These are my last Valentines for 2013. This is the one I gave to my daughter yesterday, and it was inspired by Pinspired Challenge #3.
I focused on the red and pink and the hearts. I used a Lifestyles Crafts colour wheel die to cut a red and pink circle and then taped it all together before cutting the heart out of the middle. The sentiment is an old Michael's stamp.
This card came about in two stages - here's the 'before', which I made from memory after seeing the inspiration photo briefly:
When I drafted this post and took a better look at the inspiration photo, I noticed the stripes on the wall and really wished that I had put stripes on my grey background. So I took the card apart and used a scoring tool to add the embossed stripes. Then I added the silver Stickles for sparkle.
Now for my son's valentine, which is based on this card I made previously:
I used a different heart and bigger holes, because (God help me) I think they make the white panel look like someone used it for rifle practice. My son is into that stuff. And I hunted around for my distressing tool (do you still have yours?!) for the edges and simply stamped the date (Papertrey Fresh Alpha) rather than having any mushiness on the card front. There was plenty inside, though! lol!
I hope you enjoyed Valentine's Day - I think it's commercial and a bit cheesy but it's still FUN!
