Yet Another Valentine's Day Card


Loved this sketch by Create with Connie and Mary from a week or so ago and turned it into another Valentine's Day card.  Don't worry, I'm almost done now LOL!  I have always loved hearts so Valentine's Day cards have always been one of my favorite type of cards to create.  This one was no exception.

Wanted to keep things on the clean and simple side and am happy with the result.  I experimented with crimping the heart to see what it would look like and I love it (okay...it's official.....my crimper has become my newest addiction LOL!).  The crimping adds some wonderful texture and depth to the heart and helps it stand out against the embossed hearts panel.  A little button with some silver twine was my finishing touch.   Nice and easy and I like it.  Think this may end up being my daughter's card as she's a pink, pink girl and very feminine (unlike her mother LOL!).

Have a fabulous day and don't forget to tell those near and dear to you that you love them.  It will make their day.

love that embossing :) So many blingy details that are making me smile :) That's one thing about V-Day cards...they are girly, girly and I love it! Picked up some ms felt flowers and more blinged out ribbon in red and purple :) Trying to teach myself how to make zipper flowers via You Tube...watch me go to Kelowna and the LSS and see them already made...oh well...I need a new skill :)
