Valentine LOVE, Post 1-4

Wow, Valentine's Day is coming up right quick!  Have you made any Valentine cards yet?  Here are a couple quick ideas to get you started. I'll post more in the coming days.

I totally CASEd this card by Catherine Pooler - so simple, but so striking!  And it was a good way to use up some of my retired Designer Series Paper!


I raised the DSP and the heart cutout with Dimensionals:


Here is the dimension from another angle:

I wanted to design a card for ladies to give to their men, and I wanted to use my new Banners framelits dies.  I came up with this card, using the anchor as a symbol of what my own husband is in my life!


I curled the banner tips with my finger and thumb, and punched holes in the accent label to thread the taffeta ribbon through.  The label sponge-inked along the edges and is mounted using Dimensionals.
