Valentine Cards


I am in a pink and red mood lately, and the Valentine cards I made this year reflect that.  I have a new package of vellum I have not used before, and I thought I’d give it a try.  I got out pink card stock, red stamp pads, and a page of red suede paper. The heart cut outs have a nice textured finish, but it doesn’t show up well in photographs.

I stamped a pretty rose on the pink paper, and a greeting on the vellum.

Punch two holes at the top, and thread a red ribbon through the holes, tying a bow to hold the layers together.

Recycling elements from other cards gives more interest to flat papers.  I mounted the recycled cut-outs on burgundy card stock.

This one is for my friend who likes to mountain bike in warmer weather.
