Good morning! I've been busy making some Valentine's Day cards and this is one of the cards I made for the Creative Crew challenge on Splitcoast stampers. My card actually fits 2 of the Creative Crew challenges this month, to use a doily and to create a Valentine's Day card.
I also made this card for the inspiration challenge for our ABC blog challenge this week and that challenge is an inspiration challenge using the theme of candy hearts. Your inspiration could include fun or mushy sentiment, pastel colors, little hearts or whatever else you think of when you think of Candy Hearts. I went with the heart theme for my Valentine's Day card.
My background is dry embossed using the perfect polka dots embossing folder. I have four banners placed towards the left side of my card. I used my 1" square punch to notch out the V part of the banner. It's so much easier to notch out the end using the square punch.
To create the red heart I punched out the heart using the full heart punch and real read card stock. Then I used the same full heart punch and I punched out the heart shape using a doily I had cut out from the Paper Doily Sizzlits. It's hard to see in my photo so I wanted to point out that I added some glitter on the punched doily heart.
I hope you like my Valentine card and we'd love to have you play along with the Creative Crew at Splitcoast Stampers and over at the ABC Challenge blog! Have a great day!
