LISTEN UP - a FREEBIE, vintage gramophone silhouette for YOU!

Moving right along with new creations for my upcoming craft sales I’m going with whatever hits my brain at any particular moment.

I got it in my head I wanted a vintage gramophone for a card design.  I located a nice gramophone silhouette at an online store but it was for personal use only and I need it to be on cards that I’m selling so I had to go hunt down my own photo on the internet, bring it into my vector program and trace and tweak it.  So I figure, if I’m going through all this work it might be a blessing to YOU too.  I’m putting this out here as a personal use element but if you would like to use it for craft sales or commercial, you just need to contact me and we can discuss that. 

I was tickled that my sister Nina said she’d also give my file a “test run” so we are both posting today so check her version out HERE. 


I wanted this to be suitable for masculine or feminine so i felt the canvas background is masculine, yet the lace softens it.  I made a batch of four and I already have one picked out for someone dear to me and I went ahead and added some stamped flowers on the top left and again bottom right.


And I love to get my hands on a vintage typewriter and tap out my greetings.  I put these on a nice hand-made paper.
