Well, I'm a little late for Valentine's Day, but this will be for my DH. He was under the weather and we didn't really do much on Valentine's Day itself. I did make heart-shaped toast for the kids, which they thought was the bee's knees. If I were to do it again, though, I would apply the raspberry jam after cutting hearts out of the toast with scissors. Still, jam does wash off scissors and the kids thought it was great. Once in a while I'm a fun mummy :-)
I made this card for Bellarific Friday, which was to use the orchid and red colour scheme. I strayed a bit into pink too, and decided to make this a Valentine card. The centre heart has a Swarovski crystal in the flower centre, and out of deference to DH, this card is ribbon- and stickle-free. (It must be love!) My apologies for the scan - this would look much better photographed, ideally in one of those fancy light boxes. But if I were to wait to get that set-up in place, I might as well give up the blog. So, we will all have to make do with scanned cards, and just picture them looking uber-fabulous in real life.
This is also an early foray for me into CAS (clean and simple). I'm definitely an "add another layer" kind of gal. This kind of no-layer card is a big risk! Especially when you have everything stuck down and then stamp the "cherish" without a stamp-a-majig. Do I like to live on the wild side or what! Staid government drone by day, wild stampin' mama by night!
Thanks for stopping by!
