Totally Papercrafts ,,,,,, Victorian Challenge :-)



This week on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge Victoria chose the theme and she chose ,,,,,

VICTORIAN ,,, we are expecting LOADS of entries this week !!!! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Melissa from Meljen Designs so some gorgeous digi’s on offer this week :-)

I thought that in Victorian times it was very fashionable to have ‘Soiree’s’ and have a little entertainment around the piano after dinner,,, well that’s where my inspiration came from anyways ,,,, :-)


I love this Party Cats stamp set from Crafty Secrets , very cute images and sentiments on there. I decided to make gate-fold card today. I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo DI. The papers and cardstock is all from SU ( thanks Mandi) and I stitched all the edges on my machine . I used a Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle and a Ribbon Banner, stamped with a sentiment from the set, I popped the banner on a strip of satin ribbon from The Ribbon Girl, I made a rosette using a TH Mini Rosette die cut and popped a musical brad on top.



I stamped a little mouse and sentiment on the inside to finish.



Thanks for looking, our fab GD Lisa and the DT have all made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the TPC to see them.
