Thought of the Day: “Live the Life you Love, Love the Life you Live”
Daily Challenge: Participate in this fun Valentines Card Blog Hop! 🙂
Welcome to our Valentines Day blog hop. I am so glad that you decided to join us!
Here is a photo of the materials that I was given to make a card. Amanda has information regarding these products on her blog which can be found here.
I started by cutting all the paper into small circles (1.5″ in diameter). My original plan was to layer these in rows across the card and then use the chipboard that I embellished with glitter on top. I wasn’t pleased with the way it turned out so I took the card apart (thank goodness for repositionable adhesive!).
This was my Plan B card and I am much happier with how it turned out! I turned over the chipboard flowers and inked them with brown ink. Then, I used the heart chipboard as a template and cut out three different size hearts from the circles I made in step one. I used a scrap the same color as the card and wrote the words “just as flowers grow…” and used the rhinestones for the dots. The inside says “so does my love for you”. I had some ribbon leftover from a baby shower I helped with and cut off small strips of it. By tying a knot in the middle and angling the edges, I created a leaves that grow with the size of the flower. This was a simple card to make and it looks way cuter than my initial card idea.
