Today's card is mimicking another card, which I did in 1980's teals and oranges. So, for a further "vintage" inspired look here's the same card in supposed 1880's style:
|Birthday Card 1880 Banners w/Washi Tape|
The washi tape was stuck to a sticky note (plain side, non adhesive) and cut before peeling and laying down onto the card surface.
This card isn't one of my favorites, but I'm learning from what I would have liked to have differently. Having a different stamp for the birthday would have worked better as the greeting is a little too large for the space. I would have liked more washi tape patterns to show on this card front.
The stub cut corners are nice, however they look a little awkward in the area. I may end up putting dashed lines across the bottom to exactly mimic the other card, but I'm afraid of it looking like an afterthought as well.
