Non Traditional Valentine's Day Cards

I love a good challenge. It has been a while since i have made a card. I saw the January Challenge on Papertrey Ink's Blog and thought it would be fun to play along. They have the most darling stamps, the cutest monthly releases and the best shipping times.

The Challenge: Use a set to make a card that you haven't inked before.
I was inspired by the PTI design team's linear work.

Example 1:

Example 2:
I love the elegant feel the damask print gives these cards. It will come in handy for both Valentines Day & a sweet card to say I love you!

I used:
Black and Blush Cardstock from my stash
Papertrey Ink: Damask Designs
Black Grosgrain Ribbon
Black Pen & Ruler


  1. Good Golly! I live in awe. This is magnificent to say the least. Your colors, composition (linear loveliness) and natty envie are all to die for. You've made Damask Designs take flight.

  2. Love these colors and such a truly beautiful card!

  3. What a great use of Damask! It turned out beautiful!
