A Valentine Card

Hello, my dear friends!
I hope you're all enjoying a beautiful Valentine's Day! I have a quick little post for you today! This is the Valentine I made for my sweet husband. He doesn't like flowers...unless they're in the garden, and he doesn't like anything frilly or fussy. I saw this fun sketch over on Jennifer's blog and decided to use it to create this card.

Of course, the red didn't come out true to color once I uploaded it. The heart frame is much darker IRL, and matches the glitter paper very well! Really it does! lol I used my Paper Tagger to attach the heart charm through an eyelet! It's a bit of pizzazz on an otherwise simple card! I decorated the inside but you won't be seeing that since I took the photo after writing the message to my husband! ;o)

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Love Letter, Cardstock;
Dies: MM Slice Design Card - Wedding (gift from Friday);
Punch: Martha Steward - Heartbeat;
Stamp: Gina K Designs;
Charm and Eyelet: From My Stash;
Tool: Paper Tagger.

  6. Nancy,
    I am so impressed with the eyelet for the charm. Don't you hate it when everything matches and the camera makes it look like a person with thier eyes closed picked the colors?
    It is a lovely work of art.
    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours; we love that you have taken time to share your wonderful work with us at Word Art Wednesday.
