A happy Valentine's Day to you! To celebrate the day, I thought a love themed card was in order! This simple card isn't specific to Valentine's Day however. With only LOVE as the sentiment, it could easily be used as a wedding card, an anniversary card, or for anything else you can think of.

Following on from yesterday's post showcasing the new January release, today's card uses Distress Stain and some of the new papers, specifically Bygone Era (5224), which has to be one of my favourites! Here, I've used both sides of the paper. The middle scalloped strip, and the sentiment piece were punched using Vanilla cardstock, then tinted using Old Paper Distress Stain (TDW31093). The Distress Stain makes the Vanilla cardstock look a little more antique than it actually is, without changing the colour too much.

I hope you like today's card, and enjoy your day, whatever you may be doing!


  1. Very classy design. Did you make the flower with punches and a brad, or is it a factory made embellishment?

  2. Thank you Arnoldo! I made the flower using the same papers as on the card, and punches and a brad.
