So enough blabbing, on to my sweet little Valentine card. Valentine stuff (décor, colors, cards, etc) doesn't really blow my skirt up. I like to have sweet, fun things for the kids to take to school. And I'll do a little something for Big Daddy, but I don't typically embrace this holiday. It's too much red right after Christmas or something. ? And I'm a red lover! :) BUT, I did jump on a 6x6 pack of Echo Park paper called Head Over Heels. I loved the colors because there is a lot of gray and light turquoise blue with the red, pink, and black. And, the patterns were so cute -- almost any of them could be used for occasions other than Valentine's.
Since the theme over at the Curtain Call Inspiration challenge is Love Letters, I did go with Valentine's this time and paired it with this week's Freshly Made Sketch.
I love the diagonal sketch provided this week!
I mostly let the paper do the work this time, but did add some stamping because I couldn't sleep at night if I haven't stamped at least a little something on each card.
The solid paper is lightly stamped with Hero Arts Envelope Pattern background stamp in CTMH Crystal Blue. I stamped the speech bubbles from PTI's Bubble Talk in Wild Hare pigment ink (ColorBox), and the Blush and Tulip dye ink (CTMH). I trimmed them and adhered the smaller two with 3-D foam tape. I stamped a solid stripe from PTI's Super Stripes and added a row of CTMH Ruby Chevron washi tape before I laid down the speech bubbles.
I feel like I am finally getting back into my crafty groove and it's been the most fun! Thank you for stopping by to visit! Please come back anytime! =)
