Hope you are all well on this Friday evening. I am finally feeling as though my cold is trying to wave goodbye. I actually managed a reasonable night's sleep last night. As we have been hit by the snow today I am planning a stay at home weekend. If all goes to plan I will be spending tomorrow in my pyjamas all day. Don't you just love pyjama days, well, I do anyway lol.
As Valentines Day is approaching I thought I had better make a start as I have a few birthdays in February too. This card is for my sister to give to her husband. Didn't want something too over the top and full of embellishments. I decided to try something clean and simple. I got the idea for the heart from a card making magazine that I bought recently.
I made a 3d heart by cutting out five heart shapes from red card. These were then folded in half, glued together and attached to a square of white card. I then went around the heart using a black pen to do some faux stitching. The rest of the card was very straightforward using black card and red glitter card for the matting. The sentiment was stamped using a sentiment that I have had for ages. I added some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and a pearl heart and some heart gems.
Here is another angle of the heart.
I really like the way this turned out even though I was so tempted to add more embellishments. Clean and simple does not come easy to me lol.
Thanks for popping by and hope you all have a good weekend.
