Paul's Valentine

This is the card I made for my likkle love using Di Hickman's 1st February sketch. I saw this sketch whilst I was on holiday and just knew straight away what I wanted to do with it.

I used some Rob & Bob paper that I bought ages ago for the main background and stamped 'kisses' around each box using some clear HOTP stamps that I had in a QVC TSV. 1st time I have used these and the impression came out really clearly using a Versafine inkpad. I do like this inkpad and am very tempted to buy some in different colours.

The heart is a Sizzlits die cut and the scalloped circles were cut using my new Nestabilities set. This is the first time I have used them and although I had a bit of trouble getting the sandwich right in the Big Shot eventually I was able to get some really nice crisp cuts and the results are perfect. I added some dots to the outside for definition and mounted on 3d foam.

The card is a lot bigger than I would have made usually as the background block dictated the size (it's about 13" x 8") but it's come out just as I pictured it so I am really happy.
