Easy Valentine

As I was writing this post, I found out that my Baby Whale card was featured on DeNami Designs' Facebook page this afternoon!  I'm so happy they spotted it and liked it.  Thank you, ladies!

I, aka the Slow-Poke Stamper, managed to make a quick Valentine today. 

Thanks to some great new stickers by K & Company, this card came together quickly.

I stamped Bella Toile background (SU) in Pretty In Pink on a white card base.  I cut out a chocolate frame with two sizes of Spellbinders scalloped rectangle dies, then embossed it with the Textile embossing folder by Cuttlebug.  I made a frame with my dies before in THIS post.  It's so easy. 

Tied on some ribbon from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store in one corner, put a piece of doily inside the frame, and attached two stickers.  Done!

Pretty-like the frame and how you use parts of the doilies-gives them an entirely different look.

Hi Colleen

This looks totally scrummy and sometimes just because a card was put together relatively quickly doesn't mean it wont be a fabulous card - case in point here!!

Take care and have a great weekend.

Your chocolate frame is just gorgeous. I really like your "LOVE" word...so pretty. And, I see those beautiful doilies again. Just a sweet card straight from the heart.

Well this certainly has LOVE written all over it! I love all those little things you added here.....the bits of doily, the embossed handmade frame (which I'm going to try like you did and emboss it!), and the heart stickers.
