Trio of Valentines


Several co-workers asked me to create some masculine Valentines, so I came up with 3 different cards this morning.  This first card uses the layout for the Retrosketches Challenge #48 and I think I can squeak it by for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge to create a vintage card or project.  The type print of the sentiment (Flourishes' "Just My Type" set) speaks "vintage" to me...along with the white ink sponging on the heart and over the black layer for the chalkboard technique.  The embellishments also have a bit of a retro feel.  I hand doodled some cross stitching along the top of the flags.  Papers are from Echo Park's "Yours Truly" pad.


These next two cards were totally inspired by a gorgeous card by Mary Fish - LOVE her clean lines in her creations!  (my apologies that the link wouldn't work from Pinterest).


The XOXO border is a Die-Namics die by MFT.  Sentiments are from Verve's "Stronger Love" set.

Heading out to work shortly, so need to run...always appreciate your visits and comments!

Wanda, your card for Retro Sketches caught my eye - and I'm so glad it did! Your cards here are gorgeous; you've accomplished your goal to make "guy" cards, but I know anyone and everyone would be thrilled to receive one of your creations. If it's okay with you, I may 'scrap lift' parts of your designs. Inspired? Definitely! Thank you for sharing!
