Victorian Love


My card today is a little different.  No colored image and that is unusual for me.  It is the first card that I have made using a doily and sticking to a color inspiration from the challenge for Papers and Such Designs.  I had a store bought die-cut in cream with a tan design on it that I decided to use and that is what I placed my doily on.  I used my Circle Hearts Spellbinder Nestabilities Die to cut out a tiny tan dot/cream background paper for the sentiment which is from Digi Doodles.  I used another cream and light tan design paper for the background of the doily and the pre-made die cut.  Then I used a Memory Box Die called Elegant Scrollwork for my flourishes.  I then punched out some small hearts in cream and placed on the flourishes.  The flowers are from my stash and although I know they came from Michael's, I do not remember who made them.

The inside of my card is just as nice, with background paper in beige and tan with the words "I love you" repeated on it.  I used the Spellbinder Die, Circle Hearts to cut out a large die and placed a sentiment from Ginger House, "And they lived happily ever after" on it.  I used 2 of the same flowers as on the front of the card for my embellishments.  Not really a hard card but I sure wanted to add some color.....lol

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  4. Lovely vintage feel to this card. I have a feeling I might have to invest in that memory box die it's really elegant.
