Valentines Card

For my Valentine Card  I used the papers I recently purchased from Crafter’s Companion US, located in a folder <Camden-Town(female)> on the  “MAG-CI3 Crafter's Inspiration Christmas Edition by Crafter's Companion”.  The items I used were “Paper10” and “Topper 1”.  I printed the “Paper 10” in 5x7 dimension I embossed it using a Darice “Valentines Heart” and added some dimension by coloring the interior heart using Spectrum Noir BP5, PP5, & GB8, for the vines I used LG1, LG2 and TN1 and for the outer heart I used TN7. Next I mounted it on paper from the DCWV Lace and Linen stack  using AD Tech “permanent bond glue runner” and Fussy cut the hearts from the ”topper 10”  and the paisley birds and flowers from one of the large hearts. I also cut out tan flower from the same DCWV stack.  I used pearl hearts that were left over from my wedding decorations and used hot glue gun to put over the little hearts I cut out. I used Silhouette “Swirled Vines”, “Lily Flourish (minus the lilies)”, and “Hummingbirds (which I put white glitter on)” and the words “Forever & Always”.  I assembled them together using 3-M Spray Adhesive on the vines and words, and 3-D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives and glue sticks.

A valentines day card.

I used a variety of sizzix products to make this Sizzix Movers & Shapers Pro Die Set - Card, A6 Gate Fold & Heart #2 Card.--I then used a fiskars punch to create the scallop on the edges.. Replaced the heart for the front with the Classic icons one and inked the edges with glitter (shows up better in person).

Inside I used Sizzix Sizzlits Die Set 3PK - Cupid Bow & Arrow w/Hearts SetSizzix Thinlits Die Set 7PK - Heart, Keys & TagsSizzix Bigz Die - Classic Icons,

I also stamped and heat embossed "you hold the key to my heart" inside (easier to see in person.

The paper is from DCWV.

Here is a birthday card I made for my husband's aunt.

 I used dcwv papers, spellbinders majestic elements (square), twisted metal (for scroll on front of square and tag).  The stamp was fiskars "butterfy magic", the butterfly was from Joy, and the scroll was from a download on my Silhouette.  I fussy cut the banners.  Thanks for looking.
