Sweet Love

I had major mojo going on yesterday while my husband was home, so I took advantage and made some fun cards to share with you the next couple of days. I started out with the intention of making a Valentine's card for Michael, but when I finished it I thought it looked a little girly. This seems to happen all the time! So now I have a card for Michael to give to me - ha! Ok, maybe this can be a card for the grandparents. I started out with Regal Rose for my card base and layered Chocolate Chip and Rose Red prints paper. The 3 eyelets in the corner are punched through just the prints paper and Chocolate Chip so you don't see the backs of the eyelets in the card. I used my Stamp-a-majig to position the letters just so and the "YOU" sentiment in the e. I love popping up little pieces of my images, so this little flower was perfect on the heart. I stamped the heart again on Regal Rose and cut out the flower. Of course I needed to add more creative candy bling to my flower to add that little spark. I added stampin dimensionals before tying the Chocolate Chip ribbon around my sentiment and since I really didn't have room for my little knot, I made room by punching a 1/8 hole in the corner to let the ribbon peek through and not seem too crowded on the card front. Stamp sets are: Celebrate Everything, Big Deal Alphabet, and Time Well Spent (hostess). Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Tuesday.
