My Hubby - My Valentine!
There's a little bit of a story to this card. My husband generally opens the post and as he calls me a squirrel because I never throw anything away. He puts aside any envelopes with interesting insides that he thinks I might want to use.
Well on Thursday I made this card with the inside of an evelope which he'd saved earlier in the morning. A few days before I'd been watching Hochanda and they were selling Cascade cards so I decided to
have a go at making one.
So - here is my Valentine's card for my husband using the envelope (and yes, he did recognise it). I also used my new set of Tim Holtz dies called Scribbles and Splates . I added a little sparkle to the heart with a Sakura pen, although it doesn't show in the photo and the splat which was far too big was cut into pieces and separated to fit the card.
I used a Hero Arts set of stamps for the sentiment and the small hearts .
One of the strips of envelope wasn't quire long enough so I cut it in half for the front piece and left a small gap behind the sentiment but I think it works quite well.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
