Valentines Day

A post is long over due and I am sorry I have been AWOL for a while. The holidays and illness has kept from crafting much.   I do have a few cards I would like to share with you today.  Valentines Day is just around the corner and many still make or purchase cards for their loved ones.   Texts and emails just don’t have the same effect as a card or written note does.   I  Love the written word.  I have many written love notes and special cards that I treasure.   Send me a card for any occasion and I will treasure it.  Send me a text or email instead for my birthday or mothers day or any other occasion and I will be very  to disappointed.  It’s just the way I am.

Everyday is a good day to tell someone you love them or they are in your thoughts.  Life is short and one never knows if tomorrow will be another day here.  So take a moment to let those loved ones know you love them, say it, write it and do something fun together.

I am in love with how this card turned out.  This is the front of the card and the saying is from JustRite Circle of Love Vintage Labels Three stamp set.  Still available in the shop.   The large pink oval is from Spellbinders Oval Set.  The ivory oval shape is JustRite Nested Cloud and Tag Die Set, that is also  available.   Paper is from K & Company, Brendon Walton Designer.  Love this paper pad it is 8.5 x 8.5 two sided with beautiful coordinating papers.  Top it with a hand made bow and emblishment in the center of the bow, a rose from Wild Orchid Mulberry Paper Roses.  They have the best flowers.

This is the inside of the card.  For the large saying I used a stamp from Michaels Craft Store, it does not have a manufacturers name on it.  The small saying is from a JustRite True Friends Vintage Labels Four stamp set, that is available in the shop.  The rose is a Memory Box Die called  Pennington Rose # 99143 .  I love how there leaves have great detail.  The rose is in too pieces so you can have a layered effect.

This Pennington Rose also has  other blossoms,  there is a corner die and a border die to match.  You can find them in the shop under Memory Box 2015 dies .

The oval die is a Spellbinders regular oval die set.

Above it the inside of the card.  Same paper form K & Company and it goes so nicely with the Raspberry Stamp n Up card stock.  The saying is from the same JustRite stamp set.  The oval is the small size from a spellbinders regular oval die set. The fancy layer is from Tattered Lace Victorian Frame die I used on the front of the card.  The center cuts out separately.  I also used another piece of the die to cut out the corner pieces in each corner.
