True Love valentine card

Why are flowers always considered to be feminine?  I made this Valentine card for my husband - he likes flowers too!

True Love Valentine Card for my true love

As soon as I looked at the Mini Catalogue, the True Love Designer Series Paper went straight to the top of my wish list!  I LOVE the elegant black and white designs and the vesatility!  One side has beautiful floral images that can be coloured, if you wish, with your favourite medium.  The other side has gorgeous and multi-functional geometric designs - suitable for any gender and any occasion - which can also be enhanced with the addition of colour if desired.

For this card, I coloured one of the posies with my Stampin' Blends alcohol makers and fussy cut it.  

The layer beneath the flowers is a leftover piece from this card, made with a mask, glue and Gilded Leafing.  I used it because it was on the desk but could just as easily have used another pattern from the paper pack (and it would probably have looked better!).

The other decorative layers are more pieces from the True Love paper pack, combined with Real Red and Basic Black cardstock.

The greeting, from Forever Blossoms, was stamped with Real Red ink and cut out with one of the Tasteful Labels dies.

Thank you for visiting
'Til next time!

  2. Stephanie,

    It's Marianne from the USA, I was just thinking about you, wondering how you are, and came to your blog to see what you had been making. I hope that your lack of posting is just because you have busy with other things and in no way related to your health. If you get my message and care to get back to me, my email address is I really do pray you are just doing other things!

    1. Hi Marianne! Thank you so much both for visiting and also your concern - I'm very touched! I'm sorry to have caused you anxiety. My lack of posting has been more about mental than physical health. But I think I'm improving - I have been spending more time in my craft room in the last couple of weeks.
      Very best wishes

    2. It was good to get your email and to see this message. I see that you have posted a couple of blog entries. I will take a look at them later.
