VINTAGE VALENTINE LOVE CARD featuring the Lots of Love Letterpress Plate...

Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone!

Today I have the Valentine I made for my hubby.  It is a CAS (Clean And Simple) card with a decidedly Vintage feel.  This is the first time I have done a masculine version of Vintage, but I think it turned out okay.  I decided to use the Lots of Love Letterpress Plate again.  It's been so long since I had used it until last week (Blushing Trinkets of Love) and I enjoyed it more than I remembered.

Again I used Classic Ink with the Letterpress Plate because I wanted a very faded look - almost like it was made on a brown paper bag.  I embossed the heart stamp and sentiment with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder and then I lightly sanded some of it off.  Then I used Crumb Cake and Tea Stain to age everything and used markers with the Color Spritzer Tool.  I also used the Cutter Kit to distress the edges of all the pieces.  Hope you enjoy it!

  1. I have always wanted the this letterpress plate, but didn't want to invest in craft inks to use it. Glad to know you can use it with regular inks! Beautiful job - love it!
