Valentine Card for My Hubby




This card is for my husband for Valentine's Day. I got the inspiration from Leanne, a member of Emma's Design team (creativetimeforme.com). She got the directions from a tutorial on valitasfreshfolds.blogspot.com. I watched the video and then did things a little bit differently. Instead of punches I used the heart on Create a Critter and I did not put the extra circles under the dress of the lady. I love these hearts so much I can tell I will be using them for quite a few projects in the future!

I will be entering this card in the Cricut Cardz Challenge
Materials:
Patterned Paper - Garden Vignettes DCWV
Cardstock - True Black Papertrey Ink, Red, Grey and Black from my stash
Create-a-Critter Cartridge for hearts and frames
black ribbon for tie
Irock and gems
Sentiment - You Had Me at Chocolate from Emma's Creative Time
Stick on pearl for dress
Black fibers from my stash

Thank you for taking the time to look at my post. I appreciate all comments and my followers are the best!!! Lots of Love, Cathryn

This card is terrific. I'm going to check out the video right now so I can see how you did it. I can't believe the curves under the woman's dress. I have to learn how to do that. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm following you now also.
