The challenge over at "Do You Stack Up?", is to make a project that looks distressed. For my card, I made a pocket heart. I found the directions at The Crafts Digital Art Center. After cutting it out, I ran it through my Big Shot with the Vintage Embossing Folder. I distressed the edges with my scissors & inked edges & all. For the little card inside the heart, I printed off a Vintage flower Clip Art, from "Free Vintage Clip Art & Cards", located on my sidebar. I cut the flower card out, sanded it with a nail file, sponged & tore some of the edges. Then, I stamped lightly, some fancy handwriting. Ok, I have to tell the truth, I accidentally ordered a stamp in Spanish. And, since I don't know the translation, I thought I had better stamp it LIGHTLY so you couldn't read it. :) I think it works though. Looks like some old cards that I have seen. The diamond embellishment is an old clip earring that I had in my stash, sentiment is from SU!'s "Of The Earth".
I STILL don't have a Valentine to give this to. If you are in need for a card for your Valentine, I have a few I can spare.... :)
