So its that time of year when our hearts turn to romance..and i finally got down to making my valentines card..i love the opulance of the reds and golds used on valentines and of course all the lace and frills and glitz..but this year i decided to go different and came up with a blue card..i plotted it in my mind with lots of blues and whites and lace borders but it didnt quite turn out like that because i decided i didnt like it and so i made it simple instead...


I used a paisley background paper and cut a border from the silhouette store and laid it down my one concession to frilly bits lol onto that i put some handmade paper (yes its from the same batch that my scrapbook layout came..well you have to use it up sometime!!)




I then cut a lattice heart and inked it with faded jeans distress ink and cut the love flourish out of blue card 220gsm and glued them in place....i also cut a cupid and glittered it up and stuck that on...

I had several of the hearts and cupids left because i had cut 4 of each not knowing quite how the card would end up and this following card was made on the spur of the moment...




The background card was one that i cut a few days ago and the red layer was supposed to line up with the scallops but i didnt look at what i was doing properly and cut it wrong so it was discarded until now..i distressed the red with ink    tore some yellow paper and also distressed that with red ink and stuck it together i then tucked on of my spare hearts under the yellow paper and just stuck on the cupid quick but bright and effective dont you think??? love debby xx
