Vintage Valentine #1

Today's post is this beautiful Vintage Valentine card. I just love the aged look of it, like it's something our grandparents would send and receive back in the day. Vintage is another style of paper crafting and it has been very popular lately. This style usually has lots of layering and distressing techniques to make the product look old-fashioned or obsolete. I really like making Vintage style cards, although I must admit that it does take more time than other styles.
