My last Valentine’s card for this year….good thing it was to be delivered after the 14th, too….or it wouldn’t have been done!! I printed the image, Cute Heart Valentine’s, from Star Stampz, very, very small (<2″), then, rather than wasting ALL THAT paper, I proceeded to color, with my breath held the whole time!! It got particularly dicey when I had to abandon the brush tips of my Copics, and turn to my bullet nip SNs!!
I messed around with the layout and the papers for what seemed like forever, until I settled on the heart print paper, that came as a freebie in a magazine years ago, and saw this sketch, at Sketch Saturday:
I used other elements from the same freebie paper pad to make up the other parts of the sketch. I punched 2 hearts from a red print, and edged it with white stitching detail, and made a label “thingy” to back the letters. I edged the label with the gel pen stitch detail, and attached it to the card with a couple silver brads. I’m so happy with how this turned out, especially as I was in a bit of a panic less than 2 hours before I had to deliver the card!!
