XOXOXO Valentine’s Card

Hi friends.  Today I have a sweet card to share that will be perfect for the one you love.  Cheery Lynn Designs has so many wonderful Valentine themed dies to choose from.  Be sure to head over and take a look at all the options.

My card base is a brown 5-1/2″ square.  I cut the fancy Square Frame in cream cardstock and then adhered it to brown, pink, brown, mint and brown layers, leaving a thin border for each.  I then backed that with natural mulberry paper and attached it to the card base.

Then I cut the smaller Square Frame and layered it up again much the same as the base.  Then this was centered on point and adhered to the base layers.

I cut my Teddy Bear in brown and shaded with distress inks.  I added pink to the ears and paws and black for the nose and eyes.  I cut it again in pink so I could have the heart in pink and adhered this to the bear.  I also shaped the bear a bit with a stylus and foam pad for a little dimension.  I adhered the bear on foam tape for added dimension.

I cut the XOXOXO die in brown and adhered it to cream cardstock and then brown leaving a small border on each.  I then adhered that below the bear.  I also added a couple of the Sweetheart Candies shaded with distress ink on each side of the sentiment.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:

I finished my card off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Pearl Pink and Sherbet Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It’s the perfect addition to balance the card and add a little interest.
