Hi. Today I am sharing a Valentines card. The lucky recipient will be my Mum, from my Dad :-) I make cards for them to give each other on every occasion, and each time I like to do something different so they don't end up with loads of similar cards. Believe me it isn't always easy!!
Anyway, onto the card. The cardstock is from Carta Bella - the patterned one from the Paris Girl range by Samantha Walker, and the pink one from the Devoted range by Carina Gardner. Both are double sided and mix and match perfectly. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Paper Distresser Tool. I cut out the Heart frame (without the outer circular cutting frame) from Sue Wilsons Italian Collection - Decorative Frames, and then cut the whole piece in half. I wanted to have some of the pretty pattern showing through, and love this effect! Sue Wilsons main Copenhagen die from the Scandinavian Collection was cut out in pink (without the backing piece). On top of this I added a circle (from the patterned card) and a glittered cardstock heart frame. It is difficult to see, but I backed the heart with the smallest cut out square from Sue Wilsons Times Square set from the New York Collection. This was again cut from the patterned card. You can just see the top of it poking out behind the flower. The flower die is from Cheery Lynn Designs. I cut it twice and shaped it slightly with a ball tool and layered it up. A small glittered circle was added to the flower centre. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, stamped onto the pink card and hand cut out. Notice the little pink heart? That's one of the little cut outs from the heart frame! :-)
Happy with the way it turned out, and I think my Mum will love it.
Thanks for stopping by.
