This was a Valentine's card I made for my husband years ago. I used to love making the large Victorian style with lots of cupids, lace and flowers. Later I made more modern cards, but I think I'll go back to the old style again, especially since I have the computer to help me with images.
The base paper was dull purple velour, I wonder if this paper is still available. The gold rectangle frame was taken from a large Christmas card, and the lace was sprayed with gold paint - it's much duller now. I cut out most of the flowers and cupids from cards and magazines except for the center cupid and heart - that was a small card. I made spring coils from gold wire and epoxied them to the pieces for a 3d layered effect. Now there are all kinds of goodies in the scrapbook stores I could use.
