It's Valentines's Day today! If you celebrate - have a lovely day and if you don't, have a lovely day! Its not everyone's cup of tea and for some its a sad day or a day full of memories, It makes some people cross! Whichever it is for you - have the best day you can! I love (excuse the pun) it! I can tell Darren (my husband) I love him even more than I do every day anyway! I know, I am a big softie! Here is his card:
I started with the main image which is a Crafter's Companion Moonbeam Meadow rubber stamp from the Hugs and kisses set - I just love it! I stamped it on a scrap of white card in black Versafine and embossed with clear powder then coloured with Promarkers and added a touch of Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. Its cut out using Spellbinders Labels Eighteen (which I won from Pixies Snippets Playground last year, thank you Di!). The large hearts are cut from a piece of leftover inked card from a previous project using dies that were free with a magazine, and the small red hearts were left over from a previous project. The background stamping is done using two stamps from Avery Elle clear stamp set Lots of Love - stamped in Versamark and embossed with clear powder. I trimmed the blue card with one of the Stitched Basic E dies from My Favourite Things and glued it to the card base then added the three hearts which are under the main image after working out placement, then popped the image up on foam tape for dimension. The sentiment is from JustRite clear stamp set Doodled Birds (I love the sentiment so much) its embossed on snippets of the blue card with Veramark and white detail embossing powder. After I had glued the sentiment to my card, I added the last two blue hearts and all the little red hearts to go with the red roses.
