Three heart Valentine

Good morning folks, thanks for stopping by. I hope you're having a good weekend so far. I got up this morning with card sketches in my head... go figure. Somethings I go weeks without posting a card and now that's all I seem to think about. I'm actually more excited these days because I ordered some more Spellbinder nestabilities dies. I hope to get them by Monday to show you what I've ordered with new cards.

Today's card is another Valentine's creation... my sister has basically kept me busy these days due to her co-workers wanting handmade Valentine's day cards for their love ones. So I started off with a basic white card stock as the base and layered again with another piece of the same color. I gotta say that I'm really enjoying making cards this way, rather than over-whelming it with different color pieces. Sometimes the simplicity of the card can make it that more appealing.
Anyway, I then followed my centerpiece with Labels three using SU! Real red and Rockabilly specialty dsp (retired) and the heart from SU! Priceless set is with white ink and embossed with clear powder.

Next, I added the Grossgrain stitched red ribbon tied with a simple knotted bow. For the three heart pieces I used
1 1/4" for the white piece and the 1" for the red. I then used SU! Seasonal Icons set (retired) heart piece using SU! black craft ink and embossed it with clear powder.

The Happy Valentine sentiments used at the bottom and inside of the card is from SU! A happy heart set. and for the finishing step inside the card I used Martha Stewarts doily edge punch.

I hope you like it and look forward on hearing from you.
