Happy Valentine's Day

Hello crafters!  I have an easy and fun Valentine's card to share today.  Using the Noble Decorative Hearts die set, I cut the smallest die out of custard, aqua, duck egg blue, powder pink and amethyst card several times.  I glued them randomly all over the card.  Next I cut three sequentially sized  larger hearts and stacked them in the centre of the card.  I cut the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment in black and glued it to the centre heart.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue I love the fact that this inspirational valentines sample made me smile as soon as it loaded, I know that traditional cards are red but I love change and any change that makes me smile lifts my heart and spirit, the chosen colours still say 'love' but it's light and airy and happy and certainly way out of the traditional box I love it.
Hope everyone is feeling as well as possible and keeping safe xxx said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you this is a lovely happy card.
Take care and have fun Kitty.
