Valentine's Card

I am a total romantic and LOVE Valentine's Day.

This card was made for my Guest DT position at Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes for the 26th January challenge.  I didn't want to blog it until today as my hubby could have seen it on my blog.
I have used a sheet of black A4 card as the base and covered it with a heart design printed and embossed mirror card from Kanban which I have had for a zillion years.

The dies are both from The Works from the haul I got on holiday in Penzance.

The heart is cut from black card. IT cuts out lots of heart shapes. I matted this onto a piece of red card so you could see the red come through the apertures. I then pieced back in some of the smaller hearts and coloured some in with a gold gel pen.

The Love sentiment was cut from a black glitter card. The hearts were cut a second time in red card and I added glossy accents to it.

I gave this to my husband this morning and he loved it (as well as the limited edition bottle of Red Velvet Cupcake Baileys)

Card Details -

Size - A5
Colouring Medium - Gold Gel Pen
Embellishments - Glossy Accents

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order)
