Multi-Dimensional Vintage Valentine’s Day Banner

Happy Friday!!!!

I cannot believe that we are already 3 weeks into the New Year! And I especially cannot believe that I am still finding residual Christmas decor around the house.  I’m hoping I’m not the only one. 🙂

This banner is made up of so many vintage goodies! Vintage flashcards and Bingo cards create the main canvas for all of the texture. I sprayed these Bingo cards with Glimmer Mist to alter the color. Love how they turned out. To add even more dimension, I adhered vintage honeycomb bells to the front and glittered the BINGO letters. Its hard to see in the photos, but these honeycomb bells have that great aged-paper brown tint to them.

And, the fringe you see? That’s also a sprayed Bingo card, cut into narrow strips and fanned out.  A vintage Christmas reflector frames the vintage Valentine seal in the center. And the blue color makes the blue numbers on the Bingo card just pop!

So, here’s a fun thing. In Northern Colorado, we have a town called Loveland, and every Valentine’s Day, you can mail your Valentine’s to their post office and get a special, very cute, seal stamped on your letter. Definitely check it out! You can find more info. on that here:

I hope you have a great weekend, and Happy Creating!
