This is the card I’ve made for my husband for Valentine’s Day. I was entirely inspired by Dawn’s card here. Thank you, Dawn! I hope Dawn’s card may inspire you the way it inspired me 🙂
I love the way Polka Dot Punches embosses … the heart just looks elegant. The silver was a perfect colour for a masculine card … and I teamed it up with the Going Grey Textured cardstock (not having enough Silver) and the Basic Grey Taffeta ribbon. And ever since I earned the First Level Hostess stamp set, Party Punch, I have wanted to use the “Be Mine” stamp with the Round Tab punch … and I remembered to use it! I’m really amazed I remembered! It’s so easy to forget you have a particular stamp, isn’t it?!
It has been a quiet week on the card making front, I’m sorry. You’ll see why soon 🙂
This is a birthday card I made for an old friend’s son’s 4th birthday, whose party we went to today.
I honestly couldn’t put a ribbon on a little boy’s birthday card … it didn’t go with images of Batman or Spiderman!! I’ve used the colours Ballet Blue, Real Red and Basic Black for a more masculine card. The stamps I have used are from Birthday Best, Canvas background and the Level 1 Hostess stamp set, Party Punch. I’ve done lots of sponging on this card and paper piercing too! I hope you like it (and I hope the birthday boy liked it!).
