Vintage Tapestry Script


This vintage style Valentine was created for my dear friend Veronica.  On a piece of Shimmery White paper I stamped the Hero Arts Tapestry Script Background in Brilliance Pearlescent Beige.  Since the image is so pretty I didn't want to cover it all up!

The heart was cut from Blushing Bride paper with the center from Shimmery White, which I sponged in beige ink.  The flourish and heart border were done the same way.


Friend was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder on a Spellbinders tag cut from Shimmery White paper.  Both the key and tag were hung from gold cording with a piece of light pink seam binding.  Kaiser pearls in blush were added to the flourish.  Before mounting everything I used an edge distresser and sponged the edges with ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown.


The inside sentiment by PSX was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder and a heat gun.  The row of hearts at the bottom was cut from Blushing Bride paper using the new Memory Box Heart Chain Border die.

Beautiful Card!! It's very vintage yet very elegant. I think I've seen the metal keys used on other cards you've posted and I really like those. I may have to see if I can find those online. I'm 90 miles from the nearest craft store. lol Lovely as always Donna!!
