Unicorn Challenge Blog - Lots of Love

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good week so far. Yesterday I saw a friend who I haven't seen for a while,  I finished some invitations I have been making and I finished a commission that I will be sharing with you on Friday. I hope today is as productive.

Today sees the start of a new challenge on the Unicorn Challenge Blog and the theme is Lots of Love just in time for all those Valentine's makes.


I recently purchased the Sue Wilson double pierced squares set A and I used them to make the layers on this card. I just love that you can have all your mats pierced I would never have done this with a piercing ruler. I also used the Heart Lattice Embossing folder to emboss some of the layers. I highlighted the detail with some distress ink. 


This heart die is amazing it is the Heart of Hearts die set. When you cut it the leftovers are gorgeous little embossed hearts. It also has an outer die so that you can cut a perfect mat for the heart. No more drawing round the outside of the die for me. 


The sentiment was cut with some dies that were in a bundle that I won from Hochanda. 


There you have it my finished Valentine's Day card this one might be for my husband. Last year when I posted a Valentine's Day card someone asked if they could buy it so I let them. I made another for my husband but it wasn't as good as my first. 


Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
