Kit Kite Valentine

 


Today I am sharing with you the valentine's card I have made for my hubby.


There is a great offer on in the store of 30% off a purchase of 3 items or more so I would encourage you to head on over.



I have used the image Kit Kite Valentine and Heart Digital Papers from Pinksy Doodles. Please visit the Etsy store for an ever expanding range of papers, images and some fabulous SVG cut files that make me wish I had one of those fancy machines......



I used Sketch 492 from Try Stamping on Tuesdays for the layout and roughly designed my card on scrap paper before organising what I wanted to print out.


I printed the heart digital paper onto some glossy photo paper, it really makes the colours pop. I used 2 of the papers so I could add a contrasting strip.

The little kitty has been coloured with Promarkers and I used my Arteza coloured pencils to add some shading. The balloon has been covered with Glossy Accents and I added Glamour Dust glitter to this so it really sparkles. I fussy cut the image and added some sparkly gems to the cushion. This has been popped up on some thin foam squares.


The You Make My Heart Happy die cut sentiment is from Crafter's Companion. You get all the dies needed to create the layout and once I had decided what papers I was using I could cut the hearts out using the matching papers. I added double sided tape onto the back of the black cardstock before cutting the letters out which is so much easier than glueing the letters after they have been cut.

I added a strip of my absolute favourite ribbon to the underside of the pink central panel. I bought quite a big roll of it from Ebay years ago and have used it for so many cards over the years.

The sketch has 3 little dots on the bottom left so I used one of the rubber stamps from the Always & Forever set from Uniko and added some tiny red gems to either side. There seemed too much blank space above the sentiment so I cut a scalloped heart using an old punch from Woodware.


I had lots of scraps of the papers left so I decided to decorate the inside too. The central focus is the sentiment stamp from You Are Sentiments Outlined from Uniko. I had seen reference to this phrase at different times over the years but did not know where it originated. I really like to watch programmes on my Ipad when I am cooking and crafting and I am currently watching Grey's Anatomy and now know it is from this series. My husband is 'My Person' and has been for nearly 32 years so it is perfect for him.

I layered the papers together using Woodware punches to add a little more interest.

I am a full on romantic. I always say I live in a heart shaped world. You know some people see faces in images and everyday scenarios well I see hearts in all sorts of patterns and I truly believe that is because I have been in love with my husband for so many years. I know I am extremely lucky, he truly makes my heart happy just like it says on the front of this card.

I wish everyone who visits my blog lots of love and happiness and hope you are as happy as I am.
