Valentine



Hello all,

Here is a Valentine's card made as a commitment for a group I am in. I had a choice of what I could incorporate, so I chose the hearts and the colours found on a playing card.

The main image is an Outlines stamp which I have stamped and embossed in black on red and on then on white cardstock. This has to be done multiple times as then you cut out all the layers. Using thin DSFT I then layered them all. The thin DSFT is best as the work doesn't become too high and awkward looking...or maybe I should say...cheap looking!

I highlighted bits and pieces using H2O's and put the little greeting down the bottom with the aid of Nesties and the Cuttlebug!

Update on my kitchen...Ready to tear my hair out!....I am having trouble with splash backs if I choose not to have tiles. I did find a deadly red tile...did all the maths and then the bloke says...sorry, not available....Why, I ask, is it then on display? The only other option is glass....and truly, I need to win lotto for that! Back to the think tank to see what we can come up with. Suffice to say, I will be cooking on the dining table for at least 8 weeks...Yay!....NOT.

This is beautiful Shell! Love all of the layered hearts. I do hope the kitchen things get straight soon...would hate for you to be bald, but maybe wigs will make a huge come back...I would love long, thick (which I have neither) blonde hair I wouldn't have to highlight all of the time, LOL! :o)

Beautiful hearts! Lovely card! I don't own any outlines stamps, but I am always impressed with the cards I see using their stamps.
