Valentine Hearts

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? We actually managed to sneak off to the cinema on Tuesday evening to see Passengers there was a 2 for 1 offer at our local Odeon. My husband got home early and we dashed off to catch an earlier performance,  it was very enjoyable.

While there is a slight lull in wedding makes (I have supplies on order for the invites) I thought I ought to start thinking ahead to cards I might need in the not too distant future. Well February and Valentine's Day are not far away so I decided to make a card for my husband. We usually give each other cards and have a nice meal usually the M & S meal deal.


I started by making all the mats and layers. 


Then I started playing with my dies. I used the Heart of Hearts die set and the Heart Love die set both designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. I remembered that I had bought some Distress Glitter in a sale. I know it is pink but I decided to use it anyway. I was just going to use it on the love die but I liked it so much I used it to edged the Heart of Hearts dies. I didn't use the heart detail this time I embossed the hearts instead. 


The sentiment was cut with a Britannia die. The text layer was a late addition to the design but I think it shows off the hearts nicely. 


So this card is now hidden in a drawer. I can blog and share it on Facebook as he never looks at those. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. Take care, 


Happy Crafting
