In the Pink

This is a fun, bright, cheery Valentine card. The "love" sentiment comes from the retired set, A Light Heart. I love the strong color combinations of Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate, Regal Rose and Whisper White. The ribbon, I believe, is a spool from Michael's.

The stripes on the vertical piece are from a piece of designer paper, backed with a piece of Purely Pomegranate, and topped off with some faux stitching done with a white gel pen.

The heart in the O is part of the stamp, but I punched it out with my 1/2" punch, put it on a dimensional and reset it. I'm obsessed with Crystal Effects right now. I always like it, but it's just working great for all these Valentine cards. I covered the word, and the newly raised heart dot, with Crystal Effects, and I think they look good enough to eat!

You're seeing so many Valentine cards because I sell them at work, so I really try to kick up production! I hope you're not tired of them!

Nice job with the faux stitching, I thought it was real!
