Happy Valentine’s Day
I made a pink card today. I know… it’s not my usual color scheme! And when I told my daughter that I was planning a pink card, she joked that I would still probably manage to get some brown on there… and I did! It’s light, but it’s there!! 🙂
I purchased the beautiful patterned paper for my center three panels from Etsy. It is part of a digital pack called “Textured Valentine Grunge” from a store called TheDigitalStash. These panels were mounted on Gina K Designs Cranberry Tart card stock. The print had a touch of tan running through it, so I added a bit of Recollections paper from a pack called Neutrals. I also used a piece of pink from the DCWV Brights textured card stock pad.
I added a bit of texture to the tan panel with my crimper.
The greeting was a stamp by Craftsmart that I picked up in a bargain bin at one of the craft stores (AC Moore, I think?) and was stamped with Gina K Cranberry Tart ink.
I used to laugh when I was teaching 5th grade when Valentine’s Day would roll around. This was one of the holidays for which our PTA would “host” classroom parties. Prior to the big day, I had my students create and decorate folders to hang on the fronts of their desks so they had a place to deposit the Valentines that they brought in for all their classmates. Imagine… a bunch of 5th graders exchanging “love notes” with every student! (It was quite a hoot watching them open them in class. Some of them seemed to take it so seriously, making eye contact with and smiling at the senders as they opened their cards.) Anyway, I always made a sample or two of these folders to get their creative juices flowing, and now, every time I create a Valentine’s Day card, I remember that silliness all those years ago!! Fun times!!! 🙂
Thanks for checking out my card project!
