Don't you just love Valentine's Day? And is there anything better than receiving Valentine cards in the mail...or in person? I love to send out Valentine cards so I'm working on my stash. Today I used Karen Lockhart's Tart of Hearts stamp. I was inspired by a thank you card that I received that had a square grid pattern all over the front of the card. So I started out by coloring my image with Copic markers and then punching it out, along with some My Mind's Eye patterned paper, with a square punch. I layered the squares onto a white piece of cardstock, then onto a Spellbinder's Square Scalloped Die. I used more of the My Mind's Eye patterned paper for the base card and added a Papertrey Valentine sentiment and some pink sequin stickers.
I embellished the inside of the card with a strip of the patterned paper, another Valentine sentiment from Papertrey and some hand drawn black lines.
Here's a view of the card that shows how glittery and shimmery it is. This particular line of My Mind's Eye paper called Laundry Line is all glittery and embossed, very pretty. I tied in my stamped image by using some Ranger Glossy Accent on the hearts.
Well, Josey just left for a Girl Scout trip to a museum, so it's just me and Jordy. She's dying to do something crafty. I peeked into her room and gave her the *clean your room or we're not doing anything * look. So while she's cleaning (more like playing with something she found that was lost under the mess), I am tidying up my stamp room. I got some vintage finds for my craft room that I need to make room for. Have a great day everyone!
