Yes, another Vintage Vogue!

I just can't help myself, this is definitely my favourite stamp set from the Mini catalogue!! And, my favourite colour combination, Bashful Blue and Basic Black.

I made a simple (yes, simple!) shutter card in Basic Black and added Bashful Blue designer papers to all but three of the panels. The two long thin panels have pieces of Bashful Blue cardstock that have been stamped using Bashful Blue ink with one of the stamps from Vintage Vogue. The rectangular panel in the centre is layers of Mellow Moss, Bashful Blue and Whisper White. I stamped one of the sentiments from the set in Mellow Moss on the white and added the small flower which had been stamped first in Bashful Blue and then the edges were rolled in Mellow Moss ink (Rock 'n' Roll technique!). This was attached with a black brad.
I used the same technique for the large flower on the last panel and the layered flowers on the front panel, both were then attached using a Filigree silver brad with a black brad through the centre. The front panel is layers of Mellow Moss, Bashful Blue and Whisper White. Onto the Whisper White I stamped the Friends sentiment in Mellow Moss, then on a scrap of white I stamped it again in Bashful Blue and cut out just the capital 'F' and popped this up over the Mellow Moss 'F' with dimensionals.

Sound complicated, but it's not..........honest!!
