The Valentine I have to share with you today does not necessarily need to "be" a Valentine, since there is no reference to St. Valentine's Day on it. It could be a "missing you" or an "I love you" or a "thinking of you" or even a birthday card, for that matter. But, it does have a romantic feel to it and with its' traditional Valentine colors, along with the fact that St. Valentine's day is only a couple of weeks away, I have entitled this my "Farewell Valentine".
The reason I have incorporated the word "farewell" into my title, is that this is the final card I have designed for Classy Cards 'n Such. I have enjoyed being on their design team, but the months quickly passed and now it is time for me to move on in new directions.
And now for the details of my card:
I started by making my card base with a piece of shimmery card stock from the Specialty Paper Variety Pack. On that I put a piece of pink card stock which I had dry embossed using the hearts embossing folder. I tied a bow around that with some beautiful light pink sheer ribbon. Then I placed my stamped image which was layered over some gray card stock on top. Finally, I added three gorgeous little Gillian raspberry flowers. They are so, so pretty and with their speckles of glitter they add such a wonderful feminine touch. And that was it! A quick, easy Valentine.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll come visit me again soon!
