A little vintage Valentine's Day romance

Winter is in full swing here in the US and as the joyful December Christmas and other holiday decorations are coming down it's time to look ahead.  Valentine's Day is right around the corner and love is in the air over at Altered Pages!  Today I have a card to share that will be sure to please your honey.


The color scheme makes this card suitable for a man or a woman and is super easy to make.  Start with the Young Lovers collage and punch or cut out the kissing couple into a circle shape.  I have a scalloped die set, but concentric circles would be just as pretty for the matting.  Ink the edges of your picture to soften the edges a little.


The card elements were made from three sheets of the Graphic 45 Artisan Style paper pad.  These papers are two sided and contain the same two colors on each sheet so they coordinate perfectly with one another.  A heart was cut out of the main panel, allowing the bottom layer of cardstock to show through.  (And leaving me a beautiful embellishment to use on another card!)


The tan floral paper used for the bottom circle layer was also used to stamp the Mailbox Muse dragonfly, which was cut out and mounted at the edge of the heart-shaped hole.  Three black gems give the card a touch of sparkle.  There is still plenty of room to write or stamp an "I love you" inside the heart.



Now, you just need to plan the rest of your romantic evening...

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you'll come back again real soon.  Until then...Happy Crafting!
