Valentines Day

Here is the card I have made for my DH. I hope he likes it.

The Card

The insert
 The card is an A4 card blank. I printed out a coordinating backing sheet from the Crafters Companion Popcorn Romance CD to cover the whole of the front of the card and the identical backing sheet was used on the inside of the card. I cut down a sheet of red heart embossed card that came from the Glitter Girls and the added a cut down backing sheet onto it, again it came from the CD. All of the papers have been outlined with holographic peeloffs (Glitter Girls) or fine line peeloffs (Pinflair).

I printed out a decoupage sheet of Biscuit the dog onto glossy photo paper for the main image and layered up the images using good old Pinflair glue gel. A little crystal heart embellishment finished off the sentiment to a 'T'.

I stamped a verse from Clarity Stamps onto cream pearlised card and used red glitz WOW embossing powder. The card was cut down to size and then matted onto red crushed jewels card from the Glitter girls.

A bit of satin ribbon across the background, a bow made from a sheer ribbon and some hand made button embellishments were added. The buttons were printed from a My Crafts Studio free download. I changed the colour to red and resized them to fit the corners of the card. Using versamark and some Cosmic Shimmer Thick embossing powder, I added a glossy finish to them before sticking them on the card.

The insert is the matching one from the Popcorn CD, matted onto pearlised red card and peeloffs used to accent all the edges.

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
