Valentine for my Husband

Hello Everyone,

This is the Valentine’s card that I gave to my husband yesterday. I am finally able to post this card to my blog; I didn’t want to post it yesterday because I didn’t want my husband to see it before I gave the card to him. I wanted to keep it as simple as possible, so I didn’t put any ribbon or embellishments on it.

I used the kiss technique for this card and I like the way that it turned out. I inked the Love Confetti stamp (E3730) with Victorian Velvet distress ink and the Antique Brocade (CG102) with Forest Moss distress ink and “kissed” them together and then stamped the Love confetti stamp onto white cardstock. I decided that the “with love” stamp and the sentiment stamp went together perfectly. The stamp used on the scalloped panel is the Envelope Pattern S5507 and the sentiment is Wavy From My Heart F3912. I am entering this in the Hero Arts Flickr group monthly challenge, February2011B.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Take care and have a great day.

You did a good job of keeping it simple enough for a man, but all the added details make this a very special card, Sue!
