Vintage-y Love :)

Another Valentine card for today, a shadow box card with a vintage color scheme. This card technique and vintage style is my first time try. Hope you like it.

White, cream, black, brown, light mint green,kraft are the shades i have played with.
Made a shadow box with cream CS and mint green pp whose edges are distressed with momento rich cocoa are added on the outer frame. A square frame is cut from pattern paper which has music notes, is added as inner panel and to it added a heart diecut from same pp, is with stamped florishes and its edges too sponged with rich cocoa.

All the flowers are handmade. Florishes, roses, mum, are diecut from various dies  and distressed and dry embossed to make these. To add bit interest to the CLD tropical flourish, added a single petal flower with stryofoam ball centres. Big roses are made from Gardenia strips and small roses bunch are made from Memory box fancy blossoms and of course, single petal flowers too. Big bloom is from CLD sunflower die. Leaves are from olive branches.

Sentiment too is stamped on music note pp diecut, which i hope goes well with the sentiment saying :)
A small CLD butterfly and few pearls, rhinestones are added as final touch.

Hope you all like it...Your comments and visits are much appreciated.

Valentine Card

A valentine card for the valentine month. Just 4 days away for my Wedding Anniversary and so this quick card with roses again :)

Made an easel card with roses and fluorishes. The card front has a pale pink pp whose edges are distressed and on it matted another red digi freebie. The lattice is made from tessatina border die and its added to the circle die and made as a focal point.

Cheery lynn gardenia strip die is used to make roses and tropical florishes diecuts are added in different tones. Red florish diecut and paper pieced butterfly are from DCWV Mariposa collection.

MS double arches border punch is used to create a lace with the same pink pp from Zephyr paper pad and added just below the focal lattice.

Sentiment is stamped on the venetian label diecut and placed on a pp from Simple stories paperpad and this acts as a stopper showcasing the roses on card front :) Few pearls for final touch.

Hope you like it !!
