Happy New Year! As January 1st hit, I've hit the ground running with my Valentine designs. Today's card is a fun play on a vintage typewriter.

When thinking about Valentine's Day, I knew I wanted to go traditional with this image. So even though you don't usually see a typewriter in red, I like the vibrant look to it. And if IBM was still creating those typewriters, we'd have to request a nice bright red!

One dilemma I had was deciding on the embossed background. I wanted to create a card that could be used for both men and women so I knew I did not want it too feminine. I settled on this medium dot folder because it kind of reminds me of the round keys the typewriters used to have, keeping with the whole vintage theme.

I've been so immersed in Valentines for kids that it felt great to make an adult card! And now it's back to the studio for more designs!
