Vintage Valentine #2

Today I've got another fun Vintage Valentine for you. We'll be using many of the same items from yesterday with the addition of a few buttons, a bit of bakers twine and a metal rimmed tag.  You will also need the large heart pattern as well as another 4" Heart Lace Doily or the medium heart that I shared on post Vintage Valentine #1.

Vintage Valentine #2 - Buttons, Bows & Tags 002

Supplies:

Large & Medium Heart Patterns
     (Note: 4" Heart Lace Doily may be substituted for Medium Heart)
Buttons
Cardstock
Rubber Stamps - Ink Stained Roni
     (Note: these stamps are from February's Get Inked Kit - shhhhh!!)
Distress Ink
Ink Blending Tool
Printed Tape - Making Memories  (This is similar to TH Tissue Tape)
Vintage Sheet Music
Red & White Bakers Twine
Metal Rim Tag
Silver German Glass Glitter

Instructions:

1. Stamp vintage flourish in all four corners of a 4x5" piece of cardstock.

2. Ink the entire piece of cardstock with the IBT and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.

3. Affix this piece of stamped cardstock to the top of a 5x7 card base.

4. Tear the vintage sheet music into 2 - 3" pieces.  Attach these pieces to the lower section of your card using your favorite glue. 

5. Use the IBT  and more Victorian Velvet DI to highlight the outer and torn edges of the sheet music.

6. Trace and cut out the large heart from white cardstock.  Ink the edges using the IBT & VV DI.  Attach it to the card.

7. Use a circular motion to apply a thick glue to the heart and cover with silver German Glass Glitter.  Set the card aside to dry.

8. Stamp sentiment in the center of the metal rimmed tag.  Ink with more Victorian Velvet DI.

9. Create a ruffled circle from the printed tape.  You can create the ruffled circle by gathering the tape on one side as shown in the photo.  I like to do this on my non-stick craft mat so I can easily peel the ruffled circle off and use it where desired without harming the circle.  Use the tag as a guide to determine how large to create the circle.  I used approx. 12-14" of tape for this ruffle.

10. Once you have finished the ruffled circle, carefully peel it off the mat and affix it to the back of the tag.

11.  Trace & trim a medium sized heart from desired color of cardstock or pattern paper OR use a 4" Heart Lace Doily.  Glue it to the center of the large heart on the card.

12.  Mount the tag in the center of the doily and add a bow and buttons to finish off the card.
