4 Crafty Chicks Challenge # 76: Valentine's (Love)

Hello everyone and welcome to my second post as guest designer for 4 Crafty Chicks! This week the theme is Valentines/Love. I don’t know about you, but this is one theme I just never get tired of! There are so many ways you can incorporate ‘Love’ into your projects, and I personally love red and pink so I am loving all these love-y projects! :)

For my project this week I decided to create a card. I used this awesome image from Tiddly Inks. It’s a little hard to see in the picture, but the boy is a VAMPIRE, lol! I thought it was cute and romantic so I created the “I love you forever” sentiment on my computer to go with the image. Here is a better look:

 I created a border with an MS lace border punch and tied the ribbon with my bow easy. Ever since I got this tool I have been trying to find ways to add ribbon to everything, lol! I actually didn’t use ribbon all that oftern before I got this tool! I do realize that the sentiment is a little lopsided. I’m not very good at cutting in a straight line apparently, lol! I considered ripping the card apart to fix it, but I am of the school of thought that it’s the little imperfections that make a homemade card ‘homemade’.
I hope you have enjoyed my project, and please come join us at 4 Crafty Chicks with your Valentine and Love themed projects!

  1. Gorgeous Heather! I love the little play on words you have going on there with the Edward/Bella - like image. Super cool. And I never would have noticed the lopsided sentiment if you hadn't mentioned it. :)

  2. OOh I just adore your card! I found your blog through 4 Crafty Chicks. I just had to come by & tell you.
