Vintage / Antique Card Class

We got together for our Vintage / Antique Class this past weekend and had a good time learning some techniques for making our cards have that old vintage style.  We made a few general cards and then a nice vintage Christmas card.
We made a vintage card with a matching little gift box (using Box #2) and the Big Shot. 

Stamps:  Elements of Style; Tiny Tags, En Francais
Paper:  Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Ink:  Not Quite Navy, River Rock, Soft Suede
Extras:  Mini Vintage Tags, rope (from Clearance rack)

Next we tried our hand at the Cracked Glass Technique and had fun making a card with the clock from Sense of Time to look like an old clock that had a cracked face.
Stamps:  Sense of Time
Paper:  River Rock, Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Natural Vanilla
Inks:  Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso, Marina Mist
Extras:  Vintage lace ribbon, 1/8" Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon, water bottle, sponges, Antique brads

Kristine changed the layout of hers a little, but it looks really great with the other sentiment available with the Sense of Time set.
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you enjoyed what we have been working on lately.  I will do my best to become more active in my blog posts so that it is not every couple of months, but every couple of days that I share new projects.  Thanks to all that I get encouragement and ideas from while viewing their blogs, etc.
Happy Stamping!
