Retro Valentines

When I think of Valentine’s Day, I always think of retro images. The artwork from the 40s, 50s and even the 60s was always so vibrant and playful, and I’m sure, we’re just as fun to pass out as to receive!

This typewriter valentine just makes me smile, and looks super cute adhered to a vintage Bingo card from the Vintage Bingo Card Assortment. Adhesive pop dots lift it up and a bit of Christmas Red Stickles adds some bling!

And, just for you, here’s a copy of that sweet valentine! Click on the above photo and print it out on cardstock to create your own retro valentine! Would love to hear about what you create with it!

I’m still on my “pocket kick. ” I just so love the contrast of wax/parchment paper and cardstock. Its so delicate looking, and of course, vintage! For this pocket, I sewed another vintage bingo card to the front, and adhered a retro valentine to that. Then, the fun part-trimming with foil hearts, ribbons and more Stickles! These little tags will slide right in-what a fun way to create a little message for someone you care about! Vintage tickets and Vintage Valentine Seals trim them nicely!

Be sure to check out the Valentine Store! There, you will find authentic retro valentines, and all sorts of vintage embellishments to make your Valentine’s Day projects one-of-a-kind!

Have a super day!
