CARD - A little touch of vintage

Hello everyone,

Pour la version en français, je vous donne rendez-vous sur le blog de Toutencolle

Here's a new vintage card made with products mainly from Toutencolle. It was fun to make that kinda card again. I have not done this for a very long time (we are talking years here)

For this card, I used the papers from the Dusty Blue Paper pad.
First paper is 14.5 x 14.5 cm
Second paper 14x14 cm
The edges of the papers are distressed and inked with Versamagic inks
The smaller one is randomly stamped with Manuscrit Fin stamp by Toutencolle

On the smaller panel, I have added lace and strips of distressed and inked papers on the left

I then used the Toutencolle black frame which I glued onto a cream paper from the Dusty Blue pad. 
Randomly stamped it with the Manuscrit stamp again.
Added the pearls on the black frame

 The Cameo stamp  was stamped 3 times
1st impression: I cut the whole image with scalloped die-cut and inked the edges
2nd impression: I cut out the center part and inked it up
3rd impression: I clear embossed and cut out the lady.
Everything is mounted with 3D foam squares

 The little perfume bottle is painted in white. 
I then used the Toutencolle stencil and Versamagic ink to add a little heart.
Once the card was finished, I added glossy accent onto the heart

I painted the embellishment "Bonheur Ensemble" in white
Which turned off-white once I had added the Stickles glitter glue. Did not mean to.. It works here but something to keep in mind if you want something just plain white: don't add Stickles

 Don't forget your envelope.
