Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day crafty friends,
Hope you are enjoying sharing a day filled with love for those whom you love! Or at least enjoying time doing what you love.   I wanted to share one last Valentine’s day project with you. As I think about love, I am inevitably reminded of God's love for each and every one of us. I hope you will feel the love of our heavenly Father today and each day. So now for my card.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA
Here’s a look at my completed card. The finished size is 5 x 6.5. I started with a kraft cardstock base. I then used some white cardstock for a mat. I created the heart and banner cuts in my Pazzles software and used my Pazzles Inspiration Vue to cut them out. I created them in SVG format.

Formats: AI, EPS, KNK, MTC, SCAL, SVG, STUDIO and WPC Sorry no GSD or DXF

Next, I used another piece of white cardstock and then used one of the stamps from the distressed backgrounds along with my Hollyhock ink to stamp the background.

Next, I used my Cranberry Ink pad and one of the stamps from this month’s Stamp of the month set, A Happy Hello

Next, I took another piece of white cardstock and my black ink pad and one of the stamps from the flight of the arrows stamp set to create this next layer.

I then used some white cardstock to cut out the scalloped banner and heart layers. I used some more kraft cardstock for the top layer of the banner with the heart and dots cut out along with the top heart layer. I used the ruler and piercing tool and the journaling pen and created the faux stitched border on the banner.

I used the Happy Valentine’s Day Stamp along with my black ink pad for the sentiment. I added some gold sequins and used some foam tape to give the heart a little lift.

For the top, I just cut a piece of gold shimmer trim and black shimmer trim and created the little banners at the top.

Here is one last look at my finished card. It was a lot of fun to put together and came together relatively easily.
