Be My Valentine???
Valentine’s Day is less than a month away so today I thought I’d make a card for this special occasion. Tiddly Inks just released a few new digi images and I think this little darling is absolutely adorable. She perfect not only for Valentine’s Day but I can see using her for Mother’s day, Birthdays, just about anytime you want to show someone you care about them.
For those of you that regularly follow my blog, you know how much I enjoy combining sketch and color challenges. Today’s card is no exception. I fell in love with My Time Made Easy’s color challenge. I don’t think I’ve ever used pink and navy together on a card before. I know it’s hard to tell but yes the matting is navy cardstock not black – you’ll just have to trust me!
Next I went through all of the sketch challenges that would allow me to highlight these colors. I didn’t want to use any designer papers just cardstock so I ran the pink cardstock through 3 different embossing folders – each on has a different texture to it. I think the sketch from Sketchy Colors is just perfect!
The sentiment was printed from my printer and added to the card. The ends of the sentiment are made by using a square punch and just snipping of the end of the cardstock at an angle. A few flowers were added to complete the card.
The Tiddly Ink’s digi not only comes with this adorable girl but it also comes with a digi sentiment! I wanted to use both but the sentiment didn’t work quite right with the sketch so I put a bit of a spin on to my card and made it into an easel card.
One of the fun things about an easel card is I get to decorate the inside of the card also. I hope you enjoyed stopping by and I hope you’ll stop back again soon! Dee
