Valentine Card


Here is the card I did for this last week's Challenge:

I stamped the large background SU French Flair stamp on red card with Versamark ink.

Then added a small All My Love greeting (SU) in black to the top left of the red card.
Black grosgrain ribbon wrapped around the red. And to finish, the swallow from the SU Carte Postale set was stamped onto white card using black ink.

I love the way these 2 stamp sets work together and can't wait to try out the matching wheel, Leaves A La Carte!
I am now spoilt for choice on what to send my DH on Thursday, as tonight at craft club we made Decoupage Cards and I am definately sending him one of those (Bears in the Bath!) Will post that before then for you to see - it's so cute!

Hi Kathy,

I used a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - it's the clear StarDust Glitter one - the cheats way to add glitter if in a rush!
