Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - Vintage Seed Packet


Oh my, how in love are you with this month's Sweet 'n Sassy sets!?  Today's full reveal has to be one of my favorites...Vintage Seed Packet!  This amazing set contains this beautiful, round, vintage frame and flower along with a boatload of various sentiments and other elements to decorate your frame...how fabulous is that!?
 
I decided to try and create the look of a real seed packet so I stamped the frame, 10 cent image, grow in grace (and the sentiment is already curved so it fits perfectly in that spot!), and good seed sentiments on a piece of cream cardstock.  Then I bent the "fine seed..." sentiment so it fit in the top of the frame.  The flower was stamped on a separate piece of paper, colored with Copics, and mounted in the center of the circle.  Then I aged the edges of the cardstock with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and crinkled the paper...just a bit.
 
The background of my paper got stamped with a chicken wire stamp, from Tim Holtz, and I added a big 'ol crinkled bow for some more vintage charm.
 
Looking forward to seeing more creative ideas using this set?  Visit the DT blogs, listed below, for some crafty goodness and be sure to comment along the way for a chance to win lots of fun prizes!
