Valentines Card

Valentines cards are SO not my thing. I see all those fabulous+striking+gorgeous looking cards out there, with glitter and lace, pearls and swirls, the sweetest of images and lovely pinks! I won't even try and recreate something like that, I think I'd end up losing all confidence even trying, so I made a rather clean one, with more blue than red and pink! Phew - glad I only have one man in my life! But now I have a whole year ahead of me to practice for next year's Valentine card!

I used a digi from Darcy's Diaries, colored with Promarkers, adding glitter glue to her wings and glossy accent to the heart, a ticket sentiment, some kraft leftover hearts and an embossed paper which I've sanded.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Come and Get It Challenges - Show Us Your Heart
2) Digi Haven – Love/Valentines
3) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

So gorgeous Pia. I love that image and the various sizes of hearts look so effective as a border.
I know what you mean about making Valentine's cards. I had never made one before until I had too as Design Team cards.
Thank you for always leaving me such nice comments

Love that little border of hearts along the bottom of your great embossed cardstock.
The little shy girl with army boots is so cute...when my married daughter was 15 or 16, she had a great sense of style and used to wear Doc Martins with lace dresses! This image reminds me of her.

I just saw your card over at Digi Haven and I'm sure I'd have found it at MIM when checking too. Really great nice and clean cut card. I like that you went in a non-tradtional route. It looks great.

I love it Pia-great text embossing and such a cool idea for a Valentines. I think it is great to see something not pink or red!

cotnob said...

This is a fabulous Valentines card Pia, great image and your Kraft hearts are perfect embellishments.

Patricia St Martin said...

You are my kind of person, all Valentines day is for Hallmark, jewelry and candy places can make money. If I did not have my grand kids I would never make them. I sound like scrooge!!! We been married for 45 year and we do not need a day like this... Do you??? Glad you changed the color and love the embossing you did. The image Darcy's Diaries is just adorable and you colored her so pretty.

Cheryl said...

This may not be your usual style, but I think it is fabulous!

Beautiful, Pia! I love the simplicity, makes a refreshing change from the usual bells and whistles version. The perfect V-day card for a man. Now go practice for next year! LOL!
Thanks for taking the time to leave me a sweet comment.
