What’s not to love about this adorable card? You can definitely tell there was a lot of love and detail put into this sweet card. This was designed by Cherry Nelson from Cherry’s Jubilee. Be sure to visit her blog for more wonderful inspiration.
I just love how girly and frilly this card is. The corset stamp is such a fun image to work with. Cherry designed this card for The Rubber Cafe and she used the stamps Be Stylish and Happy Birthday Script.
The image was stamped in chocolate ink and added just a smidgen of color with some of Tim Holtz distress markers. Adding a foam adhesive to the back of the image gave it some dimension. Tulle and chiffon rose ribbons from Maya Road were used to give it a sassy bottom to the corset. Cotton Candy Jellie dots from The Rubber Cafe were added to the corset for the buttons.
Adding a vintage buckle and vintage mother of peal buttons to the top just gives it such a finished look.
Not top it off with a sentiment at the bottom Happy Birthday and you have such an adorable vintage card to give to a girl friend, or any family member on their birthday. Thank you Cherry for sharing this beautiful card with us today.
