A Rustic Valentine

This is a card that I made for a Valentine's Day swap.  I used white cardstock from Recollections and inked the edges with Antique Linen. The sentiment is from the Tiny Wishes set from Stampin Up.

I ran the kraft paper (PTI) through my Cuttlebug with a cool folder from Stampin Up called Square Lattice.  I saw my demonstrator use it on one of her cards and I had to have it, of course.  I think it made the kraft paper look like burlap, which was a really nice effect.  I am going to use it again like this.

The frame is from the Holiday Frames & Tags Cricut cartridge.  The pretty pink paper is also from Stampin Up.  I laced through some sheer ribbon and stamped an image of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth.  The stamp is from the Jane Austen collection from Papertrey Ink.  I love this stamp set.  Pride and Prejudice reminds me of my wonderful hubby.

I am entering this card in the Fantabulous (gotta love that word:) Cricut Challenge Blog.  Be My Valentine.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice, 1811


  1. THis is so pretty, I really like the way you laced the ribbon through!

  2. This is so pretty and I love the silhouette. TFS

  3. Nicely done. I like layering and the non traditional Valentines Day colors. The blue ribbon really makes it pop.

  4. Love, love, love this!! I can just imagine what they are saying to each other. Most likely he's telling her he loves her most ardently. :)

  5. I saw your profile where you said you are married to your own Mr. Darcy and that is what this card reminds me of! So Romantic and Pretty! LOVE it!
