Love Amazing You!

It's time to start thinking about Valentines Day!
The one day we share love with that someone special. 
What better way to show that than with a handmade card of course.
Valentines cards I believe are the easiest cards to make. They don't have to be too busy or over the top. Telling someone how you feel about them can be very simply stated.

So my 3rd CASE of the week is again from Mary Fish. Mary created this beautiful card

With this case I have changed a few things up...firstly Mary has used card stock for her background layers behind the white layer. I have chosen to use Designer Paper and not angled it. I have changed up the colour combo as well. I stuck to  traditional "love" colours however I'm all for using non traditional colours for just about any celebration and Marys colour combo for this card is gorgeous for Valentines Day!

I also had to use different stamp and die sets as silly me did not order any of the new Valentines themed sets from the new Occasions Catty! Its ok, that has been rectified. So I had to get resourceful and look at our other items from the Annual catty to make this card. I've actually used a free Sale-a-bration item as well.

A tip for adhering the thin die cuts to the card...put a small dollop of Multi Purpose Liquid Glue on a silicone mat and then use a Stamping Sponge to lightly dab the glue on to the back of the dies and then place firmly on the card. This way you aren't applying the glue directly to the die from the bottle and this reduces the risk of too much glue and squishing out the sides.

These two hearts are from Patti Bennetts designed bundle Ribbon of Courage.

I'm really pleased with how this card looks.
