Husband, Be mine...

Afternoon everyone, well I sat there last night trying to make this card so hubby didn't and wouldn't see it, but we all know what men are like, no he had to go and be nosey!! And so I sat there and finished it with him watching!!! Oh well, his loss, i'm not making him another one! (I'm sure I will!!)

Well I decided I was going to play with the 'stash' of acetate I have sat amongst the papers,  I also in my rummage found all my cuttlebug embossing folders! so they came out to play too!   It took me about 10 minuets to remember what plate I needed in my Big Shot to use the folders!  The only problem I have with the embossing folders is that they are one size and sometimes I want a large embossed background! So last night i joined 2 small ones together! (ok so i had never thought of that before, but on my swirl one it wont work!) It wasn't until after i had put it all together I realised I had gold peel offs and silver miri card! LOL, I still think it looks OK??

The card base is acetate, I used my Argyle cuttlebug embossing folder on the silver miri card and on a sheet of centura pearl red paper, on the inside I have used peel offs to wright 'I LOVE YOU', I also covered the inside panel where I stuck the from with a piece of the centura pearl red paper.

The digi is a free one from Claudia and Co, I got it a few weeks ago,just haven't had time to play with it. I thought it was the perfect image for a valentines day card!

I have coloured it with pro-markers, I used antique pink, poppy and cardinal red, I also used denim blue around all the streamer parts.  

I then used Tim Holtz brushed corduroy with a dabber from SU to give the aged effect

I then went round the edges of 2 of the hearts with some 2mm rhinestones just to add a bit of a sparkle, I used gold peel offs for the wording.  

I have entered this card to the following challenges;
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Love is in the air
Lexis Creations - Valentines
Passion for Promarkers - Let it Shine

If you have a moment, please let me know what you think!

Love it, it all works really well. You do know the secret of hiding stuff from men is NOT to hide it, don't you lol. He'd probably not even noticed you were making a card then lol. Hugs lin

Adorable Trina, my Hubby will be lucky to get one from me.....LOL, I never send him a hand made card, I don't like writing in them...LOL, thanks for playing along at PFP.



Trina said...

I swear! Could these men not be more interested in what you're making than when you're trying to do something for them??

p.s. I like the new look of your blog, but this font is a little hard to read... (For me anyway!)
