Hey there my lovelies! Can you believe it's almost Christmas?! Yep...just a few more days, in fact...and then New Years...and THEN...Valentines Day!! hehehe! Well, I decided to get started on my Valentine's cards!! I know, I know...I am the QUEEN of PROCRASTINATION! But...I tell ya, I'm just about ready to be done with Christmas cards...at least for a little while anyway! hehehe!! Sooooo...are ya ready? Ta daaaaaa...here's my first Valentine for 2012!
Isn't this just the most perfect image for a Valentine's Day card?! This stamp is called "Hold on to My Heart" and is part of the Home Grown collection of Sugar Nellie stamps. You can find it HERE at Funky Kits. Here's a side view...
I layered lots of the DPs...mostly because I just couldn't decide which of the gorgeous patterns to choose! So...I chose several!!! LOL!! I then sponged all the edges with Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" to give them a bit of an "old world" feel.
Here's my card "recipe"...
Cardstock: Very Vanilla
DPs: Lost & Found (My Mind's Eye)
Lace, crown pins, & roses: Wild Orchid Crafts
Key, brad, & medallion: Bo Bunny Trinkets
I decided to keep the inside pretty simple...just layering DPs...and stamped the "I love you" sentiment with black ink using a fun little stamp that I found in my stash! Ya just gotta love the stash, don'tcha?! hehe!
