Cupids Arrow for a Son!

The next card I made was for my oldest son.  I decided to go a little vintage and used a kit I had purchased at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique in Chico, CA on my travels.  This card uses a paper that features a collage of old-fashioned Valentine's of earlier decades (about when I was of elementary age in the mid-1950's) and seemed to still be around when this son was an elementary age child in the 1970's.  Since the patterned paper features mostly boy Valentine images, I decided it would be perfect for my son, David.  

The bow & arrow and hearts were cut using Accu-Cut dies with glitter paper and backed with lightweight chipboard.  I decided the card needed a bit more framing to enhance and make the words pop on the paper and the ribbon, so I added a black mat between the patterned paper and the white cardbase.  Other than this change, the card remains true to it original design.  I think David liked his card...a bit of nostalgia!
