I have another Valentine's Card to share with you today. I was just really thrilled with the way it turned out and I sure hope you like it!
For this card, I used papers from Anna Griffin. These papers come from the Autumn Paper collection on HSN. I found this image of the Cherub on a Google Search. It was actually in a vintage valentine, but I cut it out with a craft knife. Unfortunately, when I did, I didn't do a very good job and cut through some of the ribbon that ran over it's little parts. So... I sat it aside for a while. I cut the label shape using CTMH Art Philosophy as well as the heart from a rose petal paper. I cut the background shape for the heart from Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art Cartridge. I added another heart to the inside and stamped it as well as the label shape on the front. These stamps are Tim Holtz that I got on clearance at Michaels a long time ago. Of course, in my normal fashion, it took me a year and a half to use them. Hee! Hee!
I placed my mats and then added part of a white doily. I then picked up the little cherub and added it to the front with 3D adhesive. Then I had a thought, so I grabbed this beautiful Cranberry Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot. I started by running a strip of ATG tape across the card and down the side. I just started gathering (clumping really) the ribbon all throughout the card and also covering where the ribbon print was on the cherub. VOILA! It worked! I then added a bow to the label shape and added the little heart to the top as if the cherub was holding a valentine. I used glossy accents on the heart as well. I also added some stickles here and there on the label shape to highlight the stamping.
I kept the inside simple. I added the heart that I stamped and a little crown stamp. The crown stamp is from the same Tim Holtz set, but the shape it's on was cut with the Cricut from the Sophisticated cartridge. This Anna Griffin paper is so inspiring! I just love the way this all turned out. That ribbon really saved me on this one! Hee! Hee! I would love to hear your thoughts on this card and I am so glad to stopped in for a visit today!
