Lili Of the Valley - Vintage Boys #1

Hi everyone

How is everyone doing? Well I celebrated my 60th birthday since I last posted, and thanks to my daughter and husband I had an absolutely fabulous day - full of surprises, love and laughter. The day wasn't totally perfect as my daughter, who is still protecting herself at home couldn't share the day with us in person. FYI I haven't seen her in person for almost a year and a half due to the pandemic. Anyhow, but hopefully that will change very soon....fingers crossed. :)

Right that's the 'catch up' stuff done. Lol 

So today I'm sharing a sneaky peak of one of the new Lili Of The Valley vintage boys, they are all just so adorable. For my card I have used one of the Vintage Boy Simply Prints called 'Wallpaper Paste', one of the 'Dusky Watercolour' papers and a sentiment from the 'Grunge Stamp' set. All the new digi stamps are also available as pre-coloured versions in Simply prints PDF's. The whole collection - Simply Prints, digi stamps, papers and sentiments all launch in the LOTV Etsy shop on Monday (17th March).

I hope you like it. (This card is for sale - please email me).

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
To start with I printed the Simply Print vintage boy image onto 300gsm white card and trimmed it down to fit my 5" x 7" black card blank whilst leaving a slim border around the edge. I used a fancy edge die on the bottom section, then glued funky foam onto the back. The digital paper was taken into my graphics program where I placed the sentiment over the top. The paper was printed straight onto smooth printer paper and trimmed it down to match the width of the card topper. The paper was glued to the card front first, and the topper piece was glued over the top of that. To finish the card I added a few glossy dots on both the top and bottom.
