Here are some cards that I've made for a vintage theme swap on Artsnthemail.

I'm a bit nervous about sending these ones out as I'm worried that the receipients might think they are a bit on the simple side. I have received some wonderful cards in this swap and I would hate to think of anyone being disappointed by my efforts.

When I saw this fabric I just fell in love with the vinatge images and just had to have it for this swap, but when it actually came to making the cards I realised that there wasn't too much I could do with the fabric without spoiling the images. I added lots of french knots to each card where the flowers were and this in itself took over half an hour on each card but once this was finished the cards still seemed a bit too simple somehow. I guess I will have to see what people think when they arrive, I can always go back and make something different if anyone comes back to say they didn't like the card.

I think sometimes simple is best! My card to you wasn't fancy - the lace said it all and I didn't want to spoil it. Don't worry :)
