St. Valentine card

I know I gripe about this every year, but it irks me that the "Saint" part of St. Valentine's Day has been dropped commercially and in general. Poor guy. What if we dropped the "Saint" in St. Patrick's day? It would sound pretty goofy, don't you think? "Hey! Happy Patrick's Day man!" *chuckle*

Anyway, I made this card for my mom in about 20 minutes this morning. I wanted to try a technique that Nichole showcased on her blog (She used butterfly outline images), and ended up using TWO techniques from her.


My mother hates red and pink, so I was trying for a bit of non-traditional colors (other than the purple and lavender I usually go with for her).

After stamping the heart outlines with white pigment ink on kraft, I colored them in with copics and then cut the whole line of them out. I stamped the BG in white ink also and colored the tiny hearts in with the same copics, then added a ribbon, button, and sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!

I love this card. The rainbow hearts are a great idea...I feel like it sort of has a "seventies" feel, no?
