Craft-Dee BowZ Valentine Birthday!

I'm up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog today to share my Valentine inspiration with you!

Valentine's Day is more than a holiday of romance in our family.  It's also my cousin's birthday.  We live almost 3000 miles apart and don't see each other often enough.  So, for my Valentine inspiration, I created a birthday card for her.  Happy Birthday, Deb!

"Happy Birthday...On this Valentine's Day"

Valentine's Day always brings to mind "hearts and arrows".  The Basic Grey True Love papers that I have been hoarding in my stash fit the Valentine theme perfectly.

The card base is 5 x 7 and made from white cardstock.  I used the fabulous Close To My Heart Arrow embossing folder for the background layer, gave it a light sanding over the raised arrows and added a touch of ink to the white areas.  The next layer of chevron design is beneath two arrowheads that I made using arrow print patterned paper.  I matted everything with white cardstock.  The sentiment, "On this Valentine's Day" is printed on woodgrain paper and die cut with a Couture Creations heart die. 

The Pièce de résistance, of course is the fab bow that was made using my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making tool.   It helps create bows quickly and with ease.  If you don't have one in your stash, visit the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog HERE and order yours today!  I added a Tim Holtz arrow under the bow as a finishing touch.
