I decided to make my card a valentines day card as a colleague had asked me to make one.
For this card, I used a 6 inch square card base, and to this I added two designer papers, the top one from Papermania's Nostalgia Warm collection (DP1), and the bottom one from a K & Company 6x6 scrapbook designer paper pack (DP2).
I wanted to cover the join, but had no ribbon that matched, so out came my trusty burgundy promarker. In no time the yellow grosgrain ribbon from my stash was transformed! I made a small bow out of the same coloured ribbon, and attached it (embellishment 1) using pinflair glue gel.
The image was from a sheet in my stash which I had printed off from a cd I belive, but unfortunately, I have no clue which one it was!
I then stamped two hearts (embellishment 2 and 3) from a See D's ready to cling stamp set using my flitterglu, and covered them with metallic gilding flakes. As this was a bespoke card, I put the happy couple's initials in the centre of the hearts.
On the ribbon I spelled out the word Valentine using gold peel off letters. Finally, I cut out two shapes using my nesties from the off cut of the top designer paper. I coloured the edge of the larger of the two shapes using the burgundy pen, and stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in the centre of the smaller. Before I layered them up, I used the flitterglu and flake combination around the very edge of the larger shape to gild it and make it stand out. When layered, I attached it to the card using pinflair gel.
The very final touch was some gold peel off photo corners attached to the corners of the card base.
