These are so fun to make. Scan in vintage valentine postcards, then embellish them with old lace, buttons, jewelry, and then spray the whole card with spray adhesive and sprinkle with glitter. I find all of my lace, buttons, jewelry and envelopes at tag sales. I bring them home, separate them, put them in fun containers or baskets, and then when I feel creative, I have lots to work with. These are easy and fast to make, have fun!

I'm always so hesitate to use my vintage postcards for projects because I don't want to part with them. Now I can keep the originals and use copies for projects. Thanks for the inspiration.

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays!! Thanks for the inspiration to send a card to a friend!
