I love to give Valentine's cards to friends. I don't always get everyone every year, but Valentine's Day to me is about love and friendship. So while I do celebrate it with my husband, I love to make some cards for my friends too! Remember exchanging Valentines in school? Love it!
Today's card was so fun to make! I love stamps from The Greeting Farm! They are so fun to colour! I used every Copic that I own on this card (I only own 18)! Most of the edges are distressed and inked. The heart in the corner was cut by hand out of Basic Grey's Olivia Patterned Paper.
The photo corner was punched out of paper from the Olivia collection. Then I punched the same photo corner out of some acetate from some old packaging (I love recycling!). Then I ran the acetate photo corner through my Cuttlebug using the Tim Holtz Crackle Texture Fade. I swiped the edges of the photo corner with Stampin' Up's White Craft Ink. It is secured to the card with some SU brads.
One of my favourite elements on the sticker page for the Olivia collection is this lacy photo frame. I cut just one side off to use on the edge of my image.
Make sure you check out the sneak peek over at Hambo Hoedown! The fun starts tomorrow!
I hope you love today's card as much as I do! Have a fantastic day!
