May Swap for All Seasons

The theme for this month's Swap for All Seasons was Wedding.  Color was Ivory/White.  I decided to feature black also.  This month I send my swap items to Jayne.  Her favorite card style is vintage.  The image below is from a vintage shower invitation.  I used it on this month's tag.

 Below is the card I designed using a vintage image from the web.  I decided to add lace, flowers and scrabble letters.

We also send de-stash items  in the month's colors.  I decided to include this photo from an album I purchased on Ebay a number of years ago.  I cut the page from the album.  The words "newly wed" are written to the side. Also  names of the bride and groom.   The photo is 1940's.  Thought this would add a special vintage look to the package.

Here are the remaining de-stash items.   Lots of black/white/ivory.

To continue the vintage theme, I decided to use a vintage scarf as my packaging this month.  You can see the before and ready for mailing below.  I did cheat a little because the scarf also has pink in addition to the black and white.  I hope Jayne doesn't mind!

Well, I think you did a lovely job meeting the swap theme. Such beautiful old photos -- such a shame when you find them in shops -- always wonder why they aren't in the hands of family members, but that's the thing -- what is important to us, isn't always important to those around us. Even if they are family. I'm sure Jayne was quite pleased with all her gifts. Great use of the scarf to wrap it all up. Have a wonderful day. Tammy
