Happy Valentine's Day!!

The day is finally here. Happy Valentine's Day!! I am going to post the last two cards for this "holiday."

The inspiration for both these cards were Cameo die cuts that I bought from the Silhouette web site. These cards are for Project Life but I think they are perfect for cards.

My first card I combined Bo Bunny and Doodlebug products to create a cute Valentine card. The main image is a die cut that I overlaid on a piece of white card sock and then filled with the red sequins.

I used a Doodlebug Valentine ticket with a Bo Bunny sticker mounted on adhesive foam for the sentiment. This card was so simple but has a big impact, don't you agree?


My second card was a bit more time consuming. Again, I die cut the main image. I laid it over a piece of card stock that had different patterns of Washi tape that were adhered to it in an ombre color scheme. Light pink at the bottom with red at the top.

The heart die cut was adhered with foam adhesive so the tape is more in the background.

I then looped pink twine around the card, tied a red tag and button. I then mounted the whole thing against a white card that I had adhered Doodlebug heart paper too. The card needed a little something so the last thing I did was to adhere a flag to the front. I LOVE how this card came out!! I think it is my favorite of all the ones I created this year.

I hope this day is filled with love and chocolate!! Happy Valentine's Day!1

Great Valentines!!!! I love the sequins on your first card! Oh that takes some time to stick all those sequins! I can never get them off my fingers! Love the fun design of your second with the washi tape behind the heart! Love the heart BG too!!!

These are both brilliant, Nora ... I completely love the dotty heart ... the dimension, the balance, the ombré washi behind ... fantastic! Anita :)

These are both great Valentines, Nora, but I have to agree with you, that dotty heart is superb with the ombre layered Washi tape peeking through!! That would have been enough for me, but you are more creative and adding that flag took it over the top!! I hope your Valentine's Day was excellent fun! Hugs, Darnell
