Tonight, I am up late making a card for the hubby on Valentine's Day. Not sure how it happened, but somehow it was a last minute thing this year. He does look forward to his handmade card; so I couldn't disappoint :) lol! I really do enjoy making vday card for friends and family but this year I dropped the ball and this card is one a very few I was able to make. Oh well... next year! :)
Found some inspiration in this week Simon Says Challenge, where the challenge this week is LOVE!
This is what I came up with:
I used my new Martha Stewart doily hearts edge punch (thank you Tracy!!!). Really like this punch! I found this really FUN scallop heart pattern paper from DCWV Doodlin' Around stack. For the big heart, I used a combination of Cricut Sweetheart cartridge for the scallop heart and the heart made of hearts, I used Cricut Love Struck cartridge. Really like how the combination came out. I tried to make this card a bit more masculine by adding a grey piece from DCWV Shimmer stack. The kraft paper and the grey turns down a bit all the pink used here. I had FUN adding the gem hearts and rinestones. The sentiment is from a studio G stamp that was just the right size.
Here is the inside, made use of a few more studio G stamps I've manage to collect :).
Left the pink color out from the inside and added a Martha Stewart scallop heart punch. I really hope he likes this last minute creation that came together under pressure! :)
Have a FUN vday everyone! Happy Valentine's Day!
