Vintage layered wedding card

Hello lovely people,

Yes, I am still here!
Some of you may be forgiven for wondering where I have been and I'm sorry I haven't been visiting your blogs much of late but things are so hectic right now.
I have decided to stop beating myself up over it, get on track with everything else and hopefully I'll soon be able to get back to checking out all your lovely creations :-)

For now, it's time for a new challenge at As You Like It and our theme is...

YOUR FAVOURITE...LINE (from the bingo board)
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

This is the board and I have chosen fussy & fancy, lace and pearls, which is probably no surprise because you know how much I love to layer up pretty papers and details :-)


Our sponsor this time is Wild Orchid Crafts with a £12 voucher


I chose a vintage style layered design which enabled me to use a few new bits of stash, starting with the gorgeous DP and one of my new scallop dies.
I really like the combination of shaped layers on this design.

The flowers are also new and are a fab (and flatter!) alternative to my beloved 3D flowers.

A truly beautiful card Kat, with your style all over it! LOVE the vintage papers you've used - and wow to those fabulous diecuts... the flowers are the perfect finishing touch - and like you say, much easier for Royal Mail to work with! LOL!

Big hugs

Gorgeous Vintage feel to this beautiful card Kat. Love the shape (my fav' as you know!). Hope you and Dr Hubby are having a fabulous Easter break together. Knowing medical shifts though, that's unlikely! So I hope you get some time together somewhere. Big hugs, Wends x
