Valentine's Day Card



Well, I spent some time today trying to come up with a card that I hoped my husband would like. I tried my best to make a card that he would like. I chose a stamp that I knew he liked (I think he may have picked it out!) and colors that would appeal to him. I really got to play around. Let me tell you, I must have stamped the image out half a dozen times with different effects until I got what I wanted. I ended up brayering Sandy Beach glimmer mist on white cardstock, then heat drying, then brayering Pewter Radiant Rain, then heat dry again. Finally I was able to stamp my image! Love that couple! On the inside I again used glimmer mist. I believe I used Jasper Red and Sandy Beach. Then after heat drying, I used my Sizzix Top Note die from SU! and cut out the pattern. I love how it turned out, and because I couldn't wait, I gave it to him early! Happy Valentine's Day, Brett!
