Pink Persimmon Card and Artist Trading Card



On the card above I used "Sweetheart Silk Card" with "Vintage Greetings".  Combine these great vintage images with a few dies and you can put this card together quick.  The dies are Quickutz (buttons / flowers on dress form), Cheery Lynn (doily) and Spellbinders (dress form).  

All of these newly released images are all about 2.5 x 3.5.  Perfect for ATC's as long as you don't want a border.  The edges of the of the Baby Pearls measures 2.5" x 3.5".  There is a small amount of space around  the edges of  the images for Men's Buttons, Mermaid Pearls, Sweetheart Silk Card, and Happy Girl.  The Mini Bingo Card measure 2 5/8" x 3 5/8".  So if you used it for an ATC, you would trim away some of the solid border.   And of course the are perfect size for cardmaking and scrapbooking.  I love how Mermaid Pearls, Baby Pearls, and Happy Girl have those little boxes perfect for journaling, well at least for those of you who like your own handwriting.  I can tell you I don't like mine and what I would do is type it up, then cut the center of the boxes out creating a little window and then lay the image over my typed journaling.

So what do you think??  
When you look at the images, what type projects do you start dreaming up??

Speaking of ATC's ...

2.5" x 3.5" Artist Trading Card


Not really an ATC person??   
Well, do what I"m going to do with this one .....  put it on the front of a card.  I will share it again later when it's all done.  I couldn't resist creating it when I seen the banner challenge over at "Fun with ATC's".  They post challenges every 2 weeks so you still have time to enter if you like creating ATC's.  I used "Small Banner Set" and the birds and sentiments from "Singing Birds".

Well that's it for today.  Hopefully very soon I will be finishing up some more Mixed Media projects and scrapbook layouts to share!

Absolute perfection! What a pretty card, I love the die cuts, the ribbon wrapped on its little card, and especially the border treatment - the edging looks like my grandparents' photos from the 40's. Thanks for joining us at HSS! Erika

LOVE your card and your ATC!! That's a great idea to put an ATC on a card. You can also add them to a layout. Of course, I'm an "ATC person". LOL

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Hi Melisa! Thanks for following me. I really appreciate it! I am a LOVER of Pink Persimmon Stamps. I just ordered from them, and I REALLY REALLY wanted this thread card stamp, but had to draw the line somewhere, so this one will be on my WISH LIST for next time. I just got Pink Persimmon to sponsor Word Art Wednesday for a one-time spot in 2013, and I'm SUPER excited about it. Their stamps are SUPER ADORABLE, and I'm SO grateful. Thanks for sharing this great card. It's really beautiful. You can link up at Word Art Wednesday if you like. Of course, I'd LOVE to have you link up.
Have a blessed week!
