-{fresh vintage love}-

I was thinking the other day, if someone wanted to start making some cards on a limited budget, what would I suggest?

So, I set myself a task, make some cards with no more than 2 stamp sets, one ink pad, and a couple of different coloured cardstock.

Here is what I made using the (in my humble opinion) absolutely luscious set from the Saleabration catalogue.  The set of 5 stamps is FREE with any purchase over £45 (not including postage).

Ok, so this one has 3 different colours of card, but it could easily have been just 2.
I was inspired to do the border design along the top from a card my SU grandma Monica Gale made, see it >here<.

I masked off a square and experimented with creating lighter effects by stamping onto a scrap of paper before applying to my card.  

I'm loving using Naturals Ivory as a card base at the moment, not just because it creates a neutral background but it's also a bargain at £6.25 for 40 sheets - that's less than 8p a card (C6 size)
