Wplus9 Monday Mood Board #26

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Just popping in to share a pretty, little number I whipped up for Valentine's Day.  Enjoy!
I started this card by piecing a sheet of flocked vellum, as well as a bit of bright pink, polka dot, patterned paper, into the center of a piece of Ballet Slippers cardstock and machine stitching, with bright-pink-threaded, straight stitches, around their combined edges.  I then trimmed their center with a strip of woodgrain, patterned paper, anchored, across its top and bottom edges, with bright-pink-threaded, zig-zag, machine stitches; wrapped with a length of pink ribbon, tied, in a bow, near the left edge of the prepped piece; and embellished with a crystal button, laced with a white chord bow.
After adhering the prepped piece, with foam tape, to the Oatmeal, cardstock, card face, I stamped the bottom edge of a kraft envelope, in Rose Red ink, with a row of hearts and glittered them.
It was then adhered, with foam tape, just to the right of the embellished bow; trimmed, across its bottom edge, with a dainty bit of lace; and stuffed with a white, cardstock tag, topped with a pink, button blossom, laced with white string.
I then hand cut the heart from an ivory, dictionary, patterned paper; stamped it, in Crumb Cake ink, with the stitched, quilt print; ink distressed its edges; adhered it over the center of the kraft envelope; and topped it with the stamped, in Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, and Crumb Cake inks, on White, cardstock die cuts, "Sending Lots of Love AND VALENTINE WISHES" sentiment.  A couple more kisses of glitter and a trio of snowflake sequins complete the look.
Inspiration for this card came from ColourQ's Challenge #226...
and Wplus9 Design's Monday Mood Board #26.  Have fun with it!
Thanks so much for stopping by, y'all!  Be blessed!
