There are lots of Valentine based challenges about at the moment and I used a couple in the making of my card. I used the layout from CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#108 and the the general theme of Valentine from Fusion - FUSION#27. From our inspiration photo I took the colours of reds, pinks and browns, along with the text which I incorporated with the texty hearts.
I printed the Bugaboo digi on white card, coloured it with Copic markers, cut it out with a die and added some sparkle to the large hearts and the word Love. I created my own background by using all the heart images from All My Love - stamping them randomly on the base and in lots of colours! I adhered the die cut image with dimensional tape. On the inside of the card I cut a mat layer of pink card, stamped a sentiment on the white panel and added another, slightly smaller, Valentine Jar. I've taken a close up of the big hearts so that you can see the shimmer.
I think the cross stitched frame is just perfect for this card - it echos the hugs and kisses theme!! Do check out our blog to see more inspiration projects from the team based on our photo. Have fun!!!
