Vintage Swap

For leadership, I joined in a 2nd swap for Vintage and Romantic Cards. What do you think? Is it vintage enough? 

I really wanted to use the Timeless Treasure Stamp Set and thought it would work perfectly with the musical notes wheel. I feel the embossed frame with the folded paper and the crochet trim adds a lot of texture. I also used the bright color of Tangerine Tango to add a little pop but muted it a bit by distressing the edges with Chocolate Chip classic ink and a sponge.

For the folded embellishment, you'll need to punch 2 circles. Fold the circle in half, fold it again in half, and then again in half. Your circle should now be divided into eighths. Cut one of the scored lines to the center of the circle. Then, start folding valleys and mountains (back and forth) until you have completed the circle, using the scored lines as your guidelines. Repeat for the other circle and adhere each circle to each other. This will in the end make a complete folded circle, which I have used to frame my stamped phonograph. (My folded circle is folded into sections of 16 instead of eighths.)
