Well good morning everyone! I'm sorry I haven't posted all week. I think my mojo left me again. As much as I wanted to stamp & colour I just couldn't find it in me to do it. So this morning I was up bright and early 6:20, grabbed a coffee and decided I was going to make a card before heading off to church.
I wanted to make a Valentine card for my son Mark and fiancee Anna. I pulled out some Verve stamps and dies and went to town. I found a sketch layout to use and this is what I came up with.
I had this done in 20 min!
Sentiment is from Verve - stronger love which was stamped in black versafine ink. I used the rounded scallop frame from Verve, cut it out twice, once using dp, and once on cream c/s. I replaced the center part of the dp and put in the cream and stamped my sentiment on that.
Flag stax is a MFT die, and the scallop border on top is a spellbinder die.
To finish this off I used my wink of stella pen to go around the edges of the cream sentiment where it inlays to the scallop border, cut some leaves from vellum, a couple of hearts, then added some sequins, a glittery enamel dot then tied some seam binding ribbon around the top to pull this all together.
There you have it 20 min from start to finish! Inside the card I stamped Happy Valentines Day!
