An Early Valentine's Day Card

Hi My Blog Friends

Everything is back to normal at our house we are all back to work and we mostly seem to be fit and well.  How are you all getting on?

This is the Valentine's Day card that I have made for my husband. I got this done early as I have some wedding invites to make in the next few weeks as well as a couple of commissions I have picked up a long the way.


I used a Clarity stamp to create the background and the focal element of this card. I stamped the All You Need is Love stamp with CS Perfect Medium and heat embossed it with White Fine Detail embossing powder. 


I cut the stamp out with one of my heart dies and to get the black mat I drew round the outside of the die and cut that out by hand,


There you have it all done and dusted and I know it is there when the time comes. I hate  making things in a rush it never ends well.  I did feel a bit guilty about the Christmas card I made him because it came from a kit. This one is a bit more creative. 


I hope your weekend goes well. We are off to pick up a couple of rabbits tomorrow, for our daughter, if all goes well I will post some pictures soon they are very cute. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
