I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Clean and Simple Valentine



Here's a one colour ink project.  I cut out a heart in card with X-cut die through my Ebosser to make a mask and then sponged through the mask lightly with Real Red Ink.  I then stamped Flowerful Heart Stamp on top and freehand drew the border and dots around the heart with Real Red marker.  Sentiment from Petite Pairs Stamp Set.

All ink, markers and stamps from STAMPIN UP and gems from stash.

Here is a close-up of the heart with Crystal effects on the flowers.


This card fits two challenges:-
  1. Addicted to CAS #31 - Love
  2. Less is More #158 - One layer - anything goes.

Really pretty card! I love the Crystal Effects that you added and the hand drawn border is amazing! Mine always looks hand drawn. Yours looks professional! Thanks for playing along at ATCAS. :)
