Hey, babes! Happy Day of Love! I thought I'd pop on here today to share the few cards I designed to memory keep Valentine's Day this year. John and I are going to be WILDLY wrapped up in our own thing today being that it's Tuesday and our routine is normal, both working, me dancing later on tonight, so... I used my favorite photo from this past weekend.
The sentiment behind the bigger 4x6 card is exactly true about this photo. I had planned to take a really cute styled shot of the both of us dressed up and use it for social media today, but alas that photo didn't happen, and this was the only one we got. I love it though, and it's SO US (hence the smaller 3x4 card...not to mention the reference to my new FAVORITE show). 'This is US' - him dressed to kill, trying to be cool with his Mona Lisa smile, and me - a bull in China shop - cheesein' as hard as I can in the background.
They are the most perfect simple Valentine's cards for me this year (I predict that 4x6 one will apply to so many future photos) and I thought they might work perfectly for your documenting needs as well.
That is why I've made these designs available to download for free. Click on the image to download.
You might notice there are three different 3x4 'This is US' cards. One says Valentine's Day 2017 one says Valentine's Week 2017 and the third one says We so fancy. Since the photo I was using wasn't taken on the actual Valentine's Day, but rather the weekend before, I wanted to accurately described that: hence, Valentine's WEEK.
I included a card that reads 'we so fancy' so it could be used at any time of the year to describe a fancied up couple, not just Valentine's Day. ;)
Below, I show you how you can build upon a couple of the cards from my downloadable page, plus a photo of you and your honey. One of my favorite ways to paper play is by looking through my collected stash of pocket cards and - by combing different patterns and colors - creating my own festive 'kit' for whatever occasion I'm documenting. Here's how my accumulated & self-curated 'kit' looks for Valentine's Day:
I'm in love!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and if you decide to download and create with these cards, I'd so appreciate it if you could tag me @amandarosezamp on Instagram + twitter.
