Love Notes - CSC26

Happy Valentine's Day!

I got this one done just under the wire. I made it for my sweetie and gave it to him before dinner. It got the normal - "Very nice." He's a man of few words.

Don't tell him, but I followed the guidelines for our February Peeps Challenge. Thanks Marinette for hosting this one. Then when I saw today's Make-it-Monday, I decided to try the Vellum Sentiment Strip technique described in Nichole Heady's video today.




I made the flower with red tissue, diecut with Beautiful Blooms II #1 (medium and small dies). The stick pins are made with punched True Black cardstock coated with Ranger Glossy Accents. The heart doily is tea-dyed.

I love the sentiment inside. I had to print it by computer as I'm waiting for a replacement due to a spelling error. In my rush I omitted the author - Channing Pollock.



Hope you had a great day and thanks for dropping by. Looking forward to the PTI release tonight!

Beautiful card! Darling stick pins and you made them! Nice touch with the vellum sentiment strip. Thanks for you sweet comment on my blog recently also. I'll be at the release as I must have the doilies and add to my collection of friendship jar fillers!

Linda, this is SO pretty! I love all the details and the sentiment on the inside is really wonderful--perfect for your card. Those little stick pins are adorable and so is the heart doily (do you think PTI will someday come out with a heart!!). Adding the vellum strip was genius--works great for the challenge!

One of my favorite color combos. The pop of black is just the right touch.
