From the First glimpse


Here is a card I made to let my husband know he's my one and only. :) After all these years, I think it's good to remind him that I love him dearly. I designed the sentiment in Word and then printed it on vellum. Immediately after it came out of the printer, I sprinkled the sentiment with clear embossing powder and then used my heat gun to emboss it. The die cut inlay technique was used with the XOXO Border die from Simon Says Stamp. Some die cut hearts are featured on the front and inside the card. I wanted to play along with this month's challenge at Scrapbook Blessings Club. Their challenge is to use Christmas supplies to make a Valentine's or Love themed card. I used some of my favorite Basic Grey Christmas paper line, Figgy Pudding (retired), for this card.


He is extremely supportive of my cardmaking so I usually try to make him a card with a special fold or technique.When I saw the Peek-a-boo Hidden Message card by Dawn Griffith, I just had to give it a try.


As you open the card, a hidden message appears in the opening. I used a retired Studio G wood mount stamp for the hidden message. I used scraps of Bazzill cardstock for the oval frame and some of the hearts. After I took the pictures, I used the inside top flap to write a message.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Scrapbook Blessings Club - Christmas Card Valentine
Craft Your Passion Challenge #300 - Anything Goes
Sweet Stamps February Challenge - Anything Goes
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge #103 - Anything Goes
