Good evening! Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. It was so nice here today...warm temps and sunshine.
I worked organizing my cards and doing a little cleanup in my stamp room this afternoon, I have a friend coming to shop for cards tomorrow and wanted to make it as easy for her as possible.
I created this yesterday for a couple of challenges, it has been awhile since I have gotten a card ready for a challenge this quickly. Sugar Creek Hollow is asking for a vintage valentine this week. I love their images and I think you would too, so go by and check them out...they have freebies if you like to try before you buy.
For my card this week I reduced the image "vintage" and copied it several times in a row before printing it out on Stampin' Up Riding Hood Red card stock. I trimmed it to fit my A2 card base of SU black. I also printed out the freebie H+Tag after which I cut only the heart portion out with the Spellbinders scalloped hearts and one size larger in the black card stock. Isn't the striped grosgrain SU riding hood red ribbon just yummy? and I got it in the clearance rack at SU. I tied a tag that was cut in my big shot and then stamped with the flourish from SU's elements of style set. I also used that to decorate the inside...first off stamping to give it more of an aged worn look.
I am also entering this in the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers blog where Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge #40 is to create a valentine. I don't own any of MFP's stamp yet but maybe soon. Sorry to not be using anything from them as I usually like to use the host's product.
Hope you enjoy this and I'll be back tomorrow morning with my card for Paper Cupcakes.
