Love Bug


I always try to add a touch of blue color to some of my valentines to make them more suitable for boys, so here's a Love Bug card that includes some Island Indigo, along with a snippet of dsp from my over-flowing stash. I stamped the image (an old wooden stamp) on white, and colored it with Copics, then die cut it with a MFT stitched circle die. I matted it with red using a SB scalloped circle die. The horizontal border was embossed with a SU! ef, and the heart is from the new SU! Sealed with Love framelit die set. The arrow was die cut with a  Momenta arrow and woven into the slits in the heart.

I based my card on the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #384 but flipped the sketch.


This is going into my Cards from the Heart card drive box, and I've used this sketch to make several more cards in assorted colors and patterns for this card drive.
  Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

The heart & arrow are a nice embellishment and I really like the panel that is embossed with the hearts! Great card and it is sure to bring a smile to someone's face on Valentine's Day! Love it! TFS and have a great day! :)

This is a lovely card, perfect for a little boy at valentine time! Love the design and the colours choice. The arrow that woven into the heart's slits looks great, such a clever idea!And it matches very well with the embossd orizontal stripe!

Aw... cute! I like the addition of blue to your Valentine's card. I've seen some great color combos being used this year. I like that trend. As for me, I should add blue to every card I make because I have more blue snippets than you can shake a stick at!
