Romantic Valentine AW08 Sketch Challenge

I made this card based on a Sketch for the “Around the World Challenge AW08”. If you like my card, you can click on this link and go vote for it!!!

I always like to use Black, Red and Gold to make a romantic Valentine’s Day card.  These colors are so rich together, it’s always a winning combination!

Language of Love

I used the new Stamp set from the Occasions mini-catalogue called “Language of Love” to stamp the hearts in the center. One was embossed with gold embossing powder and the second with Black embossing powder. I then used Cherry Cobbler ink and sponge it to on the second heart to make it really stand out!  I also used the Banner Blast stamp set (that you can get for free as one of the Sale-a-Bration set, starting January 28) and the “Hearts a Flutter” stamp set for the smaller pennant at the bottom, also embossed with gold embossing powder.

Do you like the new Gold Sequin? You can buy it as a trim to add some “bling” to your projects!  It’s on p.23 of the mini-catalogue. (Item #132983). You get 10 yards for $6.50.  You can also take the sequin off the trim and glue them separately like I did on this card. Really cool new accessory!

  2. […] Love is in the air today! Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you have someone you love to spend it with!  Today, I would like to shae a card we made at my last monthly card (for the Valentine’s Day theme). This card was based on another card I made before that was quite ambitious for a monthly card class, so I changed it a bit… (You can see the other one here.) […]
