I found a great free site via Pinterest where there are some amazing vintage type free papers. Here is Astrid's Pinterest site and here is her blog. I really liked the papers I saw and downloaded one I liked to use on a card.
I printed it out at A6 size onto some plain computer paper. I wish now I used some slightly heavier card. Any how, I trimmed the printed paper and added some stamps on the corners. I used Hero Arts Hydrangea with some Dusty Concord distress ink and the sentiment is Hero Arts as well. I used my Tim Holtz ruler and a pin to make the holes around the edge. I distressed them to make them pop a bit. I finished off with some roses made with lilac computer weight paper. I layered three pieces together and cut with the die. I then layered all the layers together. Finished with a little lilac ribbon tied in a bow.
I have downloaded a few other papers from Astrid and added to my files. So a big thanks to her.
