Friday- V is for... Winner is Barry

Moderator: Golda

What a wonderful crop we have so far. Can't you just feel the love? :D
My "V" challenge is to make a Valentine card. If it also has a vintage feeling to it... you get two entrees.
You can use stamps, clip art, paper products, embellishments, lace, ribbon, doilies… anything that creates a vintage feeling.
I've provided two examples.
The first features an image of a vintage typewriter [from a Stampin' Up set named TapTapTap.]
The other includes an antique key charm that one of you sent me some time ago in a prize packet. I used the key to make a butterfly [the idea was found on Pinterest.] Isn't it wonderful?

I notice that the old Valentine's Day cards had lots of blues and reds combo so that is what I went with...

Terrie - I love the faded red and blue...it looks like someone had treasured it for a long time!

Well the snow has started again...only 1/2 inch in the last 4 hours but it's now sticking and falling heavily. Katrina had a 1/2 day at school (for teacher training) so we are in front of the fire...she's doing Science homework and I'm making cards!

After making the large Valentine's cards, I made 18 black and white cards...one will be a Valentine but the rest are the beings of a wedding present...

Now, I think it's time for a bowl of soup, a book, and the recliner next to the picture window and watch the world go by!

Terrie, your card is wonderful. I love that you looked at old ones and modeled it after what you saw! Such a smart way to do it.

Trudi, those are beautiful! Enjoy your snow.

While looking through my stamps, I came up with several ideas for this challenge. This is the first one I did.

Terrie, that's an unusual combo but works so well!

Trudi, gosh, you've been busy!

Sweet card Golda!
