Happy Valentines Day!

Love is in the air!! It's Valentines Day!! What's great this year is that Valentines day falls on halfterm so i get to spend the whole day with my lovely hubby!!

Here's the valentines card i made for him, designed by the lovely Jade and made at her crafty coffee morning last week:

Isn't it such a completely cute card!! It started life as a 'Whisper White' cardbase, on which a piece of 'Real Red' card (ran through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder' has been layered on to. The sentiment (from the 'Teeny Tiny Wishes' set) was stamped in 'Real Red' onto a piece of 'Whisper White', punched out using the 'Word Window Punch' and stuck into place using 'Dimensionals' to create a 3D effect. Next we glued in place a 'Whisper White' 'Top Note' (created using the 'Big Shot') ontop of which we placed a 'Real Red' 'Top Note' (with the end trimmed off) We glued a 'Whisper White' '1-3/8" Circle' and then embossed the 'Top Note' and circle using the 'Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder'. Finally we punched two owls from 'Basic Black' card using the 'Owl Punch' and two branches from the 'Two Step Bird Punch' to create the lovebirds!! (the branches were glued down to the card and then the owls were raised using 'Dimensionals'.)

I just love this card and design - i think that this card is completely versatile and with a change of sentiment could be a fab wedding, anniversary or engagement card!!

Wishing you a fabulous Valentines Day!! I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish my Grandfather in law John a very happy birthday - February is a busy birthday month - it is also my twin brother in laws birthdays tomorrow so the next few days will feature birthday cards on my blog - so keep visiting back daily!!

  1. That's really nice. I'd never have thought to use the owls as a silhouette like that before. Have a nice day!
