My Vintage Valentine

Welcome to Funky Cards and the "My Vintage Valentine" blog hop hosted by Jessica from KinderStampO.

If you arrived here from Nicole's blog you are in the right place.  If you happened here by chance, you may want to head back to the beginning to Jessica's blog.  Today we are bringing you vintage Valentine ideas.  So sit back and enjoy and hopefully you will be inspired to create a beautiful project of your own:)

I really had to think outside of the box for this.  Vintage is tough for a 16 year old!  Here is the card I designed and created.

I designed this with color in mind.  I wanted to stay away from bright red and pick color combinations.  I saw red and black and swirls when I thought vintage.  I found this paper at Michael's and I already had this stamp.  I thought with two simple hearts I could make an elegant looking card.  I used the Simply Sweet Cricut cartridge to cut two hearts (2.5" and 1.5").  I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the hearts.  I added some black gems and a black bow for the finishing touches!

***Leave me a comment and let me know what you you think of my vintage Valentine card.  If you leave a comment and become a follower I will enter you in my contest for a chance to win a package of my Funky Cards Thank You notes:)***

Now it is time to head over to Jenn's blog to see what this creative Scrappin' Little Turtle has designed for you:)
   
Thanks for stopping by!

  59. Hi, Madison! I think your card is perfect! It feels vintage but not antique if you understand what I mean. It's very sweet and I love that you used darker tones rather than the normal pinks, reds and whites. Great job, 16 yrs old or not! P.S. I played volleyball in high school too! ;o)
