Vintage Kraft CTMH Typeset Card with Tim Holtz and Pink Paislee

Lots of stamping on this CTMH 6 x 6 Kraft Die Cut Card base
 Vintage uses lots of stuff!  I have lots of stuff that I like to use.  Therefore, vintage should be easy for me to do, but it isn't.  I struggle with proportion.  The people who are able to "Do Vintage" without having a visual overload experience are very talented; and I'm in awe of their ability!  Here is my recent attempt at a vintage-y feeling card.

Colonial White metal tags stamped with black Stazon ink
 The top metal tag is stamped with Parisian Anthology stamps from Pink Paislee.  The bottom tag is stamped with images from CTMH's Live Inspired set. The Desert Sand and Bamboo card stock rectangles were cut with Spellbinders die cuts and stamped with designs from CTMH's Ciao set.

Tim Holtz film strip adhered along scalloped edge
 The die cut card has a scalloped fold over edge.  With this configuration, the opening is at the top of the card.

A view of the front of the card as it is opened
 When the scalloped flap is lifted, the striped ribbon and decorative Typeset paper are better exposed.

CTMH Pair-a-Phrase stamps on card stock layers
Stamped Canvas Badge Button and Colonial White button were stamped with Chocolate and Cocoa inks.  A small piece of lace was sewn to the button and adhered to the card with mini glue dots.
