Using bits and pieces, I wanted to create fabulous handmade Valentine’s Day Cards.
My mom is in a nursing home and I like to send her a card a week so I will be sending these to her every few days leading up to Valentine’s Day.

For this 1st one, I cut out this gypsy from the Art Wall paper and painted the ruffled areas of her costume with Grandma’s House. I spritzed my little puffy wings with Wedding Pink and added a flowered trim down the side. I layered paper, then cheesecloth, then a fussy cut rose from the Stash Paque. I added some sparkle with a spritz of Pearl.

This one has a little industrial flare to it: printed canvas scrap, Roses R Red painted around the edges, and a sentiment cut from the Stash Paque.

This gypsy was sized down from the Old Window paper. I painted some Pearl over the areas of her headdress and cut out some pieces from the Go & Be paper, then added a little crystal embellishment.

With another sized gypsy for a backdrop, I added a piece of canvas trim down the side with a couple red dots and used foam squares to mount a fussy cut Valentine’s sentiment from the Go and Be paper.
