With Love!

Tis the month of love, hearts, flowers, lace and chocolate.  So this week at Sweet Sassy Diva we are creating Old Fashion Valentines.  This is my finished valentine which is a 5 x 7 card made using a  Valentine stack from K and Company I found at Michaels.  Love the vintage paper and embellishments.  
 
For the frame on the front I used Elegant Edges page 41 and cut 1 of the  frame and 1 of the shadow for the frame. I used my Gypsy and cut it out at 5" x 5.76.  
Here are the pieces cut out.  I kept the center cuts to use also. 
The edges are inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I used a makeup sponge to get into edges. 
I then cut the piece for the bottom of the frame and pop dotted the frame shadow. 
I also pop dotted the top frame layer. I used a vintage valentine from the stack which was distressed with the same Holtz  Tea Dye Ink.  
Then it is time to embellish.  I used seam binding sprayed with Vintage Rose Glimmer Mist, a crocheted flower from $1 bin at Michaels and a heart and dove from the K and Company embellishment bag.  I added diamond Stickles to the heart.  
For the inside I used another piece of the heart paper. The oval cut and tiny hearts  are  from the front frame.
The inside is inked also and another embellishment from K and Company was added.  
This was all glued to Kraft paper and the corners were rounded.  
I hope you will come back all week to  see what the other Sweet Sassy Diva Designers have created.
