Vintage Rose Card

I love the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart because it’s so versatile and it has fabulous three-dimensional options like this vintage rose!  I made this card using a vintage 1957, beautifully aged electronics magazine.  A word of caution: old paper like this doesn’t cut well with the Cricut and it sticks to the sticky mat something fierce.  After cutting the rose shape out with the AP Cartridge on the Cricut, I had to scrape it off and re-cut the delicate paper with my scissors, so this is definitely a one-of-a-kind card that I have not replicated.

After cutting the vintage paper into a rose shape, it looked empty so I cut a smaller rose out of some gorgeous Tulip cardstock from the Roxie paper pack from CTMH [update: this paper pack is now retired].  I spritzed the assembled rose with Smooch spray, in a glittery brown color called Log Cabin and attached a crystal to the center of the rose.  The card came together with brown cardstock, beautiful patterned Roxie paper,  a stamped sentiment, and my favorite label punch.

Here are a few views of that vintage rose.  I drove three hours from home and hand delivered this birthday card to the birthday girl who was at work.  I could not risk this card getting crushed and damaged in the mail!
