Hand Made Valentine’s Day Cards

Here are a few more examples from my 2013 Valentine’s Day cards.  For this card, I stamped the background with a rubber stamp before sewing paper shapes onto the surface.  At first the faded stamps bothered me, but upon finishing this card, it turned out ok. 

Here is another gem from the old advertising book.  The book is chock full of old advertisements that crack me up.  Who knows why this person is standing inside of a hay stack.

This card is made from layers of torn and cut papers from my old advertising books.  The repetitive red edges of the paper corners is my favorite part about this collage.  I used watered down glue to get a smoother surface quality.  I am never going back – brushing on watered down glue is the way to go.
