Challenge #3: Vintage or Retro Style
Graphic 45 is our sponsor this month, so let's see what you can make in a vintage or retro style. Do you hoard lace or vintage hat pins? Do you snap up all the postcards at yard sales? Do you love mid-century modern? Do you long for avocado appliances and orange shag carpets? Show your vintage or retro spin on a paper crafting project.
Oh, for those who are curious, I never did learn how to tat but I'm still fascinated by tatted lace.
Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
Gasp! Thud! First at the beauty of your card, and then after reading your post and reading that you actually USED that vintage tatted lace that had been hoarded for a century! So. . I think you should give the card to yourself or turn it into a wall hanging that way you can still keep it! :-) Love everything about this from the scripture to the flowers, to the DP to the tatting!! Lovely! Thanks for joining us and sharing your style at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful card! I love the vintage charm and pretty lace trim. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, Marsha! This elegant card is just oozing with vintage goodness and excellent design. I can't believe that you used that piece of tatted lace....I don't know that I could have been brave enough to do that. The soft colors, the wonderful layers and that beautiful, beautiful lace just take my breath away. I would frame this one and keep it forever. And if you don't want to do that, may I send you my address? LOL Thanks for playing along in Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #3: Vintage or Retro!ReplyDelete
Oh my I can't believe you cut into that lace! I know I wouldn't have been brave enough to do that. You should for sure keep the card. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful card with us at CHACB!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous card Marsha! As the others have said...you're a braver woman than I to cut into a historic treasure. The end result though is wonderful. Now to frame it so you or someone special can enjoy it for years to come. Hm...maybe mounted on one of your wonderful Mixed Media Canvas pieces.ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful. Kudos for using your lace, but in the end this is a perfect place to use it.ReplyDelete

Marsha, this is lovely. You almost made me cry....how did you ever make yourself cut that lace? I have hoarded lace that is NOT sentimental at all and I cannot use it! Thank you so much for playing along with Craft Hoarders Anonymous!ReplyDelete
