True Love Part 1

January 19th, 2011

Hi everyone

How are you all? I have finally got back into card making, spent a full day yesderday making valentines day cards I managed to design 3 different cards and this card that I have posted today is 1 of the cards. Tommorow I will post design No 2.

February the 14th is only around the corner, so I have managed to put together a pretty valentines day card making kit of love hearts, ribbons, sequins and gems on my craft website. Most of the items I have used in this design are part of the card making kit.

This card design is made on a 6 x 6″ white square card

Handmade card in silver, cerise, black and lilac

Pink and silver Valentines Day Card

I have used the silver irridescent mirror card die cut heart for this design. Around the edge of the heart I have carefully punched out holes using a hole punch. I wanted to create something different and contemporary, so I have used my favourite colour…. Pink! I have used the cerise organza ribbon and embossed baby pink heart ribbon from the kit to thread through the holes, to go across the heart. On the top left section of the heart I tied a knot on the organza ribbon to just to create a more texture.

Once I threaded the ribbon through the holes, I chose the large cerise gems from the kit to stick over the holes to create a sparkly heart. They go really well with the irridescent silver heart.

Pretty pink and silver love heart for your true love

Sparkly romantic handmade card for Valentines day

I have covered the white square base card with a pretty floral paper from Docrafts. I think it is a new range called Capsule Boysenberry paper pack, gorgeous papers from the pack. I have mounted the silver heart in a black and silver square. The paper is another scrapbooking paper I bought a while ago from the craft shows.

I’ve posted full instructions on how to make this card on my Trimcraft page.

Don’t forget to visit tomorrow to see my second valentines day card design.
