Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I am getting ahead of the game this year by creating a card for my sweetheart using the beautiful Echo Park Paper You and Me collection.
A pair of swans (cut from the Swan Lake Love paper) are “swimming” on the sketched oval shape from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper.
I adhered the oval to the narrow floral card from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper so that the flowers peek out on either side. I emphasized the flowers by tucking in more florals created with the Love You Floral Die Set and Ultra White Designer Felt Cardstock.
Next, I cut the “Love You” sentiment from the same die set using Gold Shimmer and Ebony Black Felt Designer cardstocks. I offset the layers slightly giving the gold paper a shadow layer underneath.
Finally, I added the “You Have My Heart” sticker above the swan and added tiny gems in the corners for a bit of sparkle.
Will you be making your sweetheart a handmade card for Valentine’s Day this year?
I’m hopping on today with a quick Christmas card share using the Cottage Cutz Jolly Cardinal die set. I LOVE this cute little bird sitting on his snowy branch!
I chose to cut him out in blue for this card, but you could also cut him out in red to be a Christmas cardinal, white or pink for wedding or Valentine’s day, yellow for springtime, or even black for Halloween!
I hope you are enjoying this holiday season and spending lots of time making memories with your loved ones.
See you again soon!
