Vintage Typewriter A6 card 21

Whilst the sun was shining earlier I took full advantage of the fact, and made this cute little A6 card. I’m glad I did as it started raining just after I had finished photographing it!

This card is so adorable, and perfect for sending a little love note to your beau.

I crafted it using my favourite colours too, and the little flicks of mermaid lagoon distress paint add an extra little touch.

Background created using*-

other items used to create this card include the ‘Just my Type’ stamp and co-ordinating die set from clearly besotted stamps, and paper from the Sweet Dixie spring sentiments paper pack, and Queen and Company embellishments.

Hey Rachel – what a great card! I love the pop of color you put in the center background and the addition of the enamel dots that create great movement in your composition. Very creative! Thank you so much for sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C!
