Valentine Wishes

Monday, February 11, 2013

Hi Friends! I hope you had a good weekend and got in some crafting time. I spent a lot of time trying to organize my dies into a different system. I'm about halfway finished, but I need to wrap it up. It's really hard trying to make a card when dies are all over the place. ;)

As you can see, I've made another Valentine's card, and like the last one, I used all digital dp. The image is a digital stamp, also. It doesn't show up well in the photo, but the Hearts Circle die cut has glitter on the heart border.

Here's a close up of the fancy stitching I did between the two layers.

It was fun to "color" this image in my photo program. I used some of the same digi paper (that I used to make the card) for the envelope, heart, dress, shoes, and hairband. For the hair, I filled it with a brown color, then used the texture effects feature to give it a textured look. After die cutting the image, I used Spun Sugar to sponge inside the die.

The inside is simple, with a sponged, tilted panel and sweet sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit, and have a fantastic week!

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
Design House Digital Valentine's Day Card Contest: Kids Hybrid Card
