I know Valentine’s Day is over, but I had one more card to share with you. In fact, this card doesn’t really need to be a Valentine’s Day card. You could just use it for telling someone you love them on any day.
The day before Valentine’s Day, my husband asked me if I had made a card for him to give me. OK, really??? No, I really didn’t think of making myself a card … I was pretty busy making everyone else I know cards and gifts. But, you have to understand that my husband is a CPA. He’s super busy right now. And, he did buy me a gift AND make me dinner on Valentine’s Day. So, I really didn’t expect anything else.
But, I have to admit that he looked a little sad that he didn’t have a card to give me. Most of the time, I have so many extra cards laying around that all he has to do is grab one and he’s good. This year, I actually counted how many cards I needed and didn’t make any extras. So, I decided to whip up a quick card for myself. What the heck, right?
I’ve done some similar cards to this with the Bloomin’ Love photopolymer bundle. I really like watercoloring, so I just decided to do it again but change up the colors a little and use a lot of the goodies from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit. That kit is chalked full of pretty little things that can really make a card look great in seconds.
I cut my lacy heart out of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper, and I’m not sure if it came out well in the photos, but I actually layered some glimmer flowers on top of the heart for some added depth. I just adore those enamel glitter dots so I used three to finish the flowers.
The pre-tied bow on a paper clip, string of pearls, Blushing Bride satin ribbon and sequin all come in the embellishment kit. So, I stacked them and added a banner I created with a little scrap of watercolor paper and a Bloomin’ Love stamp.
Then to finish the card, I stamped some flowers from Bloomin’ Love and sponged the edges. This whole card took me about a half an hour to make. This is why I love embellishment kits. When I’m in a hurry to just get something done, I can use the coordinating elements, not really have to think much, and come up with a great looking card.
Oh, and I loved my card:) (Wink)
