That is a real vintage sewing pattern tissue paper sewn to the crate paper. the Heart String's sentiment is stamped on some cream Neenah and the edges are inked with creamy brown chalk. this is up on pop dots above the shipping tag that was stained with some fiber scraps walnut ink tintz Verdigris color. the button's are vintage. there is some cream hemp string in the largest one. This card is 6" square in real life, the lace and crochet flower are also vintage, the base pp is from My Minds Eye, the fabric stitched corners are from Making Memories.

Oh this is awesome Stacy! LOVE the way you used an old pattern on the card! Bet my Mom has some of those in a drawer somewhere??!! Will have to go treasure hunting next time I'm over!! I've already "borrowed" her old button tin! ;0)

Stacy, I looked at this for a very long time, and then I read your blog for some time as well. I admire your style and your heart. This so is charmingly vintage, and that you the used the "real deal" for much of it truly sets your work apart. Completely lovely. Hugs....
