I found this great image of St. Valentine and hope you find it inspiring!
This month, I made a Valentine Card and Tag. Both are Vintage Fusion – new and old mixed together in a fresh way.
This Valentine is going to be used very close to home! Shhhhh! Don’t tell! I added patterned paper to a white card base. Then I began the layering fun with laces and ribbons that I had on hand. I punched the butterflies and hearts from the red foil sheet found in the store. I added crackle accents to one of the butterflies for a little more texture. The “for you” sign is from the packaging of Red Twirly Twine (my favorite color). The paper doll and a big sheet of clothes to cut and play with was the perfect base for the Valentine Sentiment. I had so much fun making this Valentine. I hope the recipient will love it as much as I do.
For the tag, I used a Vintage Valentine that I had on hand. If you don’t happen to have a source of vintage valentines, check out this item in the Vintage Street Market Store, Vintage Valentines Reproductions. Other supplies used for this tag were: a large tag, patterned paper, seed beads, vintage laces, a pink sharpie marker, ribbon, flower and stick pins. Isn’t the image adorable?
Also be sure to check out the super fun Valentine Creativity Kit. It has so many great things to play with, to customize Valentines for your own special someone!
Have a Beautiful Valentines Day. You are Special!
