Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

A day of romance where the exchange of cards, flowers, candies, gifts and/or even a romantic dinner are on the agenda for many people as they celebrate love!  Lots of couples choose this day to become engaged.  It's truly one day of romance that we share all over the world!

Valentine cards usually portray images of cupids, hearts and roses. The colors of red and pink are also common symbols we see on Valentine's Day.  I chose all of these elements to embellish this Valentine card for someone special.


This card is the typical square style that I find myself making every time I create a card.  There's something I love about this style...I feel like I'm creating on a mini canvas.   I added lots of hearts, both doily style and a few made with metallic gold paper.  The patterned paper on the banner was die cut to include the cupid image.  A few flourishes and roses covered the typical items we see on Valentine's day.  After I arranged and adhered everything, I added a touch of gesso randomly throughout the embellishments to give it a more shabby chic feel.  The sentiment word "Love", is die cut from the same gold metallic paper as the hearts.
