I know Valentine's Day has been and gone, but I've still got a couple of projects to share with you that I made for orders. :) I didn't realise the UK done Valentines so big - but I had a lot of orders for cards, so I had to take advantage. So you'll be seeing a few Valentines cards here and there on free days on my blog - just for a while. :)
I made this little set for my boss to give to her husband. I used to find it really difficult making male cards, as I really gotta restrain myself when it comes to embellishments, but the more I do it, the more I like it.
I used some scrap strips from My Minds Eye Breeze collection. The card is mostly blues and browns.. boy colours, right? With a few splashes of red, valentines, right?
I die cut two hearts using some Provocraft dies, added a strip of red sheer ribbon and a gorgeous crushed velvet ribbon in Ladybug from Doodlebug. I then hunted my stash for some red pearls and found those little beauties. So added a few of those. Finitio.
As for the little pillowbox, I used the same image, only cropped it so it would fit inside the oval nestie. I used more scraps to wrap around the box and a few more lengths of Swimming Pool bakers twine from Doodlebug finish it nicely. I decided to use acetate so the recepient knew what was inside. :)
That's all from me for today - enjoy your weekend.
