Valentine's Card

Wednesday, February 3, 2021
Happy Wednesday from chilly central Ontario! We haven't had much more snow the past few days but we have had some very cold temperatures. I've been spending my days looking at little travel trailers and dreaming of summer. Given that we won't be able to go on holidays again this summer, I decided to invest in a little trailer in order to at least get away to some local campgrounds. In fact, I've already booked our first camping trip!

I'm delighted to be hosting this week's Little Red Wagon challenge. The theme this week is "Total Eclipse of the Heart". For each of my challenges this year, I've chosen a theme based on an eighties hit! I'm actually looking for projects with hearts which seems quite fitting given that Valentine's Day is just around the corner. 

I recently purchased some slimline dies through Amazon and used a couple of them on my card. The hearts flourish border was cut four times from a die from My Craft Spot (no longer in business) and then layered together for a bit of thickness. The top layer has a few black paint splashes on it. I used a few different shades of reds to smoosh my background and then splattered some red and black. The black panel is also embossed with some tiny hearts. I was going to leave things like that and add a Happy Valentine's Day sentiment but the card just seemed too bland. I added a little boa and some red heart gems. The sentiment can go inside. 

I do hope you'll head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created and then link up your own heart-themed project!

What a fabulously charming card. I was born in '84 am a huge (!) fan of the decade that helped to give me life. Like all decades, the 80s were far from perfect, but my stars, did they house some dynamic, fun, awesome points - music wholly included.
