Vintage-Style Sweetheart Card

T.G.I.F - Oh how I love making the vintage-style cards. It is so fun to find and place all the little embellishments. These vintage images use butterflies often, and they are one of my favorites. Great colors and just love what they represent - change.

So I put this card together last night. It is a card that I can use for many occasion, birthday, anniversary, even a wedding card, I would think. Not traditional, but I think it would still work. Just an overall great Sweetheart card.

So here it is:

I don't usually go with the big floral embellishments, because they are so hard to fit into an envelope. But I figured this could be a card you could hand to someone or use with a special gift. 

I am so pleased with it, I may try to make another. If I do, I will certainly share.
Well I hope you have a great day and a great weekend!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:


  1. A stunning mixed media creation.

  2. Monica, I can't thank you enough for your kind comments and for signing up on my blog as a Follower. I go through the blogs of my Followers to see their newest works of art and when I saw this card, I knew I had to follow you. I love collage work but have so much trouble with it. I'm hoping to get some tips and tricks from looking at your cards. You're so talented at it and these roses are beautiful on this card. To solve the problem with the "fluffy-ness" of a card that doesn't fit in an envelope, my blog has a link on the right side to where I buy my 1" deep boxes for cards that are fancy and need to be mailed. The cards themselves are a wonderful gift but then enclosing a little gift card, or a package of rhinestones or something else, gives the person opening the package a real package to open. :) I love your blog and have gone through the past few cards you've made. I love your style!! Hugs, Gail

  3. I am with you on the floral arrangements and my design team card was a bit of a stretch for me, but I love the results.
    That said, your card is gorgeous. Your "extras" are not over the top. We at Simply Create Too thank you for playing along with our challenge no. 64, The Sentiment is Your Highlight and hope you'll join us again soon.
