This card is one that has focus on the beautiful printed paper.  The 5x7 white cardstock base is covered with  paper cut so it is best showcased.  White cardstock is cut with Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blooms II dies.  2 large, 1 medium and 1 small flower are sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Moonshadow
Mist , Lindys .  It looks brown but when tilted it is a violet color, really pretty. All 4 blossoms are stacked,  adhered and finished with one brown and one violet button tied with button twine.  The Mat Stack 1 is also lightly sprayed with the same mist.  A vintage cream oval is stacked on top and the Hero Arts sentiment is stamped in Dark Chocolate PTI ink.

This card is the compliment to the card posted below.  The only difference is a handmade flower that is like one used on a card  previously posted.  It is from a tutorial from Dawn McVey's blog My Favorite Things, a Superstar designer from Papertrey Ink.
Thanks for looking!
This is a simple card I made focusing on the paper.  It is a DCWV Stack.  The base is 5x7, white cardstock.  I layered the patterened paper, cut Navy blue cardstock with Mat Stack 1 Papertrey Ink die.  A White oval is on that mat Stack and stamped with a Stampin Up sentiment in Pure Poppy PTI ink.  That is all there is to it, super simple.  I will post a matching thank you as well. It will of course precede this post but the process is the same.  It is just the other part of the 12x12 sheet that did not have as much pattern on it.

This card is made with Cosmo Criket Joy Ride 6x6 Stack.  The base is 5x7 white cardstock.  A strip of Papertrey Ink Orange Zest 1 1/4 has a PTI Mat Stack 1, also in Orange Zest, layered with Vintage Cream cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped in Orange Zest ink.  The bottom border is Orange Zest cardstock cut with PTI Eyelet Lace die.  2 orange buttons are threaded with button twine.  The flower at the top of the card is one I made with instrucions from Dawn McVey's blog MY Favorite Things.  And it is trrue, it is my favorite blog.  I LOVE her cards and pictures and her whole family.  Her blog rocks and she is from Olathe, Kansas!  Not far from Overland Park!  Anyway, back to my flower, it is pages from a "vintage" book cut with a 2" Scallop Circle punch.  You cut 5 and squish 4 of them up, stack them together, glue them and glue a glass pearl from Walmart on top.  LOVE it!  I use it a lot.  Search Dawn's blog for a video on how to make it.

This card was a "step out" for me. I am not very Victorian.  I bought some vintage sheet mucic and cut a piece 4x6 to go on a 5x7 card.  A manila shipping tag was layered with several elements.  A piece of vintage lace is on the bottom.  Next, a piece of cream vintage felt was cut with Papertrey Ink Fillable Frames 3.  I layered a little lace medallion that was in my Mothers old craft box.  On top of that is a Ticket cut from Wall Decor and More Cricut cartridge.  Behind the ticket is a piece of graph paper stained with brown ink. The top of the tag is a piece of cream felt cut with Eyelet Lace die from of course, Papertrey Ink!  Finally, the flower on the upper left is vintage cream felt cut with Beautiful Blooms 3 PTI and sewn together with a pink button.  I made a Stick Pin with a corsage pin from Michaels with a gold long bead, a small pearl and one clear seed bead.  LOVE that Stick Pin.  So easy and very inexpensive to make! Oh, the tag was topped off with a length of a creamy white fiber.

This card is made with Papertrey Ink Green Tea Leaves patterned paper and Dark Chocolate solid cardstock.  The base is 5x7 white cardstock.  I cut a piece of Vintage Cream with the Spiral Notebook Page die.  That was stamped that with Order Ticket from It's Official.  The Get Well Soon sentiment is from hero Arts.  I also cut a ticket with the Just the Ticket border die and stamped it with the Admit One from It's Official.  Both of those were stamped with Dark Chocolate PTI ink.  I took a piece of thin cork and stamped the Bingo Card from It's Official In Dark Chocolate and cut it out.  I stacked the three elements and tied some tan embroidery floss around them.  They were all attached to the card with pop dots.  The Vintage Cream Get Well Soon Die cut is from Beyond Birthdays.

Another masculine card, do you think?  The paper is a old DCWV paper stack.  I used old reliable Mat Stack 1 PTI die and the oval for the Hero Arts sentiment stamped in Dark Chocolate PTI ink.  The Eyelet lace PTI die was cut with vintage felt that I sprayed with Suede Glimmer Mist.  The tickets are PTI Just the Ticket border, stamped with PTI It's Official in Dark Chocolate.  Don't you just love those tickets? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Papertrey Ink!
This card is made with Cosmo Cricket.  I used a Tim Holtz ticket, and I had a brass charm that I dotted the i with.  The PTI Mat Stack 1 is once again my border for my Stampin Up sentiment stamped in Dark Chocolate PTI ink.  The Eylet Lace border is also PTI.  My idea on this card ws to be masculine.  What do you think? Did I pull it off?
I like this one too, VERY similar.  From the same paper stack, and the same PTI Mat Stack 1 die.  This one uses a different PTI flower die but the same vintage felt. I used a button for the center of the flower.  I put the Stampin Up sentiment up near the top so it wouldn't cover up the flower image on the paper which I wanted to be the focal point of the card.
This card was made with a K& Co Stack.  I used a Papertrey Ink flower die and vintage felt to make the flower.  The center was made with gold seed beads. The sentament is a Hero Arts cling stamp with Pure Poppy PTI ink on a Vintage Cream oval cut with George and Basic Shapes.  The mat is Mat Stack 1 die.  I am so loving everything Papertrey Ink, especially their dies.  So versatlie because you can cut  felt which is my current favorite medium!
