Lilly Pulitzer Trash to Treasure Valentine’s Day Card

lilly-scraps-valentine

Do you remember I cut up the Lilly Pulitzer advertisement to use for cards? (Lilly Pulitzer Trash to Treasure post)

Well, here is a piece from the advertisement used for a Valentine’s Day card.

I embossed a piece of Razzle Berry paper with the Provo Craft Heart Blocks embossing folder, then die cut a heart from the embossed paper.

Oh, SNAP! I didn’t even notice that we had a Friday the 13th in January until I scheduled this to post. Be careful out there!   😉

Supplies: Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Lilly Pulitzer ad, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, PopTone Razzle Berry, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, organdy ribbon – Offray.
