A Friendly Valentine 50

Mona Pendleton | Monday, January 24, 2011 @ 2:54 AM | , , ,

Hi there! I hope you all had a great weekend :) What did you do? Did you watch football or spend time getting crafty? Scott enjoyed watching football and I had fun playing with my crafting supplies. We did go for a hike up South Mountain and we even made it to the gym (my other healthy addiction).
I'm here today to share a Valentine's Day card that I made for the JustRite Friday Challenge #047 which is to create a love, wedding or anniversary project. With my crafty girlfriend, Caroline, in mind I created this card. For sketch inspiration, I played along with Card Patterns #99 sketch:
 I inked up the sweet heart image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored using the Copic markers shown below, stitched on a lil' button then using a  S4-116 Standard Circles SM die template to cut/emboss the heart image. I then stamped the sentiment and using a S4-304 Eyelet Circles die template to cut/emboss circular shaped sentiment. I pulled out Cherry Limeade Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and colored some white seam binding to coordinate with my card.
Shown in the photo below, are the Copic markers I used:
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you all have a great day :) Be Sweet!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: JustRite Stampers: Stitched with Love Borders & Centers
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-304 Eyelet Circles, S4-116 Standard Circles SM, GC-001 Grand Calibur
