Paper Sweeties February Release Countdown

Friday, February 13, 2015

With just an hour to go in my neck of the woods, let me be the first to wish you all a very happy Valentine's Day!  I hope your day is full of love and laughter.  We don't have anything special planned, except the exchange of some little gifts.  We usually go to Red Robin for dinner, but the service lately has made the trips not even worth going out.  My big kiddos have basketball games in the morning, but then, I'm hoping to have a pretty laid back rest of the day, as we've been running around like chickens with our heads cut off lately, and I could use a little downtime.  So much so, that I even canceled school this am so we could make Valentines and bake cookies and just hang out in our pjs.  So, anyway, with the special day upon us, I thought it only fitting to produce a creation worthy of such an occasion, and Garden Posies had the perfect image to do so.  Enjoy!
I started this card by gold embossing a trio of hearts across the center of a piece of watercolor paper.  I then misted over them with water, before brushing the piece with Candy Apple Glimmer Mist.  Once it was dry, I secured it, to the Oatmeal, cardstock, card face, with gold thread, which stretched across the design itself.  The left half of the card face was framed with a sweet, wood veneer Polaroid.
The "Kindness = Love" sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black, on a gold ticket, which was layered across the embossed hearts and veneer frame with foam tape; and lots of gold sequins, scattered about, complete the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I've cooked up a page to share with you all tomorrow, but until then, be sure to check out what the Design Team has whipped up to share today, and have a "love" ly weekend!
