My Heart Beats for You

I created a Valentine today for my sweetest husband, based on this Mojo Monday sketch:



I used Webster's Pages 6 x 6 papers, from the Waiting For Santa collection, which I've been hoarding TOO long.  Those are on the smallest rectangular layers.  There's a bit of Baja Blue cardstock there, and the largest layer on the card is retired (yes, I know, again) Stampin' Up! Christmas patterned paper in River Rock.


This sentiment is from Verve's Heart to Heart, and so is the stamped double heart behind it.  The heart comes as two different stamps:  a solid, and an outline.  You can use them separately, or together.

I put a small crocheted lace ribbon tab beneath the sentiment label, 'cause that's the challenge at CARDS: create this week -- 'cards with ribbon tabs'.

The crocheted lace looks like upside-down hearts to me, so I used a bit of that, too.


Beneath the stamped heart, I used the Wrought Iron corner punch to create one little 'crown'.

One more challenge entered:  Ribbon Carousel Challenge 39 - 'Anything Goes'.

I'd better run...that Ribbon Carousel challenge closes in hours!

Pretty! Since I know you are expecting me to say it, the wrought iron punch is INDEED the crowning touch! I kove the touch of pearls on that punched piece! Well done.

Oh, such a fine Valentine for your hubby. I do love the 'crown' you have for him. Does that mean he is 'King'? Well, maybe for one day. :-) The crocheted trim is great.
Have a 'sweet' day.

Happy Valentines Day Coleen. This card is fabulous - love all the really great details (and there are million great details). Can't decide if the lace or that little iron gate punch with the bling is the best....I think the punch wins (of course). Your DH will love it. Hugz!
