Beary Valentine



I dug into my stash and found this pre-colored, printed image, and I'm sorry I have no idea where I got it or who makes the cute image, but I decided it was high time to make it into a card. I used a piece of neutral patterned paper with a pretty scroll design at the top from the DCWV naturals stack that I've had for eons. I also found a small snippet of pink hearts dsp that seemed to match the colors on this image, so I die-cut all 3 panels with Lil Inker stitched rectangles and layered them up. I split a Valentine sentiment into 3 pieces, heat-embossing with white ep on black and fastened them to the side with mini dimensionals. I used a Copic to scribble on a snippet of white in matching pink, and die-cut some tiny hearts using a SNSS heart border die, then attached the mini hearts to the top of the dsp and one to the sentiment panel. I'm glad to use up some dsp for a change and I think this turned out cute :)

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:




Thanks for checking in today and I wish you a fabulous day!
