Thank you card set from Peggy Loves Vintage

Hi everyone! If you were lucky enough to have a three day weekend, I sure hope you enjoyed yours as much as I did mine! The weather was perfect for September. Now it's time to go back to work. UGH! This is one of the projects I was able to complete during my weekend. It went together so quickly! All the cards I make with the vintage images from Peggy Loves Vintage are so quick and easy. And I think the images are just too cute to resist!

This set was made by just printing out the Darling Little Boys 2 Cutouts (they're on page five right now). I just trimmed them out of the sheet and mounted them on a scalloped frame from my Nesties.

I cut various stars out with my Cricut from the George cartridge, inked up the edges and used one of those dollar stamps from Michael's on the larger star. For the smaller stars, I just tied a ribbon with some twine from PTI.


I made them all tent topper cards. I just think these images lend themselves so well to tent toppers. All you have to do is cut a sheet of cardstock to 8 1/2" x 4 1/4", then fold in half so it measures 4 1/4" square. Then mount your image to the top if the card so the final card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Easy peasy!

The DP is from 3 Bugs in a rug, and the cardstock is Bazzill. I made the scalloped edge with my Fiskars border punch. I also took a jewelry box and decorated it to hold the set of cards. They fit in there perfectly and I think it makes for a very nice presentation.

That's if for today! Please be sure and visit Peggy Loves Vintage. She's putting up all her holiday cd's and cutouts, and has a HUGE assortment to choose from!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!
