Two Valentine Cards.

This card measures 12.5 x 12.5 cms and is made using a white linen effect card.
Heart Card
I thought that I couldn’t get away with just posting a card like this as it is far too simple, but to be honest, this is the sort of card I would love to get and would pick up in a card shop, my own taste is very less is more.

The heart is cut from a lovely red sparkly paper using a 2in scalloped heart punch and then stuck straight on to the card blank.
This next card measures 12.5 cm x 12.5cm and is made using an ivory linen effect card.

For this second card I have used a plain edged punched heart, but added a text background paper, mat and layered on gold mirror card and four very shiny (and quite expensive) flat backed glass gems to bling it up. Again very simple. The red glittery paper is from Making Memories – Red Glitter Love Notes – 31740, but as I have had the text paper for a long while, I don’t have any details for it.
