February Week 3 – Valentines Card

Obviously with the subject being Valentines Card this is again a delayed post – for 2 reasons 1. So hubby didn’t see the card before the day and 2.  To give me time to have a bit of a catch up.

So for this card I used the following from my stash:

I used my Cricut Explore to cut the text and then accentuated parts of it with the stickles.  My aim was to keep a pretty clean and simple (CAS) card.

Challenge 7 – Valentines Card

So today has defiantly been a busy day.  Another challenge – but this time a card.  Its that time of year where we are charged a fortune to show our loved ones we love them and care for them – something I believe we should be doing all year round! But with tradition I do make the hubby a valentines card.

For this card I used the following challenges for inspiration:

I used the following from my stash:

  • 8 x 8 White Card Blank
  • Hearts Paper (freebie from PDA Card and Craft)
  • 8 x 8 Capsule Spots and Stripes Bright paperstack (from Papermania)
  • Lilac Vellum
  • Hobbycraft Purple Heart Gems
  • Purple Ribbon (no idea where I Got this from)
  • Core’dinations Super Assortment Card Stock – embossed using Spellbinders M-Bossabilities: Hearts then sanded.
  • Do Craft Forever Love DieCut Sentiments
  • Rub Off Sentiments (Happy Valentines – no idea where I got these).
  • Ranger Starry Night Stickles

I hope you enjoy the card I created… and hopefully the hubby wont look at this post until after valentines day!
