I love vintage cards, and enjoy all the steps it takes to take to make it look like a step back in time.  There are so many layers and techniques but don't be intimidated, even a beginner stamper can complete this card- there is nothing difficult about it. I really liked the pop of color using Pool Party in the ribbon, buttons, and using dab of marker on the fussy cut images. I swapped this card at Stampin' Up!'s Convention with a few demo friends. You can find all the products in the Annual Catalog and the Holiday Mini Catalog that goes LIVE Aug. 1, 2013

Tip:  Rough up the edges before sponging them to add depth to the layers. Sponge in an ink a shade or two darker than the card stock.
Fray the edges of your ribbon and separate your Linen Thread to add texture to your buttons and bows.

Tie some of your buttons in the front and some in the back.
