A Valentine From Start to Finish

Here I go again with the pink and blue. This time the pink is Raspberry Fizz from Papertrey Ink, a striking hot pink shade. The patterned paper is from a collection from Stampin' Up.

Since my vintage image takes up most of the front of this card and the patterns I chose are a bit busy, I felt I would be cluttering the design if I tried to squeeze in a sentiment. Normally, I always try to include a sentiment and leave the inside of the card blank. I mostly do this for my Etsy shop customers who prefer to personalize the cards with their own unique message. But this time I decided to switch things up a bit, since I couldn't fit the sentiment on the front, and include one on the inside. It also gave me a chance to use Papertrey Ink's set Heartfelt Sentiments, a set with some truly moving and inspiring sentiment stamps.

I hope you enjoy,
