Vintage Valentine Card

Hi Everyone,

Back to treat you with what has to be my favourite card this year so far!
Da Daaaaa….

P1020991

I love the Vintage look and think I really nailed it with this one!

Amazingly enough the only stamped image here is the embossed brown flourish beneath the gold painted frame. The main image is on paper that I bought, it hasn't a brand name on it and I think it came in one of the bulk packs I buy from time to time at my local Sams Warehouse.

Even the inside has been decorated. I used a Nellies Multi-frame die to cut this and the sentiment is embossed in brown and cut out with a scallop spellbinder.

Gold paint was dry brushed all over the place on this card. Swiped around edges and completely covering the chipboard frame and on every flower used!

The flowers were all different colours to start, so I painted them to suit. this is a great tip for just about any embellishment that can be painted. Use it Up by making it the right colour!

Here’s a closer look at the painted flowers on the front.

You can also see the tiny strip of whole pearl ribbon sticking out under the big flower, which goes with the liquid pearls in the centre of the flowers on the inside of the card.

Hope you enjoyed looking at this card – I had a blast making it Smile
