I love you

Hello my friends! I made a Pink Valentine card last night, my husband told me it is pretty, LOL, that means that card is not for me, right?  and not, this is not the card for him.
My inspiration for this card comes from Tuesday Trigger and other several blog challenges.


Directions:
  • Make card base from White Cardstock. (5.5" x 4.25")
  • Cut a piece of Pink Cardstock (5.25" x 4"), cut a piece of Patterned Paper (4 7/8" x 3.75"), ink all edges and mat together. Cut out stripes of Melon Cardstock (1.5"x 4 7/8" and 2" x 3.25"). Adhere to patterned paper and add straight stitches.
  • Stamp image onto White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. Color it with Copic Markers. Die-cut it with Rectangle Nestabilities, emboss and stencil.
  • Stamp sentiment in Espresso Ink.
  • Add image with foam tape.
  • Stick ribbon around, make a bow and add it.
  • Add Paper roses.
  • Cover colored hands with Crystal Lacquer and set to dry.
