Soon be Valentines Day ...

Etsy Shop
Hi Everybody,

I know it's not red but I thought this would make a very pretty card for Valentines Days all the same.

So it is in a deep lilac colour and I have added this to my Etsy Shop.  I will be doing it again in red and that will also go into the shop.

The lilac and the white go together so well and I have used the pearl "Bling"  from Want2Scrap that matches the heart shapes

I turned the largest heart in to a frame and added the lattice behind it .. and the smallest heart has just been embossed with the  Regency Swirls  from  Crafters Companion.

The sentiment is one of the Sentimentals Range from Crafters Companion   and I stamped it in blue and embossed it in clear .... less messy that way.

The beautiful embossing folder is also from Crafters Companion and is called the large A4 Picnic Plaid ... and it is beautiful

The two butterflies on each heart are a very fine organza and I bought those at the craft show last year... and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  2. I think red is highly over rated for Valentine's Day. I would much prefer this gorgeous confection - not that my husband has ever sent me a Valentine in my life! He does remember my birthday and anniversary so I shouldn't complain. This really is beautiful. Christine. x

  3. Love the lattice behind the heart frame - gorgeous card. Pat x

  5. Oh my giddy aunt! Today's card is just stunning Christina...and no it doesn't need to be red as it's made with love anyway. Just adore the colours...very pretty combo.

    Love Sheila xx

  15. Good evening Christina,
    What another beautiful card you have made for us yet again Christina. I also think that it would make a stunning card for a couple for any special occasion and it can be made to match the event whatever the special day is. I am so glad that i stumbled across your site on You Tube as you have given be a fresh and different approach to my card making along Sue Wilson. I have a lot more confidence since watching both of you extraordinary ladies in making my cards, only thing is i can never make an actual duplicate. So thank you and Griff for his camera work that lets us all see your cards to the utmost perfection.
    Love and crafty hugs
