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.

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.

Love Card…

Hi friends.  Are you feeling the love yet?  Time to get working on those Valentine’s Cards and projects and Really Reasonable Ribbon has loads of ribbons and trims to help with those projects.
I used a the pretty Fiona’s Magic Mirror Frame from Cheery Lynn Designs for my background and I treated myself to the Swirl Love die from Tutti Designs for the sentiment and I just love it!

My background was created with Alizarin Colorburst powder from the Brights Color Burst Powder set along with some Metallic Rose from the Precious Alloys Color Burst Liquid Metal Assortment.  I love these products because you can create such a beautiful background paper.  I simply wet a piece of watercolor paper, added some powders and then the liquid metals and swirled it around.  Isn’t it gorgeous?!

I am a pink lover so this card is right in my wheel-house.  I created a pretty bi-color double-loop bow on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Shocking Pink and Sherbet Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.

For a video tutorial on how I created this pretty bow, please click HERE.
Along with a large selection of pink and red ribbons in a variety of styles, Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries quite a few Valentine Print ribbons like the pretty Mixed Pink Heart Grosgrain Ribbon that runs under my sentiment panel.  Check out the full listing of Valentine Themed Ribbons at RRR.
I added a dainty little Pink 10mm Resin Flower Cabachon to the center of my bow to add a little pizzazz.  These pretty embellishments come in a variety pack and also single color packs in white, magenta and purple.  Really Reasonable Ribbon now has a large variety of Pretty Embellishments for all your projects.
