There's nothing like the look of vintage Valentine cards to bring your heart and mind to a place of simpler times.
When I saw this mood board from Double D Challenges, I was inspired by the hot air balloons as well as the Valentine balloons so here's what I came up with:
I pulled out some printed papers from My Mind's Eye that I'd been hoarding and found this sweet hot air balloon paper to use for the background.
I cut the Elizabeth Craft Designs Hot Air Balloon out of some of the coordinating printed paper and laid it over a white die cut doily.
I had some pre-printed die cuts left over from a Spellbinders monthly kit from last year and added the hearts, banner and birds.
I enjoy making these types of cards because they use up a lot of supplies that tend to sit around for a while. I hope you're inspired by my card today and that you will dig into your neglected supplies to create something out of the ordinary.
If you'd like to join in on the fun at Double D Challenges, you could win the Elizabeth Craft Designs Hot Air Balloons dies which is the same die I used to create my card. Happy crafting!
I'll be entering this card into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge
