and could not believe that I hadn't used it but I hadn't. I realized after much thought, that I hadn't used it because it's a Definately Decorative set, meaning it was created to be used for decorating walls and things in your home. It's a great and beautiful set, but there just wasn't anything that came to mind in using it for me. Anyway, when I decided to use it as a background stamp, I remembered that I had a sweet little girl stamp that also had a Victorian feel that I hadn't used so I decided to use them together to create this card below.
I hope you enjoyed my project today; I've been waiting anxiously to share it with you. Later this week I hope to share with you some fun new projects using NEW RELEASES from My Favorite Things so be sure to visit and check them out.
God bless and Happy Stamping!
