HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

A big thank you to Elizabeth Shannon, my fellow team mate who was one of four presenters at Amanda's last quarterly meeting and she demonstrated a heart pouch which you can see here.  As I was presenting also, I missed her demonstration, just as I'd missed everyone-else's too, so she kindly gave me one she'd demoed with  for inspiration.

I've been trying to make one eversince, but simply haven't had time to make one and when I did start, I was so frustrated because I couldn't find the time to finish it!   

Well here is my version, at long last just in time for Valentine's Day!  Materials used - Basic Black, lined with Everyday Enchantment papers, FREE from the current Sale-a-bration with a £45 spend, hearts punched out from  Real Red Glimmer paper, two strips of 1" x 12" strips of Basic Black cardstock scored at 1/2" intervals to make the lolly, a button secured with linen thread, lush white velvet ribbon (new in the spring mini) and white embossed sentiment from Sprinkled Expressions (also FREE for every £45 spend), and lastly, some heart shaped chocs in a cello bag!  Yummm.......

Here's the card I made for my beloved.  The glimmer paper is so precious, I couldn't just let it go to waste.  I used it as a decorative panel in this card, having pre-stamped underneath with French Foliage words and the splatter pattern before adhering the glimmer paper.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

For the inside of the card, more punched out glimmer paper hearts and a stamp set from my personal collection.  It's understated enough to look masculine - I added the dotted scallop ribbon at the last minute because it looked "undressed" if you know what I mean.

Hope you like it - Happy Valentine's Day!
