Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop

It’s time for the Design Diva’s  monthly blog hop…..                       

                               

If you arrived here from Vicki’s blog at Bountiful Blessings you are in the right place. If you want to start at the beginning please start at Cindy’s blog Stamp with Me Cindy G.  The point is to use something in our project that we have not used in the past 6 months – I have so much stash and lately have been going through my older papers one at a time and trying to use them up all at once. I really do love the feeling of using up what I have. So, my project is a card made with an older piece of paper – I believe it is the Periphery line from Basic Grey??  With Father’s Day just ahead I decided to try my hand at a vintage masculine card – something I always struggle with, but here it is anyway…..

100_4682 (800x639)

 

The buttons on this card are truly “vintage” some found in a lovely shop on Etsy and some found just junkin at garage sales, flea markets, and thrift stores – one of my most favorite things to do. The button card stamp is from the Button Boutique set, and the sentiment is from the Fillable Frames #8 stamp set – both from Papertrey Ink, the burlap is from JoAnn’s, and the little dragonfly etc. strip if from another shop on Etsy called Cemerony.

Your next stop from here is at Karen’s blog Studio at the Lake – have fun!

Take care friends, Dru

Dru, this is so lovely! The colors and textures give a truly warm vintage feel. The buttons are not only terrific, but aptly represent sea shells, since many buttons were once made from shells. I love every bit of this card!
