Happy Valentine's Day

Hello everyone. So Valentine's day is 4 days away and I've been on a roll making cards for my friends. I have a full schedule this weekend keeping myself distracted from whats supposed to be a fabulous holiday. Friday night, I hope to see a certain special someone I just started dating. Because its still new, I dont want it to be an awkward moment for us on Sunday. Saturday night will be a fun date with all my girlfriends at the night club dancing the night away. Followed by brunch with my family on sunday morning.

Well enough about me, lets get on with the latest creation. I liked the last card so much I wanted to do something similar and simple.

Again, I started with a plain white base cardstock, and added the rest of the elements. I'm thoroughly enjoying the new 3 corner punch from Friskar I purchased at the local craft store, that I wanted to illustrate the other designs from it.

Also I added the silver brads to the punched corners to enhance the cuts. Then I used the SU! Priceless set, specifically the filagre piece on both side of the heart, which also came from the same set. And of course, to give it dimension, I rose all the pieces. As for the foe ribbon cut piece, I used a polka dot dsp paper and layered it with plain chocolate chip cardstock. I hope you like. Thanks again for stopping by.

I love u card

Hello everyone, greetings from the sunshine state.... seriously, lots of sunshine coming our way after all the rain and mudslides some have encountered I think we really need it now. The weather man says we'll be in the mid 70's this weekend and 80's by next week.... WOW! But enough about the weather..... I want to share my latest Valentine creation.

I thought of this card when I was at the local craft store. There were lots of filagre designs for Valentine stickers and pop-ups. So I thought I'd make my own with some ribbon I had left over from Christmas. It has this awesome kraft color flowers and the red makes it look just amazing. So I focused the rest of the design based on the ribbon itself. It's simple and yet it still looks great with less.

I started with the Kraft cardstock for the centerpiece, punched the corners with a Fiskars 3 corner punch called Heritage, then added the Real red heart. The design on the Vanilla white piece was from a SU! wheel that I purchase a while back I cant even find the catalog I got it And for the last piece I use Kraft paper with Riding hood ink from SU! with the Happy heart set for the sentiment in the middle and at the bottom of the card. I hope you like and thanks again for stopping by. Tooddles!
