Valentine's Day En Francais

Hello blogging friends,

I have a Valentine's Day card to share with you today.  Do you remember as a kid making homemade Valentine's Day cards to pass out at school and the nostalgic feeling you had?  This is exactly how I felt creating this one.

When it comes to Valentine's Day I always think of something vintage, old, pink and nostalgic.  

I started with a Natural White Linen card base with a layer of Primrose Petals.  The floral paper is by K & Company.  The pocket heart design I saw on SCS and added the pretty gold metal flourish to the bottom of it.  Before folding the paper, I stamped the script background in Versamark and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  Sponging was then done in Distress Antique Linen & Soft Suede.  The inner heart was cut from a Spellbinders Classic Heart #5 die and embossed using a Craft Concepts Budding Vine embossing folder.

A piece of vintage seam binding with a heart brad finish it off!

The inside sentiment was also stamped in VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder.  Distress Walnut Stain was used to stamp the key.

Sending you sweet wishes ...
