I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day. I enjoy day's like this as it gives me a good excuse to make a card for someone special in my life. I am a great believer that it is a day to be thankful for the people that we love and hold dear and close to us. In my case is it my wonderful partner who is my greatest support especially of my paper crafting. Anyway this is the card I designed.
I used the Forever Lovely stamp set, Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with the Lovely Lipstick Card, Well Written Framelits using Olive Green and Lovely Lipstick card, and the Rectangle Stitched Framelits on Whisper White card. The card base is Whisper White Thick card 210mm x 148mm and scored at 105mm and the Heart paper is from the All My Love Designer Series Paper 142mm x 99mm. The hearts on the Whisper White Card rectangle is stamped with the stamp in the Forever Lovely stamp set and I used Pink Pirouette and Lovely Lipstick ink pads.

The inside of the card I stamped the words from Forever Lovely and stamped with Lovely Lipstick ink pad.
The heart in the corner was cut out using some of the left over hearts after cutting out the rectangle as I had stamped an area on Whisper White card larger than the rectangle. I used the heart from Well Written Framelits and then used dimensionals to 3D it.

The flowers and stem are from the Well Written Framelits and I cut them out using Olive Green and Lovely Lipstick card. In the middle of the flowers I used a pearl. The other leaves, sentiment and hearts on the sentiment banner are from the Forever Lovely stamp set and cut out using the Lovely Flowers Edgelits. I cut out the sentiment with a rectangle from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

I was given this chocolate by one of our EA's at work.... I thought this was a lovely gesture to share the love and friendship we have.

I can see the card design being used for an anniversary or a wedding card..... or maybe a mother's day card.

I hope you enjoyed the design. If you have any queries please feel free to leave me a comment.... or just leave a comment, would love to hear from you. All the products can be purchased from my online store, just click on the Shopping Cart.

Thank you for reading and until next time have a lovely day😃

January has been a busy month in the craft room.  I had two cards to make, one for a very good friend and one for my sister-in-law.  Below are the two cards I made using some old stock I have and some of the new products from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

 The base card is Whisper White Thick Cardstock 210mm x 148mm and scored at 105mm.  The pick cardstock is some old stock I had laying around, it is very similar to Peekaboo Pink.  It measures 142mm x 99mm and then I embossed it using one of my favourite embossing folders, Tufted, just love the quilted look it gives.  I then added some pearls.... just on the parts that would be seen.  The glimmer leaf is punched out using the Leaf punch and Myths & Magic Glimmer paper which you still can purchase through the clearance rack.  The label and sentiment are from the Stitched All Around Bundle... this has been a favourite of mine and have used it on a few projects.  The roses are stamped from the Cake Soirée stamp set and cut out using the Sweet Cake Framelits.  I used Olive Green for the leaves and stamped using Lovely Lipstick.  The butterflies are from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  The Bundle is called Butterfly Gala and it includes a stamp set and a duet punch.  It is a lovely set and the punch and butterfly stamps match up perfectly.  I embossed the butterflies with gold embossing powder and coloured them in using my Lovely Lipstick Blender pens in the dark and light.  I used dimensionals for the sentiment, the roses and butterflies.

This is the card I sent to my girlfriend.  I added the J using the Gold Glimmer paper and the Large Letters Framelits to personalise it.

The card above is the same as the one at the top except I used the new embossing folder out of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue called the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.   This is such a beautiful embossing folder, I can see it being used for many of my projects.  I placed the pearls in the centre of the flowers.

To personalise it for my sister-in-law I added the K using again the Gold Glimmer paper and the Large Letters Framelits.
