Mojo Monday Vintage Valentine

This week's sketch is a nice classic one, but I had a vintage postcard idea in mind, so I took the sketch and turned it on its side this time. I've been seeing so many of those easel cards on the web lately that I finally had to try one. I was particularly inspired by my friend DiAnn's beautiful card that she made for me for my birthday recently. (See below, it's gorgeous!)

My card utilizes Close To My Hearts papers from "That's Amore" and a beautiful, yet retired, stamp set aptly named Vintage Valentine. I also used a lace stamp from the set "Lovely Lace" which is currently available. Instructions for an easel card are posted all over the web, but tomorrow when I have more time, I will give the dimensions and cutting instructions for the one I did here. It's surprisingly easy.

And here's DiAnn's beautiful card...


  1. It's so beautiful....of course....everything you do is just perfect!
    Forgot to tell you that my jammies arrived! wooHOOO!!!

  2. Lovely Vintage card! I've always had a hard time making vintage ones, but you do it so well!

  3. Oh wow!!! This is really beautiful!!! I love the vintage look and you did an awesome job on your easel card! I have to try one. So many are making them and they are really cool! I'm in love with the lace set! Thanks for visiting my blog... I'm so glad to have found yours!
