Having a Vintage Time at Whimsical Designs

Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome back for another Whimsical Wednesday.
Today we have a new challenge and you need to start thinking old or antique.
This week's challenge...Vintage
Here is my Design Team project...
We went on a field trip the other day to Cross Creek, which is where the writer of The Yearling lived, and the guide was carrying an old pocket watch. A few of boys were quite fascinated with it. I even had a student get one over the weekend and bring it to school to share. What an impact!
 I made a pocket watch card as I was thinking of my boys! Lots of inking on the edges to make it look antique
 Double gold loop bow
Colorbok paper ~ Victorian Parlour
brown and cream card stock
Old West Cricut cartridge ~ pocket watch (p. 68) cut at 2 1/2"
WD stamp ~ Everyday Sentiments
brown ink
gold ribbon
Have you heard about the Book of the Month project? If you love to read you will be quite interested. Be sure to stop by Whimsical Designs and check it out!

  8. Beautiful card! The background paper is perfect, and all the distressing gives it such a great vintage feel.
