WMSC#83-Sewing Box Velvet Valentine

Just stopping in today with a card I made for Waltzingmouse Stamp Sketch Challenge #83.  This weeks sketch is by one of Waltzingmouse's Mischief Makers, Jen Cuthbertson.


Isn't this a cute sketch for Valentines Day?  I don't have very many Valentine Waltzingmouse images, but there is a really cute heart in Waltzingmouse Sewing Box Hugs.  I used some black/white patterned paper layered over some red velvet cardstock.  The velvet cardstock is cut using a scalloped nestie and I also used the velvet to cut a heart border with PTI's Heart Border die.  Even though Waltzingmouse Nordic Winter is primarily a holiday set, it does have a great heart border stamp which I used to make a little patterned paper the image is stamped on.  I also stamped a heart image onto some smokey shadow cardstock to add a little more contrast.  here are three tiny heart shaped brads up in the corner and a spellbinder tag in smokey shadow holds the twine bow and sentiment tag from Afternoon Tea Sentiments.    I am very careful how I use my precious velvet cardstock and just have enough for one more card, so I am going to have to ration it unless I can find some more!

Red velvet card stock? You've got to be kidding. I'll bet it's the best in person. And, the gingham, and the hearts. All, so homey and sweet. Some lucky person is going to get this valentine and be so happy.

Whohoo Cathy! Love the B&W gigham. Gosh doesn't it magnificent with those blanket stitched hearts?! I don't have that set but darn, I think I kind of need it now. Grrrrreat, you enabler you! Love that fancy gray die cut atop the card too. I can't place it, but it sure is purdy. So so lovely.
