Vintage Valentine's Day card

Happy Friday!

One more day until Valentine's Day!  What are you doing to celebrate the day?  My husband and I are doing something very romantic: we are looking at a new front door for the house.  LOL.  We have had problems with the door since we moved in- the door has always been tricky to open.  Well, now it is stuck in the frame.  We cannot open it no matter how we try!  Thankfully we were inside the house when the door decided to stick...not outside with no house keys!  As a joke I should have made a Valentine's Day card for my husband and glued the edges so that he could not open it.  :)
This card does open...as a tent fold card.  The ivory base was die cut from Spellbinders' Exquisite Labels Eleven.  Maroon paper was dry embossed and die cut with Spellbinders' Labels Seventeen.   Next, ivory paper was die cut using Labels 39.  A shimmery piece of metallic maroon paper was die cut using Twisted Metal Tags and Accents and placed over the vintage Graphic 45 image from the Sweet Sentiments paper collection.  Stickles was applied to the wings and flowers on the image.  The finishing touch was a maroon double bow and gold button.
Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your Friday...and be cautious of sticky doors!  :)
Hugs,
Kathy Jo
