My Hubby's Valentine

I finally got around to posting this card I made for my husband for Valentine's Day. He proposed to me 21 years ago on Valentine's day, so it is a very special day for us. I am truly blessed to be able to share my life with such a wonderful man.

I stamped the background using the scratched grid backgrounder by Cornish Heritage Farms in Papertrey Vintage Cream. I then used the heart nestibilities to cut and emboss the window. I cut the same heart on plain printer paper to use as a mask, and then used a stipple brush to make a heart border on the inside of the card. The birds are stamped in Prussian Blue and I colored in the second bird using a Prismacolor pencil. The bird and sentiments are from the Love and Valentine set by Inkadinkado.
And here's a look at the inside.


Stamps-scratched grid backgrounder (CHF), Love and Valentine (Inkadinkado)
Paper-Papertrey Kraft
Ink-Papertrey Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy, Palette Prussian Blue
Accessories-heart nestibilities, heart rain dots (Cloud 9), Prismacolor pencil
