Vintage Collage Valentines 2013

Hello Bloggers!
I have designed two Vintage Collage Valentines that I will be sharing with you today.
There are two ways to learn how to make them:
1. Take the class on February 6, 2012 at InkPaperRubber, Overland Park, Kansas.
2. Take my tutorial here which will post on February 12th. Note: I am having some trouble with the backlight on my laptop, so it may be late in the day Wed. before I get the tutorial posted.  I am going to post from my iPhone and will have to re-take all the photographs!  Sorry!  

I used Authentique Paper on one and Graphic 45 Paper on the other.
Here are the cards we will make:

This is the front view of Card #1.
I used Authentique's "Lovely" Paper Line, Prima Flowers, and trims from JoAnn's
This is another view of Card #1
This is the front view of Card #2
It was made from the Graphic 45's "A Place in Time" Paper Line, February page.
Prima flowers, German scrap and lace from InkPaperRubber were used to embellish.

You have a couple days to gather your supplies together, 
as the tutorial will post on Wednesday the 9th.
Supplies used are:
Pre-made Cards from Recollections, in the 5 x 7 size, available at Michael's, with envelopes
Fabric glue, glue stick or tape runner
Authentique "Lovely" paper using the double sided "Greetings" paper and "Beloved" paper
Graphic 45 "A Place in Time, February" double-sided paper
Basic Grey "Aspen Frost" music paper or music paper with reddish brown background
Prima Flowers in coordinating colors
German scrap in Bronze
Trim from JoAnn's in pink (or off-white and use Lindy's spray to color it)
Lace in a pumpkin color (or color of your choosing)
Pearl trim available at JoAnn's
Ribbon in coordinating color of your choice
I also used a stick pin.
If you have any questions leave a comment below!
See you Wednesday!

Honestly if you are local here in Kansas City, I would recommend the actual class at IPR because it may save you some money if you have to go out and buy all these supplies. If you already have a stash, the tutorial is a good way to go. All you would have to do is buy the paper, and use what you have at home. You may always substitute trims, etc. and not use just what I use... RA

ReNae, these cards are absolutely stunning. I particularly like what you did in the second one using the G45 "A Place in Time" paper. The colors and embellishments are fantastic and really capture the look.
