Vintage Finished

I am really beginning to love vintage and when I saw this challenge on the Crop Stop Blog I knew I just had to pull out my retired Roses in Winder set from Stamping Up. This set can be used for all occasions, wedding, anniversary, birthday or a thinking of you card. I tried a new to me technique…….Cracked Glass. I have had the utee for several years but never even opened the jar. I was very excited when it all worked out the first try. My new spellbinders Fleur dis Lis Motifs got another work out for the medallion behind the image. I layered the image on a scalloped edge spellbinder die cut and popped it up on the medallion. Very Vanilla cs used for the background was embossed with the Textile embossing folder. Lace and ribbon from the dollar store.

Here is a close up picture of the cracked glass. Super easy technique but time consuming.

You did a fantastic job with the vintage theme. The "cracked glass" was a perfect addition. Thank you for sharing this delightful project with us on the CropStop Challenge.
