Valentine’s Day is nearing, my friends! Here are a few from the collection of 2013 Valentine Day cards – more designs will be debuting throughout the week. This year I decided to creative and take collage to a new level with the aid of my sewing machine. I stuck with a few constants – selections from old books, red thread, recycled papers, and stamps.
Some cards were randomly created, while others were made specifically for a certain person. This one is for a friend here in NC. The blue heart is the paper from the inside of the envelope that the SECU statements come in. NC friends, you are welcome to bring these to me or send them my way. I have plenty of other uses for these envelopes.
This one is covered in x and o stamps and overlaid with a selection from one of the books. One of the old books I was cutting up is on advertising, so it has some different text and image selections. This heart shape was a random find in an art drawer – something from Valentine’s in years past, I guess.
In this digital age, will you send or give a real Valentine card this year? If you are interested in any of my handmade cards, I am always willing to sell them. Send me a message, if interested.
