Hello everyone! Today I want to share a card that I created with the Authentique Solitude Collection. This is a very vintage inspired winter collection.
My card measures 5-1/2×5-1/2 square. I layered one of the design papers onto some ivory cardstock then added another layer of dark grayish green cardstock. I then added this to the frontof my card.
I die cut a doily using a BoBunny Mandala die from the same ivory cardstock. I trimmed out one of the 3×4 cut aparts and layered it onto the same red cardstock as the card base.
I added some flowers from Graphic 45 and Little Birdie crafts to the bottom left corner, along with a bow from some fabulous silk ribbon by May Arts. I had these cute little acorn charms in my stash so I tied them together with some jute string and attached them to the upper left hand corner. I trimmed out the quote from the company branding strip and added it to the bottom of the card front.
I finished off the inside of the card with some more of the design paper.
That’s my card. Have a fabulous week!

To alter the chipboard postage frames I just used some black craft paint to keep it simple. For the flowers I used white craft paint and added some red bling to the centers. The postage frames and doodle frames went really well with this Disney themed mini album.

For the second project I created a fun fold out card. I used the Frontier paper collection by Authentique and some really cute barbed wire frames from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. My aunt owns a ranch and is turning 90 and I thought this would make a really great birthday card for her.
Here’s the front of the card.
A closer look at the cute barbed wire frame.
Here’s the inside of the fold out card. I used some more of the fun barbed wire frames around the vintage images.
Here’s the last foldout and a place for me to write my birthday greeting.
To alter the barbed wire frames I used Distress Stain in walnut stain and vintage photo. Then I applied a dab of Antique Bronze Distress paint around the edges.

Hello everyone. Today I have another project to share with you. A few years back I created a mini album using envelopes. I still get lots of comments on that project so I decided to create a similar style project using the Authentique Frontier Collection.
I received the sample papers from Authentique at Creativation in January. The sticker sheet was just a printed version onto cardstock so I needed to fussy cut those images out. I absolutely love this collection so I ordered the collection kit.
I have an aunt who is having a milestone birthday next year so this collection will be perfect to celebrate with. She also happens to own a ranch.
