Off late I've found myself quite hooked on Mini Albums!! I guess all of us crafters go through these phases and clearly I'm no exception. Today I've got a new album to share with you - it's a vintage bridal album!
The album wasn't always a vintage bridal album... it was supposed to just be a vintage album. Then as I got crafting, I found myself adding roses, then more roses and even more - until finally it looked seriously bridal! Which is why I have re-christened it a Vintage Bridal album.
All the roses were made using the ItsyBitsy Swirly rose die. It's so easy to use and you can really make gorgeous roses with it. What is interesting about this project is that I used the same color of card stock for the entire cover. It was all a creamy white. I added the vintage feel only with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I inked the roses with it, then shaded the background design with it. Gradually with all the shading and inking, I had 2 shades on the cover creating this fabulous aged look.
A pretty bow with cream ribbon finished off my project. And I think it looks pretty awesome! What do you think? Do let me know - would love to hear your thoughts.
