Valentine with Lacy 8 from Couture Creations

With Valentine's Day a week away, it's time to roll out that special Valentine for the one you love. 

I'm sharing a card today that I created using the Couture Creations Madeline Collection Lacy 8 and Nested Hearts Die-cuts.  This one is for my sweetheart.  I'll save the sentiment for inside!

The card base of white cardstock is layered with both pink and white/gold foil heart patterned paper from Theresa Collins, You Are My Happy Collection.  This collection is part of my Frosted Designs January Kit.  It is full of scrappy goodness! 

I used the Lacy 8 die with the gold glitter paper and the Nested Hearts with the pink glitter paper.  The Lacy 8 is a two part die...the outer frame portion and the ornate, inner circle.  After adhering the frame to the card, I centered the large pink heart in the open circle area.  Next, I applied foam mounting tape to the back of the ornate circle portion of the Lacy 8 and adhered it over the heart.  I double layered two smaller die cut hearts and adhered them over the center opening of the ornate circle with more foam mounting tape.

Here's a closer look at the different layers that give the card a 3-D appearance.

To embellish the card, I adhered Couture Creations Moonlight Pearls to the 4 corners of the frame, added a bow, flowers and a couple of stick pins.  I tied the multi loop bow using my Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker tool.

I hope you enjoyed my Valentine inspiration!
