Happy Valentine's Day
I made an A2 sized card with the same braided edge as the card in my last post. It is such a fun technique and truly is easier than it looks. As a reminder, you can find the tutorial for this braided edge here.
I used two adorable sets from Deedee's Digis on this card. The heart basket and inside sentiment are from My Heart is Yours and the "Happy Valentine's Day!" sentiment is from Sending My Love. In case you haven't heard, there's a sale in the Deedee's Digis store! Valentine's Day/Love/Heart digis will be offered at 50% their regular prices throughout the month of February. All discounted sets are appropriately marked in the shop, and the reduced prices will automatically be calculated in your cart, so there's no need to do anything special to get the discount. If you've had your eye on any of these sets, now is a great time to stock up!
For the card base, I stamped a heart image randomly over the cardstock with Versamark and then used clear embossing powder over it. I used the precolored basket image and fussy cut it. I ran a black copic marker around the cut edges. I used a Versamarker pen over the hearts in the basket and embossed them with Sparkle embossing powder. The basket is popped up over the banner. Lawn Fawn heart die cuts add some interest to the ends of the sentiment panel. Red Stickles covers the hearts and the red dots in the patterned paper.
This card has some interior decorating as well. I used the triangle end left from cutting the banner to decorate the panel and then added some die cut hearts for interest. I used more Stickles for sparkle.
I hope you'll stop by Deedee's Digis, see the new sets and stock up on the Valentine's/Love sets. After all, those we love need to hear "I love you" from us 365 days a year not just on Valentine's Day. :)
