The Everything ABC Blog-Hop Letter V

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter "V" This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as their "V" element will be featured in their post.

My "V" attempt for this card was a Victorian Vintage Valentine.  I do believe I achieved  a Valentine card with some vintage influence; though, the Victorian label is lost in translation.  With smudges of Tulip inking edges, the warn  look on the the butterfly stamp plus the filigree heart, with a touch of cursive writing, a very slight vintage look is evolving. 

  This card was created using the  Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  Page 35,  I used the Pop-up card with the arrow and heart icon plus the "I love you" from the Artist Cricut Cart.  Z3017 page 71.  The red card base was cut from a borrowed crepe textured red paper and I used CTMH White daisy and the new Pixie pink card-stock.  On the inside of the card for the arrow, heart and "I love you" message, I used the new pink glitter paper z1922.  On the front of the card, the Butterfly was stamped twice on Pixie Pink and cut out to layer it.  The cut shape the image is stamped on was from Artiste page 61 Accent 3.  Both the heart and the entire butterfly accent were mounted with the 3-D foam tape. On the heart accent piece, I added two sets of red sparkles.  These are retired, though I could have used the clear sparkles and colored them with our new markers.  The last little touch was the addition of liquid class accents on the little hearts around the stamped butterfly.
