A Vintage Inspired Card

Hi! Being that this week is 'Old Stamps Week' here on the SP Stamps Blog, I decided to go with a Vintage-Inspired card to stick with the 'old' theme!  I pulled out my All Zipped Up, Artsy Heartsy and my Bold Sentiments I sets and got started!!

I trimmed the front of the card smaller than the back and adhered some patterned paper on the inside so it would show, even when the card was closed.  I love the way this looks on cards!

After the sentiment was added to the front, I die cut some banners and I stamped the pocket from All Zipped Up on some coordinating stock.

I also stamped a heart from Artsy Heartsy to add to the pocket.  I love the versatility of the pocket stamp - there are so many things that can go on the outside, as well as stuff popping out from the inside!!!

For a finishing touch, I inked up a wooden die cut and added it to the pocket.  LOVE!

Here is the finished card:

I think it's perfect for a wedding or an anniversary!
