To My Best Bud on Valentine's Day

January 8, 2013

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Did you have a good weekend?  My parents came over and helped us put up & break down my wedding fair booth.  The wedding fair was on Sunday afternoon, and now it is just a wait & see type of thing to know it if was effective.  All the while I have still been battling this horrid head cold, and I am just waiting for it to run its course and go away.  Blech.

Today I have my card to share with you for my guest design spot at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!  This week's challenge is the theme of "new", which can be interpreted as you see fit.  Well, I used a new to me Flourishes stamps called "Heartlines" that I've always wanted, and finally had the chance to, this is also a peek at some more brand new, not released yet Prima product from a collection called "Divine".  Here is what I created!
1. Make A2 card from cream cardstock.
2. Cut floral paper slightly smaller, then adhere.
3. Cut two strips of patterned paper, and layer to the left side of the card, then add two washi strips.
4. Wrap crochet trim around the top and add a matching bow.
5. Stamp a frame to patterned paper, cut out and adhere to the right of the bow.
6. Layer flowers to the top of the frame.
7. Stamp the sentiment to the lower right corner of the card.
8. Add a strip of jewels to the left of the sentiment to finish.
