Many times, I’ve been asked, how do you decide on a color palette. Well, this time, I searched Pinterest for shabby chic images. Because I wanted to have, what I’ll refer to as a soft dusty palette, I knew I wanted a little blue in there somewhere. Pool Party was that perfect shade.

Now that I had a color palette, I just started pulling die sets from my stash. I needed a flower that would make a statement, but wouldn’t steal the show. The Magnolia Memory die set has a number of images you can combine to make your very own handmade flowers.

By cutting two of the large and one of each of the smaller images, from Whisper White cardstock, my flower started to take shape. Inking it lightly in Pool Party added the vintage look.

After choosing two patterns from the In Good Taste DSP, I roughed up the edges with the blade of my paper snips. I love that look.

My vintage magnolia card really started to come together when I began adding all the pretties. Incorporating bits of linen thread, pearls and Champagne Shimmer Mist ticked all my vintage style boxes.
