Vintage Kinda Eclectic

Although I don't do nearly enough of them, vintage cards are one of my favorites.  They are the ones you just want to stare at for hours looking at all the little details.  Although the Kinda Eclectic set doesn't 'scream' vintage, it certainly can lend itself to a vintage card.  Being a vintage card there are a lot of elements, but sometimes busy can be great!  

When trying to go for a vintage feel use Very Vanilla card stock instead of Whisper White.  Choose subtle colors rather than brights.  Browns and Linen Thread are also good things to use.  The DSP on this project is actually from the Typeset Specialty DSP.  It's not our traditional DSP, it's more like paper from a older book.  It's amazing!  As you can see the edges are roughed up a bit and lifting in some places, and that's what I want.  I've gently sponged everything with Crumb Cake ink to enhance the 'vintage feel'.
