Hubby's Valentines Card

Hi everyone.  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Andy came home on Friday for the weekend, so we went out on a date night last night, to one of our favourite restaurants.  I wanted to show you the Valentines card I made for him.  I couldn't put it on my blog before I had given it to him, as he does occasionally check my blog :-)

I used the sketch from Deconstructing Jen to make my card.  I really liked this, after seeing Jessica's card on her blog, Chick-n-Scrap, using this sketch.

DS137 by the Deconstructed Sketch

Here is my card for hubby.  I am really not very good with sketches, as I think I tend to stick to them literally!  I am pleased with this one though, although I think I could have added some brads or something.

The papers were from a Momenta 6" by 6" paper stack (sorry I couldn't find a name anywhere), the papers for the hearts and flags were from a My Minds Eye 6" by 6", Love Me. The sentiment stamp is a Studio G stamp.

The hearts were from a cut file by Miss Kate Cuttables called Love Titles, just using the heart shape, cut 5 times with my Silhouette Cameo and then joined together.  I was inspired by Karen, at Kaleidoscopic Sparkles, she placed one of these hearts on her beautiful tag.

For the inside I used the same papers as the front and the sentiments are from a Doodlebug Designs set, called Love.

And finally one more look at the front :-)

Have a fabulous day everyone.
