Happy Valentine's Day

Friday, February 14, 2014

Hi there!
Happy Valentine's day!

Today I wanted to share my Valentine card for my husband with you:-)

So as usual, this is a simple and fast card. 
I used a couple of my favorite retired tools because they were just right for what I was going for.

I just love burlap, so rustic, so organic...
I actually took off the hems and pulled out a couple of pieces of burlap to give the ribbon a rough look. 

I sponged the edge of every piece on this card with Crumb Cake, even the Crochet Trim, for a vintage feel.

My notes...
Paper: Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral
Ink: Crumb Cake
Accessory: 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon, 5/8" Crochet Trim, Rhinestones Basic Jewel
Tool: Expressions Thinlits Die, Heart to Heart Punch (Retired), Crimper (Retired), Sponge

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
