Another Valentine's Card

I think I'd better get myself a few boyfriends, as I've made several Valentines Day cards this year! Apart from the one I've actually made for Mark, which obviously I'm not sharing yet as he reads this (oops, better delete that bit about the boyfriends....) this will be my last for this year, so I'm sharing it with several challenges.

The heart stamp is a very old magazine freebie - I think it came from Craft Stamper and it must be at least 10 years old. I stamped it three times in red and embossed with clear powder, then added black squiggles between the hearts and cut around the edges of the whole border - not too close as I didn't want to crack the embossing.

The sentiment is another magazine freebie from about 2 years ago, cut and matted using Gummiapan stitched ovals dies. The dies for the flower and leaves are from my stash - judging by the colour of the metal I'm guessing the flower is a Marianne die and the leaves Spellbinders.

I am sharing this with

  1. Love how the hearts are the border. Beautiful card! Thanks for playing along at Use Your Stuff - Gail

  2. Your CAS design is fabulous, Jane! I just love how you created the side border with that pretty heart stamp.
    Thanks for playing along in this month's challenge at Creative With Stamps!

  3. I was going to ask you if Mark new about the boyfriends, but if he reads your blog, he does! A lovely cas card Jane which would work just as well for an anniversary.

  4. What a pretty card this is. I like the way you have linked the hearts together and cut round the edge for a very different border. Barbxx

  5. This is just beautiful!!! I love the clean and simple look with the stitched ovals in white and then just a pop of color with the flower and leaves. That's gorgeous, and then you added the border. Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at Mod Squad.

  7. Thank you for sharing your final Valentine card with us here at AAA Cards, much appreciated! Love that hand cut heart border & the black squiggles are a super touch.

  8. I thought I recognised the stamp Jane, I think it's floating around in a box of small stamps somewhere!
    Love how you've cutaway the edges and let it take center stage.

  9. Hello Jane: Love your beautifully created Valentine, the fussy cutting of this hearts to create a border was a stroke of genius.

  12. LOL, Jane... am glad you did not delete the boyfriend comment... Love this pretty CAS heart card! The edging is divine as are the stitched oval panels. Sounds like you have a stash like mine...
