Simple Vintage Garden District Cards with Rae

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Have you seen our June card kit this month? It features the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Garden District papers.  The vintage feel of this papers paired with he bright colors make this collection so fun to play with.  Check out the kit here:

The rest of the design team has been posting some amazing projects made with this kit, and today I’m going to show you 4 simple cards that I came up with.  First up is my “Dream” card:

I used a faux stitching technique on the pink gingham paper, and on the teal doily.  I cut that using a small doily die.  I cut one of the clothesline stickers to fit the card and added a couple of other small stickers from the kit.  I inked the Scrapaholic chipboard swirls and then ticked them under some flowers- the small pink ones are from my stash. I traced a lot of the elements with a black pen for added interest.

Next up is another “Dream” card:

I started out by cutting one of the frames that had room for two pictures in half.  I added one of the sentiment cut out cards to the frame for the base of my design.  I used the same design features as the other “dream” card using black accents.

“Thinking of You” Card:

This is a card with lots of layers!  I cut some banners for the layers under the sentiment card that I put in another one of the frames that came in the kit and added a sentiment card to.  I cut and distressed some of the crotchet trim, then tucked some pieces in between the layers.  I also added two of the heart stickers to the top and a couple of whitewashed brads from my stash.  I painted the chipboard swirls white, then added some green chalk ink.

“Today is the Day” Card:

This is my favorite of all the cards I made with this kit.  I started out by cutting a couple of layeres for the background and distressed them.  I added some print stenciling  with white chalk paste.  The green circle is a die cut from the green paper in the kit.  I added more of the distressed crotchet trim and added the lovely Darice yellow roses and pink roses from my stash.

And here they all are again:
