Vintage Valentine Card

Have you seen the latest release of Die~Namites Dies
They are so gorgeous and perfect for making Valentine's Cards!!

Today I am sharing a vintage Valentine's card I made
using the Elegant Heart Frame and Love Arrangement Dies.



I started by cutting the Elegant Heart Frame from some Tim Holtz Stencil packaging that hadn't made it's way to the recycle bin...and well now I think I'll hoard the rest for future projects.  Once I cut the die out I sanded it a little to distress it then inked it with Tea Stain Distress Ink.


The vintage photo is from a piece of Tim Holtz paper, this was perfect for a vintage card.  But just think how awesome the Elegant Heart Frame would be on a scrapbook page to frame out a photo of a loved one!!


I added various layers of paper adding a little color to the card.  I cut the Love Arrangement die from a scrap of light pink paper then cut off some of the leafy parts tucking them behind the photo.


A couple of Prima flowers finished it off, now I have a card to give to that special someone in my life!  Thank you for stopping by today, have a wonderful weekend!
