I've used this fantastic rubberstamp image called Be My Valentine designed by Elisabeth Bell for Sweet Pea Stamps. You can find this lovely young boy holding his handmade heart at the Sweet Pea Stamps online store here. Does he have a pretty little school-mate in mind that he'd like to be his valentine? Will he give it to his mother to express his love for her?
This pic shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image. I used my handy Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up a Stampin' Up! Be Mine! stamp from their older Have a Heart Set to fit perfectly inside of this little guy's heart.
My Martha Stewart's Punch Around the Page eyelet lace edge and corner set decorated my card front with a delicate edge. A very old Fiskars hand held heart punch provided mini hearts to place around my lacey edge. A Sizzlits vintage photo corner adorns one corner of my card front. Layers of Bo Bunny's Timepiece Collection keys patterned paper support my vintage theme. A bit of Offray brown gingham ribbon provides a border and bow where a Janlynn Corp Steampunk Medium Key Charm hangs from a Making Memories jump ring. A few handmade accent daisies made from Punch Bunch punches form a bouquet on top of my bow.
Here's a view of the front of my completed card showing my use of Sweet Pea Stamps' Be My Valentine, as designed by Elisabeth Bell, with a vintage theme . . .
The base of my card, decorated to match the front, includes a handmade chrysanthemum with several oak leaves to hold my card front in place for display . . .
This pic shows how my twisted easel card looks when completely open and ready for display . . .
