Hi all - I'm back again! Think I'm on a roll at the moment :) Hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far. It's a tad cold still, but the sun is shining - which definitely makes for one happy crafty bunny here!
Today I'm showing a Valentine's card, which I was asked to make by my fiance's boss to give to his wife. Last year he made the mistake of leaving it until the last minute, rushing to the shop after work and picking up the first card he came to ...... on presenting it to his wife with a smug glow, imagine his horror when she opened it up to find that he had, in fact, bought her a birthday card!! Hee hee!
For this card I followed the sketch over at CLP Challenge. I added cheesecloth under the first mat (I do love how this softens a card) and added lace and a doily under my second mat. The little heart charm was originally silver - I coloured it to co-ordinate with my tree hearts.
This gorgeous digital stamp called Willow Heart Tree is from Cedar Chest Designs. I coloured with my Copics - Hearts R32, R37, R59 Tree Trunk/Ground E31, E35, E57. I then added 3D crystal laquer over each heart to give a raised, shiny effect.
The floral arrangement is a mixture of die-cut flowers and leaves, as well as beautiful roses. I added little red and cream heart pins to add to the romance :)
Here is a little side and inside view ......... let's hope Mr Boss Man's lovely wife likes her card this year ;)
