Vintage Pin Up Girl

Vintage Pin Up Girl_2

 

Hello! I am so happy you’ve stopped by! Today I have a vintage-inspired CAS card to share with you, featuring the fun Lia Stampz Valentine Girl digi stamp. Seeing this image reminded me of the vintage pin up girls that were very popular, especially during World War II, and I thought it  would be fun to recreate something like that for this card.

I started off by printing the digi stamp onto some white cardstock and added some extra details to the image with a black multiliner, such as the fishnet nylons and some extra folds in her outfit. I then colored the girl with my Copic markers and fussy cut the image out.  With some Glossy Accents, I added shine to her shoes, her lipstick, her eyes and also all the black on her outfit.

In my Silhouette Studio (Designer Edition), I created a “love” panel; using the font Nexa Rust Script, I welded the word “love” to a 4 1/4″ by 1 1/2″ rectangle. I then die cut the panel from white cardstock, four times using my Cameo.

Once I layered all the die cut pieces together, I adhered some lace and tied some ribbon around the panel, before adhering it all down to my card base. My A2 card base is dry embossed with the Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts stencil.

Finally, I attached my pin-up girl onto the card with foam tape, and added some glitter enamel hearts above her, to carry in the love theme.

I love how it turned out, and I hope you too have enjoyed! Let me know what you think, and thanks so much for stopping by! :)
