Hi, guys! For today, I decided to make a friend a Valentine's Day card. She is an Elvis Presley fan beyond compare. I thought it would be great to make her one using a vintage stamped image of Elvis that I had. The stamps on this card are from a company called Stampsmith. They are a company that I discovered while at a stamp convention. They stamp like a photograph. The trick to using them is to make sure you have a "cushion" underneath them. I bought a 99 cent mouse pad I use for this purpose. The sentiment is one of a sheet filled with Elvis sayings and song lyrics.
Stamps: Stampsmith, Viva Las Vegas Stamps
Paper: Gina K (Black, White)
Ink: Versafine, Distress Inks, Archival
Misc.: Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, Gems
I decided to use some fun tissue tape by Tim Holtz with music on it, and some fun bling that reminded me of the white jumpsuit Elvis used to wear.
For fun I decorated the envelope. The sentiment is, appropriately enough, from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.
I wish Irvina a very Happy Valentine's Day and hope she finds her special "hunk o' love."
Until next time!
