Today I have a card using Whimsy's new Slimline Stardust Die. When I first started cardmaking, I loved creating with a vintage style. Somehow I kind of got away from that, but today decided it was time to revisit that style. I used Gesson to adhere old book paper to a white piece of cardstock. It mutes the colors, like a white wash. Once it was dry, I used the Slimline Stardust die. I then splattered it with black water color, used my sewing machine for the edges, and distressed the edges with scissors. I used Tim Holtz Foundry Wax in Gilded for the edges.
I used the stars to create a flower. They were cut from water color paper and given a wash of pink. The Gilded Foundry Wax was used on the edges and heat set. I stacked them and added a vintage button to the center. The leaves are from the Wild Weeds Die set. Those were also cut from water color paper and given a wash of greens with Foundry wax on the edges. The sentiment is part of the Acts of Kindness stamp set. Tulle was tucked in behind my stars and a scattering of black sequins from my stash.
It was fun going vintage on this one!
Be sure to check out Whimsy's full release! The next release is coming out in a few days. :)
