My Favorite Style - with a little Amor

Hey everyone, so Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. I need to get my cards mailed today or tomorrow to ensure they arrive on time. But I wanted to take a moment to share with you one of the cards I made this year. This is my favorite style. Being on the design teams, I don't get a lot of opportunity to create cards like this. The images I work with are very "cutesy" and don't always work with this style. I probably should find a challenge that focuses on vintage grunge, that would give me an incentive to regularly create cards such as this one.

The image was a freebie Graphic Fairy, along with the Love Ticket.  The sentiment is from the my set of Clear stamps from Fiskars called Lasting Love Quotes. I have used several from this set for my Valentine cards and they have been working out great. I have had the black flowers in my stash for over 6 months. I am glad I finally pulled them out and used them.

So here is what I used:


  • Recollections - script
  • Tan card stock for base of card
Die Cut
  • La-La Land Crafts Dies - Heart Doily
  • Flowers - Recollections
  • Clock - The Paper Studio - Spare Parts
  • Washi Tape - Butterflies - Recollections
  • Label - Paper Addiction 
  • Stash - Center of flowers
Have a great day!
