With the need to make that baby shower card I spoke of yesterday, I went ahead and created another Valentine card. I saw this lovely lady on a sheet of G45 Mon Amour paper and knew I had to use her image on a card. I am partial to black and white, so this collection was a must have for me. I made it into a pocket card so I would have that extra amount of space to work with, and I think I maxed it.
For the florals, I pulled out an older Prima flower and glued some ivory gathered tulle trim to the bottom. I teamed it up with an antique bronze leaf and some other flowers and leaves from I Am Roses.
The "You Are Loved" and tiny heart pieces are from the MA Tags & Pockets and Decorative Chipboard packs. I bought the scalloped edged music paper hearts from an Etsy shop ages ago. It's funny how I can use up some things so fast, and others take me years to do so.
This antique bronze filigree is actually a row of tiny hearts. I topped it with a gold gem from Prima's Holiday Jubilee Say It In Crystals. With this close-up view, you can see that I edged my fussy-cut lady with Walnut Stain Distress ink. My tag is finished with an antique bronze wide eyelet and filigree heart with a seam binding bow that I'm sure Kirsty must have hand-dyed having come from one of her Pixie Dust Paperie kits.
