Plum Pretty Valentine Card...

Hey Ya'll,
This last week, I have been playing with a couple of different card shapes than I normally do, and I am also playing with some Vintage Valentine's for inspiration components.
 The pansy heart shapes were cut with a craft knife from a vintage valentine image I found on Google Images.  The key is just a metal finding we had is some of the beaded jewelry stash.  Hee! Hee!  The white paper in the center behind the ribbon is hand made paper torn with a tearing ruler.  This is a basic half letter sized card.  I just folded it in a different way so that there was the decorative edge.  The purple mat on the inside and the cover are cut at the same size.  5 1/4" x 8 1/4".
I used a Martha Stewart Lace punch for the edge.  As unbelievable as this sounds, there is not a single Cricut cut on this card.  I KNOW!  I thought the SAME THING!  Hee! Hee!  WHAT?!?  Oh well, we will just call this a "Green" card.  No electricity was used.  Hee! Hee!  It's very different to what we normally do, but I thought it turned out pretty well.  Thanks so much for visiting today!


  1. I love your "green" purple card. It is so elegant. I love those hearts. Gorgeous as always.
