I had a very low key day yesterday. I had good intentions once again to get some stuff done, like decorate the tree. Unfortunately I failed to remember where I put the decorations when I moved so I decided to make it a crafty day and I got a bunch of cards made instead. Were they Christmas cards you might inquire? Of course not! They were thank you and birthday cards that I have needed to make. I’ll get around to the Christmas cards, hopefully! It was definitely a relaxing day so not bad for a Sunday! I hope that you had a nice day too!
So, occasionally my brain does weird things, for example today I have a valentine card. Why is that odd? Well it’s Christmas but when I looked at the date yesterday and saw it was the 14th it triggered Valentine’s Day! Like I said… weird! LOL! The card is packed full of new goodies so that makes up for it! The base of the card is Crisp Cantaloupe Card Stock. The background is a piece of Real Red. I used an element from the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlit* to cut out the hearts along the bottom of the panel. I then used the Ampersand Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and traced around it with a Copic Multi-liner Marker. My greeting is from the You Plus Me Stamp Set* and is heat embossed on Vellum in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut out with the Hearts Collection Framelits. Some very carefully placed 2-Way Glue adheres it to the card. The teeny bow on top is made with the Bow Builder Punch and a piece f paper from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack*. I used Sticky Strip to put the bow together and a Glue Dot to adhere it to the card. Like I said packed with new goodies! I hope that you enjoyed the sneak peek and early Valentine’s card! Thank you of checking and I wish you a very good Monday! 🙂
