Live & Love Crafts DT Card

Hi everyone how are you all? Sorry I've been MIA this week its really been one of those weeks. Anyway I'm here today to show you something inspired by a movie, yep thats the theme Sandy set us DT girls over at Live & Love Crafts. Tbh I found this a bit hard as my favourite movies are action movies, especially anything with Jason Statham in them........he's awesome!! I'm not really a girly girl when it comes to movies, I like blood, gore, shooting & just lots of action...........how do I make that into a card full of frills & foofiness, you know the way I like them?? Well a little thing called Google, yep I googled lol.
I wanted to make a vintage kinda card, so I picked the image then looked for a movie to fit & this one fit perfectly.........
The movie is called 'P.S. I Love You'. All links to items used are at the bottom. I have used older Pion papers for this, they are from the 'From My Heart' collection so it was kinda perfect for this card. I have inked the edges & machine stitched them all as always.
I added a Canvas Mini Bag, which I also stamped with a Love Heart stamp with a dictionary quote on love.  I then added a tag to go inside & on it I've cut out letters saying 'P.S.' then I have stamped 'Love You' underneath. The inside is blank to add something a bit more personal. The 'Love You' stamp is from LOTV.

Of course I had to add this little lock charm saying 'LOVE' on it, I also added Gesso here & there ;0)

I love this image & thought it would be perfect for wedding or anniversary card. I machine stitched all around it & added a Resin Corner to the bottom right corner. On the top left corner is of course the 'Love key' to the lock charm lol, I also added a bit of corrugated card.

I added a clay heart & just above the clay heart I stamped a Whimsy postage mark onto the paper, its a Paris postage mark............well after all Paris is romantic............so they say anyway lol, I've never been unfortunately, maybe oneday my prince/hubster will take me away aaaaaahhhhhh......

Ok back to reality. All of these items used on this card except the stamps are from Sandy's fabbylicious store of course.............well where else can you get gorgeous vintage & shabby chic stuff as beautiful as this. This paper collection is discontinued by Pion so once Sandy has sold out they will be gone forever............maybe I should stock up on these as they really are so pretty. So if you want some of these gorgeous papers, pop on over to Live & Love Crafts & get them while you can ;0)

Ok well I better go now. Hope you all have a lovely weekend, enjoy lovelies mmwah
Thank you so much for stopping by, it really does mean a lot to me.
Lotsa hugs Vicky

I'm not much for girlie films either, but P.S. I love you isn't actually that bad. Mostly because Gerry Butler and Jeffrey Dean Morgan in one place is a win for me, lol.

Gorgeous card either way! Love the neutral colours. x

Beautiful card Vicky! It's so spot on with the film title and has so much loveliness on it.
I'm with you though. I like Horror, Sci-fi and Thrillers, same as the books I read.
My son and his girlfriend went to Paris where there's a bridge that you put a padlock on with both your initials. Only thing is it collapsed a few weeks ago, their padlock must have been the last straw! Debra x

LOL...that's hilarious. What did you google for? Romantic chick flick? :-) That's exactly what the card is though, very romantic and beautiful. Love the Eiffel tower postmark; Whimsy you said?... They have the best sentiment stamps, well apart from Stempelglede then.

Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

I'm with you on the choice of films; I like action stuff too, if it's got an exploding helicopter in it I'm a happy girl!
But I like my cards all girly and fancy too and well, pretty much like this one... not that I can make mine like this but I adore yours! One day I will be brave and throw more stuff on my cards - lol!
The colours and vintage feel are just beautiful and so romantic :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
