Valentine Week Vintage Heart – by Deb Saaranen

Today Deb shows us a lovely vintage Valentine that truly does look like it was from another era. It is a simple heart shape with a pleated crepe paper surround. As with typical vintage Valentines of this type, you write on the back of the Valentine. Deb used a gorgeous NEW paper collection by Kaisercraft called Ma Cherie. Take a look:


I {{{ADORE}}} this  yummy Valentine with such vintage flair!

Applying a plain heart to the back of the card sandwiches the crepe paper in between and gives you a clean writing surface.

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.

 This crepe paper is not like those inexpensive rolls you can buy in the stores. It is much thicker and has a bit of a stretch to it, making it super easy to work with.

This crepe paper makes into beautiful flowers, too!
