So, to start off my blog post, I decided to do a vintage inspired birthday card to match my vintage suitcase. This fun suitcase/matchbox is big enough to hold a whole set of cards and envelopes!Stampin Up, Vintage, Timeless Textures, Butterfly Basics, Traveler

I used 3 different stamp sets Butterfly Basics, Timeless Textures, and The Traveler. I used my markers to ink up the flowers in sweet sugarplum and the leaves and stems in Old Olive. the background is a mix of crumb cake and pink pirouette.Stampin Up, Vintage, Timeless Textures, Butterfly Basics, TravelerI used a suitcase on the inside to tie in the project that you’ll see in a minute!Stampin Up, Vintage, Timeless Textures, Butterfly Basics, Traveler

There is a complete supply list at the bottom of this post! Now, for my personal favorite part of this hop!  I made a small travel suitcase!Stampin Up, Vintage, 3D, suitcase, matchbox

TA-DA!!! 😀 I just love how this turned out! I really think the buckle adds the perfect accent to the suitcase! Here’s another vantage point.Stampin Up, Vintage, 3D, suitcase, matchbox

I’m really super excited at how this turned out. I used my early espresso markers to make fake holes for the buckle and handle. I sponged all the pink pirouette edges with crumb cake to make it appear more vintage too.Stampin Up, Vintage, Timeless Textures, Butterfly Basics, Traveler, 3D, suitcase, matchbox

The inside has the flower pink pirouette background designer series paper with all the edges sponged with crumb cake too.Stampin Up, Vintage, Timeless Textures, Butterfly Basics, Traveler, 3D, suitcase, matchbox

I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects, leave me a comment to let me know what you like best!

Dimensions for the suitcase base are 8 3/4″ x 7 1/2″ scored at 1 1/2″ on all four sides, the suitcase lid is 8 7/8″ x 7 5/8″ scored at 1 1/2″ on all four sides. The belts are made from matting a 3/8″ wide pink pirouette strip with a 1/2″ early espresso strip. I used a 2″circle punch to make the rounded corner protectors. 🙂Stampin Up, Vintage, Timeless Textures, Butterfly Basics, Traveler, 3D, suitcase, matchbox
