With Valentine's Day so near, I thought I'd share another card for that with you today!
I tell ya... this card was a true experiment... experiment in my patience! LOL! I struggled with the elements and layers for hours and finally gave up and settled For this end result. It truly isn't my favourite creation... by far but I do like the concept of it. Maybe I'll give the whole hanging lockets thing another go soon.
For all the lockets, I used the super, duper cute "Simply Charming" stamp set. I actually cut them out using the their accompanying "Simply Charming" Silhouette Cut file, using Classic White Cardstock and then I found some totally cute Valentine's themed papers and knew I had to use them too, so I stamped each locket image again with Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink onto the individual patterned papers and fussy cut them and attached them to my cut files. I stamped the cute little "Will U B Mine?" sentiment from the "Tokens of Affection" stamp collection using Memento "Rhubarb Stalk" ink. One them even includes the definition for "heart"... awwww!
Then I took some Silver Metallic String and "hung" them on the strands (popped them up with foam) to make them appear in mid-air. I strung them within the window I cut in the patterned paper and cardstock and voila... a Valentine was born!
Now here’s some of our Senior Design Team with fabulous things to show to you! If you love their creation and want to make one just like it -- don’t gamble too long!
GAMBLERS30 -- and remember that once these items are gone they will be gone forever!
