Finally, February is upon us! I'm so excited for Valentine's Day to come and go. I enjoy making Valentine's Day cards, but that's pretty much the end of it. I have a couple more designs to share before "the big day," so there's more to come!
This first card was started about a year ago. I could never figure out how to finish it in a way that was pleasing to the eye. Finally, I put on some ribbon and a tag that filled some of the empty space at the top of the card and, voila, it looked finished! (Because this was started so long ago, I may not remember all the details about the card.)
Paper: card base (Georgia-Pacific), brown (Core'dinations),
Misc.: nestabilities, ribbon (Michael's), baker's twine (Whisker Graphics), punch (Martha Stewart)
This next card is a no-stamping card. I cut the circles and added them onto the card and the hearts I punched. The belt is paper cut from leftover background paper.
Paper: white card base (Georgia-Pacific), Purely Pomegranate (Stampin' Up!) and blue (Core'Dinations), Vintage Valentine "Valentine Strips" (Fancy Pants Designs)
Ink: Purely Pomegranate
Misc.: circle Nestabilities, doily die (MFT), heart punch (Stampin' Up!), heart buttons (Pebbles), buckle (CTMH), sponge
I used the altered doily approach again on this card. I like the "airiness" it gives to the image. I also hand-cut the clouds and created the sentiment on the computer. I'm entering his image into Stamp, Scrap, and Doodles "Have a Heart" Challenge.
Stamps: "High-Flyin' Mouse" digi (Rick St. Dennis)
Misc.: MFT doily die, baker's twine (Whisker Graphics), heart brad (Making Memories)
