VALENTINE

Hello and happy Monday.
My card for today was inspired by the wonderful new Valentines word files you can find over at The Cutting Cafe! I printed the Valentines directly onto the Basic Grey Designer paper and tucked that underneath the other panels. This way i had my Sentiment added to the card and i did not had to worry where else to add. The Basic Grey paper is one of the lines from last year but oh is it pretty.. it matches perfectly the pink Ribbon strings you will receive in your Raspberry Ribbon kit for next month. You should check it out.. you will get all kinds of fresh Spring colors in that one :-)
After a long time i have made my own envelope using one of the big 12x12 sheets of the same line Basic Grey paper. Come back a little later once i have all the photos edited and the text ready to see how it is created - yes... lol i did have my memory card this time in the camera :-)
Here is the decorated inside of the card. To add the sentiment i used a piece of the Basic Grey rose paper with a little pattern on but not overpowering so the Sentiment will still stand out. It is hard to see but here is a little Victorian (Perlmutt - i don't know the English word for that) heart as decoration added as well. The frame is high lightened with Stickles you can find this and Basic Grey Papers at Summers store!
Embellishments: Ribbons by Raspberry Ribbons, Stickles, victorian embellishments found at Archivers and Joann, Prima Marketing, Martha Stewart
This handmade card is for sale :-) Thank you for swinging by! xxx
