Here was the challenge. I didn't take into account that because of the pointed bottom of the heart, the card won't stand. It flopped over, especially after adding all the elements. So I came up with the idea of using little heart "feet" (spellbinder dies) Works great! For some extra stability, I also glued little 1/2" folded tabs on the inside bottom of the card to make a stand- sorry I forgot to take a pic of this.
The stamps I used (verse, key and cupid postage) are from a Tattered Angels set "Timeless Romance".
The key was stamped in versamark on black cardstock and covered with Wow Platinum embossing glitter. This stuff is so pretty with it's extra bling! Then I fussy cut it, adhered some vintage lace along the edge of the key, and mounted with foam tape on an angle.
Valentine verse is embossed with black EP, cut out and placed on a Spellbinders tag. I also glued on a little pearl heart at the end of the tag.
Cupid postage is also embossed with black EP, coloured with Copic markers, and Red stickles added over the number 14.
Crocheted flower is from Stampin'Up with a silver and pearl brad added to the centre.
I must say, I am pleased with the vintage look of this heart card!
