vintage Pattern People {GAL-entines Cards}

Hi friends! I had a blast picking away at these cards over the past few days.

I was inspired by a sticker pack I bought containing hundreds of vintage fashion ladies that reminded me of the illustrations on sewing pattern envelopes. Since I buy what I like {and keep supplies that are my style regardless of trends and whether a product is discontinued or not} these dovetailed perfectly into my other paper crafting supplies. My advice to anyone starting a paper crafting or cardmaking hobby is to select the product they are drawn two and resist the trends. Often we think we like something that is trendy because it is familiar. Everybody else is doing it so we should too, right? Wrong! Grab the supplies YOU like and use the techniques I show you to make it your own. The only way to do it wrong is to not enjoy yourself! Let’s craft!

I did buy 2 new things for this project (affiliate links used)

Dig around in your stash for clothing labels, trims, extra buttons, and scraps of fabric you can use to make these your own. No rules, just fun! I wanted the cards to be able to be reused so instead of writing on the card itself I will write on the removable piece of cardstock I embossed with a frame embossing folder. I have a stamp that encourages people to reuse the card with no guilt:)

And there you have it, 10 cards that were fun to make! Happy crafting!

  1. Hi Lindsay I had purchased similar item and was way too much fussy cutting. Cannot stand the white border on my stickers. Pine Sunshine in your Mailbox

  2. Love these …bought them as soon as I saw them. I’ve been looking for images with vintage clothes. Most of the stickers I’ve seen are young girls in boho clothes.


  3. I hung in with you and watched the whole thing. Your cards are so fun, and pretty. I don’t think I’d be giving away the card should I be the lucky one receiving one. They really are pretty, and you did put in a whole lot of work to that base.
