I love crafting with antiques. I have a variety of techniques I've already tried, and will be sharing them on this blog.
One of the simplest and quickest crafts I make is a card.
Below is a Rubber Stamped image on Calligraphy paper and embossed with gold embossing powder on card stock. The technique is quite easy - I embossed the image with gold onto cardstock, rubber stamped the image on paper and than tore the paper. I matched up the two images and trimmed the paper and added the antique sewing items.
However, the antiques are quite interesting - the ribbon is a gorgeous trim from the Victorian era trimmed in metal woven gold trim, and the at least one of buttons might be that old too.
