I'm sure you noticed that I have backed my doily's center with some pink cardstock.
The scalloped heart was cut from some pink glitter paper with a Darice die.
I added a strip of the glitter paper across the bottom with a couple of melted pony beads.
I didn't take a picture of it, but on the inside I added another glittery heart and a simple "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment.
Here's another Valentine with lots of glittery goodness. The hearts are dimensional stickers. I backed them with some white cardstock to help them show up better and added some red sequins for extra sparkle. The sentiment stamp is from a really old set (not sure of the make) and it's been heat-embossed with red embossing powder.
.Here's a closer look at all that sparkle. And speaking of sparkle, I added a strip of double-sided tape where the two different papers join and sprinkled it with red glitter.
Because this stamp isn't big enough to cover the entire front of the card, I had to stamp it several times. I was really quite amazed that you can't tell where the design stopped and started again.
I will definitely be using this stamp again for cute backgrounds like this.
The hearts and circles were punched out and adhered to my banner. Then I added a tiny red gem to each heart.
Here is the inside of my card - another punched heart and a matted sentiment.
Pretty simple, but I loved how it turned out.
Did you get all your Valentines made and sent? It's wonderful to be retired and have the time to make cards for so many of the special people in my life.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
