Handmade Valentine Card a Day- Day 5

Welcome to day 5 of our handmade Valentine Card a Day posts! We made this littleladyvalentine1.JPGvintage-look Valentine using bits of found ephemera. Please read on for details.

We started with the back of a post card. This particular one came in a pack of vintage bits and pieces of ephemera from DCM, I believe. The edges were inked using Ranger’s Tim Holtz Distressing Tea Dye ink. To make it more sturdy, we used adhesive to attach a piece of patterned paper to the back.

Another piece of patterned paper was punched using a square scalloped punch from Marvy. This punch out was glued to the top left portion of the post card.

The wing rubon is from Hambly. The ‘little lady’ was a decoration from an old piece of writing paper I had lying around for ages. These were also layered on the post card.

A border stamp was put on the bottom right. littleladyvalentine2.JPGWe used our own designed acrylic journaling stamp to hand print the sentiment on.

Ranger’s “Stickles” were used for a bit of detailing here and there.

Finally, the whole card was sprayed lightly with alcohol ink.

Tune in tomorrow for our Day 6 card!
