Vintage collaged hearts Valentine's cards
For my first card, I layered the colour printed image of the collaged heart over a kraft scalloped oval (Nestibilities). I embossed a brown layer with a distressed line embossing folder. I added a red gros grain ribbon on that layer to which I had already added three ivory sequins with gold mini brads. I added 3D foam tape to the back of my focal element and mounted it over the ribbon. I added a layered punchie greeting to the lower right hand side.
For my third card, I added a piece of red floral decorative paper to the top portion of my brown card front and then embossed the bottom edge with a lace border punch (SU). I added a strip of red cardstock to visually combine the two then glued my layered focal element over that lining up the scallops. I added a little laser printed greeting over the red strip. It still needed a bit of something so I added clear rhinestones to the scallops on the focal element! That added an extra bit of attention to my focal element. Done!
So I have three more cards to add to my stash for Valentine's!!! It was fun to use some common elements on different cards!! Looking back I could have made at least one of these a portrait card. Next time!!
