Welcome back to the hop. For today, I wanted to share a very special story with you. Valentine's Day for most people is all about candy, flowers, dinner out and a romantic evening. For our family, it's a little different. My Grandma passed away a few years ago. Her Birthday is on Valentine's Day, so it's always been a day to celebrate, but in a little different way. Since her passing, I always send something special to my mom and my aunts that is a little bit Valentine's Day and all about Grandma's Birthday. So... Here is what I did this year!
Grandma's favorite flower was Yellow Roses. I always try to keep some Valentine's look in the card. For this one, I used the imagine pretty well throughout. The roses are actually from the Shall We Dance Exclusive Circle Cartridge. I flood filled them on the imagine using Lori's Garden. I really like the way they turned out. The heart and Happy Birthday are from Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art. The mats were simply printed from Lori's Garden and then hit with a rounded corner punch. A light blue/green ribbon was run through the center of the top mat.
I used 3D adhesive on the layers and used Glossy Accents on the rose details to highlight the petals.
On the inside, I used a MS corner punch on the sentiment mat, a piece of the leftover paper from the front and then added another yellow rose from Shall We Dance. I was really pleased with the way they turned out. I hope everyone loves them this year and I hope you enjoyed the story and the card. Thanks so much for spending time with us today. We hope to see you again soon!
