Valentine's Day is fast approaching so this week at Joan's Gardens, our challenge is to create a Valentine for someone special.
Here are the requirements for this challenge:
For my Valentine, I chose to use the new Memory Box "Bingham Heart". I love the dainty details in this heart. It was die cut using green card stock then again using pink. All the little pink flowers were sniped off and glued onto the green heart. I die cut a solid heart using the MFT "Layered Heart" die and glued the Bingham Heart along the edges. The reason I die cut the solid heart is because the background piece was embossed with the eBosser "Gracious Argyle" embossing folder and it would have been hard to stamp the pretty sentiment from the Our Daily Bread "Sentiments Collection" on the embossing. On the Left side of the card I added the Memory Box "Contempo Circle Border". In the right side corners, I added a Cheery Lynn die cut corner. When I stamped the sentiment, the little hearts were outlined in black, so I used the Martha Stewart "Loops Heart" corner punch to get the little pink hearts to glue in the center of the three hearts stamped in the sentiment. The three little hearts from that punch fit perfectly. To complete the card, I added Kaiser Craft pink rhinestones along the left side and in the center of the flowers.
I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I am sure there is someone special you who would love to receive a Valentine from you.
