This card was something that a friend suggested and when I heard the theme, I couldn't wait to play and come up with a design for it. Talk about fun! It's a very simple card, but there are quite a few little details, so let's go!
The outfits are from Sweethearts. The clothespins came in a little package from Michaels. The flying banner is just a strip that I cut by hand. It was kind of an after thought, but a really good one. Hee! Hee! I stamped it with a Valentine's Stamp from the Build a Valentine collection and the mini hearts used on the clothes from the Always and Forever stamp set... also the twine that came from My Craft Spot.
You may have to blow up this for the details, but the lady's outfit is actually three pieces. The base is the white layer. It's stamped with pink hearts. It is then cut again out of Vellum. The Vellum is then stamped with red hearts. The bra part is cut from a pink patterned paper. I then used a stylus to add some shape to the outfit. The guy's shorts are cut out of white and stamped with hearts. The waste band is cut from red. They are all raised with 3D adhesive. The clothes pins are just attached to the clothing. The We're Staying Home was simply written with a red marker.
For the inside, I kept is simple... added a couple of hearts (MS Punch) and the sentiment was written with a red marker. I just thought this was such a funny idea! Hope ya'll will play and have some fun with your Valentine's this year. We would love to hear your thoughts and are so excited that you spent some time with us today. Hope it was worth it... Hee! Hee!
