Valentine's card

Good morning,
I hope you are having a day filled with love, actually it would be good if that happened every day wouldn't it?

this is the card we made last Saturday at the Diva Red workshop.  It could be made to suit other occasions, not just Valentine's day.

The heart is actually cut from a beer mat! 
Start by die cutting the alphabet and stick it to the beer mat, then die cut the heart - it is a Sizzix Bigz die.
Paint with black gesso and allow to dry then paint and distress with different acrylic paints until you like what you've got.
Finish by coating with a clear gloss or metallic glaze. Allow to dry.
For the background, stamp the script from the Journalling set
Stamp 'Be My Valentine' from the Art Nouveau words set and cut out.
I added some crafters wire round the heart, then attached the words.
Edge the card with gold paint

All stamps used are from Claritystamp

Thank you for visiting today
