Valentines Day

Hello again to all my fellow Crafters!

Hardly seems like it has been time enough to be posting a 3rd project already!  Time sure has been flying faster than I can blink my eyes, but alas we all make do as best we can.  Anyways, as I was saying today I am sharing with you my third project installment, which is a Valentine's Day themed card.  Now, I am normally a layout making type girl, to put it simply, because I believe they are a lot more work.  This one in particular, however, was worth the results.  I am excited to start utilizing stamps and patterns in my projects, as I had been having a hard time conceptualizing how to implement them, so yay for getting to use my stamps!...

On to the pictures!









How I made it:

Background:
Basic white card stock card - This one measures 3.25" x 5.5"
"xoxoxoxoxoxo" Gstudio clear stamp with red ink fills the front side of card
Pink card stock
Red card stock

Flowers:
Cut with "Stretch Your Imagination"
Center - 3"
Left & Right of Center - 2.5"
Outer Left & Right - 2"
Heart shaped brads - ProvoCraft Bradletz(originally pink, colored with silver Sharpie marker) - I honestly thought I would never use these as they came with an eBay order a loooong time ago
Pop dots behind the red flower's petals for depth

Sentiment Banner at bottom
White card stock
2 pieces of pink ribbon cut to width of card, placed side by side
another white card stock piece cut thinner centered on the ribbons
"Happy Valentines Day" sentiment stamp from Michael's

Main Attraction:
Heart catching monkey Stamp by Stampendous from Archivers - colored in with my chalk set
