Pink and Brown Valentine

Over at the Cameo Creations challenge blog the second challenge for January is to use pink and brown...I signed up for a Valentine Card exchange over on the Scrapzee forum, so knew right away what type of card I wanted to make!

The patterned paper came with a magazine, but it was a great size polka dot to use as a background. I even drug out the sewing machine! Sewing on cards adds so much texture...besides, its just fun!

The cut file came from Birds Cards, here. I added an offset to the outside, to add contrast.

I used the hearts from the cutout as a border along the inside layer, I didn't want to cut into a whole new page of brown cardstock, and the piece I had left was not wide enough to cover the inside. Design opportunity! I also used a smaller heart to cover the spot I stopped and started the stitching.

I'll add a stamped sentiment to the inside a bit later...I'm having too much fun cutting right now to clear my desk!

  • cardstock: Recollections (brown), stash (pinks)
  • patterned paper: Hot Off The Press
  • ribbon: The Paper Studio
  • digital cut file: birdscards.com

  1. Love the hearts inside a heart ... fun way to decorate the inside too.
