Shabby Chic Valentine Heart

This will be my hubby's card for this Valentine's Day.
He is so supportive of my creative talents and always makes a fuss
over the projects I create, even though some of them are less than perfect.

This card starts with the Damask Decor cart, and I chose the heart design.

I started with a brown/gold toned paper from KC&CO,
and added ecru ribbon on the side.
I embellished the ribbon with a swirl from the HD and a
small heart flower from Sweethearts which has a gem for its center.
I also added a tag with a fleur de lis image to finish off the left side.
The main image is popped, embossed, layered, and blinged with gems.

The main card base for the easel card is another paper from KC&CO.
If I haven't told you yet, this is another easel card...my favorite!
The inside is simple, and the cuts are from Sweethearts.
The sentiment mat is popped and layered in 1/4" increments.
A personal message will be added and the inside will be complete.

Although this has "girly" things on it....I think this card will suit a man very well.

Happy Valentine's Day!
