I couldn't wait to play with the Vintage Train Tickets so I made this sweet card. I attached everything using Incredi-sheets which worked great especially on the thin vintage paper. The little hearts were created using the Small Heart Background Stencil. I quickly colored them in using a pink Copic marker and then outlined them while the stencil was still in place using a fine black Sharpie. I also used a stamped Vial Label.

The flower is my favorite part, created from scratch using vintage dress pattern tissue. I simply cut out circles in various sizes, stacking them large to small. I then used my Tiny Attacher Stapler and stapled them in the center (so quick and easy!). Next I added some flat back pearls to cover the staple and then crinkled the entire thing. I sprayed it lightly with Silver Glimmer Mist to give it a bit of shine, and then finally attached it to my card with a small square of Incredi-sheet. So easy and so cute. It's also very lightweight, which is nice for the card. Oh, and see the little star on the Train Ticket? It was already punched like that. Sweet!
