A Heart on Valentine's Day

Good morning folks,

I hope you are all having a great weekend so far - a bit dull and drizzly here, so a perfect day for making cards, which is just as well as I have loads to do!!

I thought I would share a 'Heart' card - well it is Valentine's day after all!

This is a card we made at the Claritystampers East workshop last time.

Start by masking off the bottom of a piece of linen card, then add a little bit of colour to the rest of the card.  I fished out all my word chains, then chose words appropriate to the occasion, so in this case: Love, Celebrate, Forever, Dream, Promise, Hope.  I stamped the words in two different colours, then removed the mask and added a black line along the base of the coloured part with the thick end of a sharpie pen.

The heart is a die cut shape - I stamped the couple from the Wee Folk collection in place first, then added some of the same colour ink to the background, with an extra dark bit for them to stand on.  I went round the edge of the heart with a fine black pen, then added it to the base card, making sure the 'ground' lined up nicely with the line on the card.
'Conrgatulations' is another word from the new word chain set. I matted it all on to a thin layer of black card, then on to the main card.

There were lots of variations of this done by thr ladies at the workshop, there are so many words and figures to choose from.  It made a really nice anniversary card using the couple on the bench and words like Memories and Remember, Forever

I have also done a baby version

Take care
