About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Day 45 - My Valentine!

Evening to you!! Well, what a lovely Valentine's day I've had. Breakfast in bed - with pain au chocolat. A day to craft away - while he went for a long run. And then dinner cooked for me - with rather a lot of wine!! So, am writing this before I fall asleep!

And of course, today I am sharing with you the Valentine's card I made for my lovely OH.
I made the base card from two pieces of burgundy card - the size is just over 8 1/4". For the large hearts, I used a combination of Debbie Shore Heart Quilting dies, and Die'sire Essentials Scalloped Hearts dies. The papers are from a Tattered Lace Bowmaker magazine, while the embossed section was created with Docrafts Triboss Heart Attack Folder. The embossed sentiment is also Docrafts. 

The lock and key is from Sara Davies "Love and Romance" collection, and the "Husband" is Die'sire Essentials Only Words. I finished off with buttons and flat backed pearls from my stash.
See you tomorrow!
