Well this is the first Valentine's Day Card I have ever made. It hasn't been a type of card i have ever given, but this year I have been inspired by the Vintage Verses Stamp Set from Sale a Briton, and also by the gorgeous Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack (129312).
I have taken one of the Midnight Muse pages and cut around the beautiful journalling section. I have mounted this on Midnight Muse cardstock and trimmed it with a small border to compliment the design. I love how intricate and delicate it is. Then I stamped the "day as perfect as you are" using the stamp n' write markers to colour selected sections of the rubber only. The Happy Valentine's Day sentiment comes from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set (119185) and is stamped in Old Olive.
The background paper is also Old Olive form the Polka Dot Parade DSP (126902) which has been sponged around the edges to soften the white polka dots a little.
The new Striped Organdy Ribbon from page 30 of the summer Mini (129291) was one of those "must try" purchases and I am not sorry I bought it - it's really easy to use. since I am giving this to my Husband who doesn't really go for pink I thought I would try and not make it too pretty, so I anchored the ribbon with the ribbon sliders which were in the Christmas Catalogue. I was really pleased with the new Stampin' Trimmer (129722) and how easy it was to cut an accurate slit 1.2cm long on each side of the journal piece. If you don't have one of these trimmers I can really recommend them - they make it all so easy.
I did put a little bit of bling on my card with some silver highlight using the stampin dazzle pen from the christmas catalogue, and I cut out and layer up 2 hearts out in each of the silver glimmer paper, and the midnight muse cardstock using my newest purchase - the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits(125596).
SO many great products, and it is so easy when they all coordinate. If you would like to purchase any of these please contact me.
Happy Valentine's Day to you.
Maybe now I'll try a pink version with one of the other pages form the paper stack, hmmm...
thanks for looking, Liz
