Vintage Valentine Challenge for The Frilly and Funkie Blog


The Challenge
Time for a new challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog and I'm hosting this time around.  The season of love is just around the corner and for this challenge I want to see vintage valentines in vintage colors like pinks, blues, purples. No bright red please. Show me your vintage side with vintage colors and images. If you need some inspiration, click here to link to a great vintage color palette.

My Vintage Valentine

I've used Stamperia's Precious collection to creat my vintage valentine.  I decided to make a shaker card.  I used white seam binding and dyed it pink to make the bow and it's actually attached to a Graphic 45 square tag that is tucked in behind the front flap.


 The shaker is made with a set of nested circle dies.  I die-cut the love word and put inside the shaker along with some beads.  I used the new 3-D Impresslits Embossing Folders to make the pink scalloped border on the right.   These dies are so awesome as they cut and emboss all at the same time. I used Core'dinations cardstock so that I could lightly sand the embossing to make it stand out. 
 Stamperia papers always include some great cut-aparts.  The envelope on the left is a cut-apart from the Precious collection.  I used removable glue dots to adhere it and I think I'll put  a chocolate in there for my special someone.  On the right, that love stamp is a really old Cuttlebug die and embossing folder.


Here's the tag outside the card. I used a Graphic 45 square tag and die-cut design paper to cover the tag using Graphic 45's square tag die.  I love those dies, they cut the tag just a smidge smaller so that a pretty border is left all around the tag.

  11. Your cards are always so much more Maggi and as ever you've worked magic with these papers. The shaker element on the front is such a wonderful way of making it more interactive and I love the addition of the envelope pocket and hidden tag.
