Valentine for my Hubby January 29, 2010

I just love creating cards for my hubby John.  It’s funny…when I’m making something for him, I am 100% focused and really put all of my heart into the card.  I wanted to create a bright card with tons of love sentiments pulled from many different stamp sets.  I also wanted to incorporate an all-business theme. 

What do you think?  This cardfront will definitely reinforce just how I feel about him.    Below is an upclose pic of all the elements.  I used four different stamp sets to create this cardfront.


STAMPS:  With All My Heart (occasions mini catalog), Admit It (hostess stamp set), Certified, and A Happy Heart stamp sets.

PAPERS:  Real Red, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White cardstock.

INKS:  Real Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin’ Pads.

ACCESSORIES:   Clips Assortment; Mini Library Clips; On Board So Tweet; Wide Oval Punch; My Way Punch; 1-1/4″ Circle Punch; Spiral Punch; Crystal Effects; Stampin’ Dimensionals; Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool.

    Love it!
    Are you like me, and give the valentine to hubby, only to snag it back, put it in a clear envelope so you have it for a sample to show?
