I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas so far, with more relaxation now that the big day has has been and gone. I managed to get a little crafting time this morning whilst everyone else was sleeping off some of the excesses of yesterday, and I decided to play along with the PTI December blog hop. The challenge is to use some of the Christmas leftovers on a card and as a lot of our wrapping paper and ribbon was red, I chose to make a Valentine card:-
I cut the card shape from my Cricut 'Wild Card' cartridge and stamped the lower half with all the stamps in the PTI Background Basics 'Hearts' set. I then die cut some hearts out of some used snowflake wrapping paper with Sizzix dies and matted them onto red card.
I threaded some leftover ribbon through one of the hearts and stuck it down with my ATG gun. I didn't glue down the top layer of paper heart, but just used the ribbon to hold down the centre to add more dimension.
I chalked the edges of the card to soften the whiteness a little, used some red heart gems to highlight the hearts and finished off with a sentiment from PTI Signature Series 'Flower'. I am hoping that the snowflake design of the paper is geometric enough to look a little like flowers but what the heck, we may still be having snow in February, so it doesn't really matter.
Thanks for looking in and enjoy the rest of the holidays.
