Hello blogging friends! I know it's been a few days since my last post. I have been having a hard time trying to get back in to the swing of things after coming home from CHA. You would think a week later and I would be all rested up but I feel like I am still trying to get caught up on sleep. I have still been working on projects but the past couple of days I have been typing up instructions for publications. I will admit it--I hate typing--LOL!! But at least I got it done and now I can move on to some fun things.
Today I have a Valentine card to share with you and I also have some fun Valentine Blog Candy!! First I will show you the card and then I will get to all of the details on the Blog Candy.
Here is the Valentine card that I designed. It's a clean and simple look but I love the red and white with just a hint of black and silver. I used Pearlized Dark Red Scored Card for the base and one of the matting layers and White Linen for one of the matting layers, oval and tag. All of the die templates are from Spellbinders Creative Arts™ January 2013 CHA Collection. These are the die templates that I used, S5-171 A2 Curved Matting Basics A, S5-172 Curved Matting Basics B and S5-177 A2 Filigree Delight . All of these die templates are part of the Card Creator Collection from Spellbinders.
I used CR-04325 Antique Valentine Tags One stamp set from JustRite Papercraft. I stamped the decorative key hole using Memento Lady Bug and then edged the tag with both Lady Bug and Rhubarb Stalk. Then I used Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the sentiment. I used 3D Foam Squares to layer the oval and the tag and then I added 3/8" White Satin with Silver Metallic Edge ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and a handmade stick pin.
