Inspiration for Vintage Treasures
There is a special place in our hearts for those things kept in a hope chest. Other than a promise of the future, they symbolize things of value and keepsakes that bring back treasured memories. I delved there to find memories, filigree jewelry and keepsakes of old. From long-forgotten turn of the century jewelry to the edgings on an old tattered handkerchief, I love bringing the past into the present in a style that is ....well, timeless. These things -- bejeweled lockets, a sweet tiara and vintage adornments from long ago -- provided the sweet inspiration and restoration of some lovely, lovely Vintage Treasures.
The physical dies in this collection have an extra measure of flexibility and function. Most templates have an outer rim, and inlay and an inner rim that you can use for your sentiment.
I'm tickled to introduce S4-991 Brillante Rondelle Etched Dies
Isn't this Die Set gorgeous?!! Love circle dies to begin with but then when you take Becca's timeless and beautiful flourishes and motifs and add them they just become magical. Love the different patterns in this set. SO beautiful!
I'm thrilled to introduce S4-989 Cannetille Rectangle Etched Dies
Another gorgeous Die Set! Love how the corners of the rectangle are mitered and also the beautiful scrolls throughout. As you can see, this Die Set (as most of Becca's Dies) can be used as a stand alone set or paired with many others. (I used the larger Die as the base on the first card above.)
Love the look of using this as the card front and having those see through panels. I just simply glued the card front to the back by adding some glue just along the top portion of the die cut. Super easy. (Just make sure you are using strong glue but one that dries clear.
