A Sneak Peek Valentine
In an effort to actually have my Valentines finished before Valentine's Day, I'm trying to make a few each week. I don't send out a lot of cards for this holiday, so if I can keep with this plan, I should be ready!
Today's card is a CAS sneak peek at the Sale-A-Bration's Catalog. The inspiration for my card came from the catalog itself. I changed the flower and instead of stitching the stem and leaf, I used one of the sentiments from the stamp set to create them.
The stamp set is called Outlined Occasions and both stamped images you see are from this set. If you would love to own this set, it can be your's for FREE during Sale-A-Bration (starts January 24th) with a purchase of $50 or host a workshop or class and get it free with a qualifying total!
I punched 3 flowers using the 5 petal punch and sponged the edges, then attached them together with a glitter brad. The Love tag was created by rolling one side of the tag and threading white bakers twine through the curl before tying a bow. It is hard to tell from the picture (in hindsight, I should have went w/ a darker ink), but the stem and leaves are made with the sentiment 'be mine'.
