Sharing this cute little card which was an early Valentine treat for the ladies at my Make and Take/Book Signing at Scrapbooker's Paradise north store yesterday. What a wonderful group of ladies both the participants and the staff! Although we did not create this card, the instructions were made available to the Toonie Thursday participants through the cooperative effort of Scrapbookers Paradise north store manager, Angela, and myself. All of the supplies are available at Scrapbooker's Paradise so go visit Angela and let her know that Sharon sent you.
Well we are just a bit over a month from Valentine's day, before you know it the day will have come and gone. So, now is the time to create your Valentine's. This particular card would be perfect for the guys or the gals, because of the colors and the different patterns it retains a strong look. I am sure the guys will not mind the little bit of beautiful metallic thread that adorns the smallest heart. I think the thread gives this card a bit of a pop. Try stamping a pattern onto the die cut letters (Tim Holtz Vintage Market die) it helps to make the x and the o pop as well. I love all of the different patterns in this card. The die cut hearts and frame are from Spellbinder's. I wanted a larger polka dot on the frame so I embossed it in an embossing folder. Hope this card inspires you to start creating!
Here is a sneak peek of a portion of the card that we are making on January 19th, 2012 at Scrapbooker's Paradise North store (Crowfoot). I hope you will join me between the hours of 11 am to 4 pm. This card is perfect for a guy or a gal, sometimes we find it difficult to create Valentine's for the guys in our life so take this opportunity to be inspired. The cute flap fold on the front is a great technique for many occasions and on the inside we of course make use of a tea bag fold in honor of my book Tea Bag Folding Through The Seasons!
Hope to see you!
