HYCCT18 From The Heart

This is for the HYCCT18 Vintage Style. We needed to make a vintage card. I have to admit, this is out of my element and this is my 1st one. I found this great website for free vintage postcards you can download free which is HERE.
I printed the postcard onto SU Creamy Caramel cs after I decided what size I wanted. The base of the 5X5 card is also creamy caramel cs. I brushed the edges with Brown Distress Ink. I layered with SU Chocolate Chip, used the distressing tool for the edges. I layered again with SU Creamy Caramel and used the CB Script folder, then sponged over it with the Brown Distress Ink. I titled the postcard used 2 pieces of olive handmade papers underneath. I added a creamy string of squares and wrapped a piece of tan ribbon around the card. I also tied a gold key charm into the ribbon. I added mini gold adhesive beads to the bottom and the sides. I stopped at Michaels on the way home from work and found these red old fashion flowers. I used my hot glue gun to attach the flowers along with the gold large adhesive beads. I also added a gold dragonfly charm. I thought it needed something else, so I added the gold corner piece. I'm glad I was able to pull this together.

The sentiment on the postcard says "From A True Heart"
