First Valentine


I finished a valentine and kept it pretty simple. I used a PTI die for the sentiment in the center, die-cutting from white card stock and red felt. The water colored background was done with an Aqua brush and some real red ink along with a spritz of water. The felt hearts and black arrows were cut with a SU! Love Notes framelit die set. I used a craft knife to cut a slit into each heart so I could insert the arrows. I added some Geo Sparkler stickers in tiny red hearts and circles, then added some sparkly clear Nuvo drops to the sentiment panel and added more droplets randomly on the card.




I suppose I'd better get busy on those Valentine cards as it's just about a month away already! I'm way behind on what I usually have done by now........sigh :)

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day whatever you're doing!

This is fantastic, Carol! I love all that watery color taking center stage behind your heartfelt LOVE! And the two felt heart and arrow anchors are awesome! (Just proofing and noticed that I've used both heartfelt and felt heart, thanks to your design! Love that, haha!) Sorry I've been busy and rubbish at visiting! Hope you both are starting the new year out well!! Hugs, Darnell xxoo
