Vintage Floral Cards with Kristii Lockart

Hi there dear friends! I hope this post finds you having a wonderful day full of sunshine and blue skies. If you don't have any sunshine at the present time, I hope that you find a way to create your own. My favorite way to create sunshine on a cloudy day, is to design a card that will bring a smile to someone else's day. Ahhh...there is no greater joy than that!!
My first card is made with Glitz Designs Laced with Grace Whatnots. It doesn't get any easier than using a Whatnot as the base and embellishing your card with pretty little goodies. I am sure this little card will be the perfect cure for a cloudy day for a friend or loved one!
I added pearls to the centers of the flowers....sooooo pretty,
 
and I colored my white hug snug seam binding with Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire ink using a blending tool...so easy!!
 
I grounded the Whatnot to the card base using a thin scalloped border.  
Supplies used: 
Glitz Design "Laced with Grace" Whatnots
Glitz Design "Laced with Grace" Paper Layers

Other Suplies:
Papertrey Ink Cardstock: Kraft and Vintage Cream
Papertrey Ink Dies and Stamps: Tiny Tags and Parisian Lace Doily
Martha Stewart pearls
Bazzill Cardstock
Fiskars Scallop Punch
Webster's Pages Bloomers
Hug Snug Seam binding
Tim Holtz Ink: Chipped Sapphire and Brushed Corduroy
Making Memories Stick Pin

Next up, I created a sweet little vintage card to welcome baby. How fun to send a keepsake card to a brand new mom and brighten her day!!
I used a Stampin' Up! embossing folder to emboss the base of my card. Then I added some Brushed Corduroy distress ink to make the embossed images pop!
I added a Laced with Grace Journaling sticker and an Afternoon Muse Peekabo and had the perfect focal point for this little vintage card.
Supplies used:
Glitz Designs "Laced with Grace" Journaling Sticker
