Vintage Wedding Swaps

 I had to search through my stash to make this Vintage Atc and card for Our swap group "Crafty Card Swap"
I just don't do weddings but remembered I had some Graphic 45 pics that I used for another project and luckily these just fit in with this months makes

the frame,hearts  and little flowers are from 2 different sets of  "LeaBilities" dies the spare bit from the flowers looked like little horseshoes which fitted in with the theme. I used a swirly metal stencil and a gold pen for the dotted swirls..also on the envelope but added the flowers from the same stencil the pearls are made using a "Pinflair" pearl wand the Atc itself is from my Leonie Artist Trading card set which I won in  a raffle.
I used the same stencil for the background , the flowers and frame are from the same sets of Lea'Bilities as above the gold flowers are cut down from a  Cheery Lynn die and I cut  because I just wanted the daisies.
the swirl is a Cheery Lynn die cut in half.I distressed the sides with Victorian Velvet Distress ink. added the pearls  and the sentiment from the Graphic45 sheet

Open Sea double flip card

 I so enjoyed making this card borrowed from StampinUp withTami with my own slant on it
                                                            back view of swivel

                                                                    front view showing swivel

I had a play with my punches to show how versatile they are (the tulips idea borrowed from StampinUp with Bev. thank you Bev.x)
used the bird punch to create tulips and the owl punch for the cat. The tail was made from the leaf branch cut down ....(heee heee... I know it looks like a lion's tail ) 
for the tulip petals I used card stock coloured with shaving foam and red distress ink then coloured the edge of the petal.
