Love Is In Bloom!

Wow- it's already the 2nd day in February! And that means I am ready to share my first card I designed for ABC Toys & Crafts with you! And what better way to start than with a romantic Valentine?

I absolutely love romantic, flowery, vintage looking cards, and this one was so fun to make!

Here in the close ups you can see all the great textures and details I was able to achieve with the products I used.
I started with this beautiful Authentique paper which made it easy to add all kinds of pretty embellishments in a nice variety of Valentine colors.

The Spellbinder's Fair Isle pendant die provided a great background to build upon. I love how the little Hero Arts pearls fit perfectly into the holes.

And both Cuttlebug folders- the Swiss Dots and the Birds and Swirls add such nice texture as well as design.

For added sparkle on my small Prima flowers, I used some Stardust Stickles. I stamped my sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink onto a great little Nestabilities Label four die. Then I added a couple of sweet little hearts that were punched out using the Martha Stewart looped hearts Valentine edge punch.

You can find all these great products by clicking on the links, or go to the ACB Toys & Crafts Store to find even more great products- all at 10% off every day!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed my Valentine. Please be sure to check back here with me as well as over at the ABC blog to see all that we have to share with you as we continue our Valentine themed cards and projects!

Wishing You Blessings,
