The time is surely flying! We barely got out of the Christmas craze, and Valentine's Day is already just around the corner! Are you ready for it? :o)
I wanted to create a trifold card for my hubby this year, and decided to challenge myself a little bit and try fitting my Valentine's Card into a blog challenge or two... The trifold idea suited perfectly for the fancy folds challenge, however I struggled a little bit more with the photo inspiration challenge (see photo at the end of the post) - I didn't have any images with an envelope! I rummaged through my stash, started thinking a bit outside the box and... voila, an idea came to my head! I decided to draw my own envelope in the hands of this cute little creature from the Mama Elephant "Three Amigos" stamp set. I think it looks pretty neat, doesn't it?!
The rest of the card is really quick and simple - some embossing with an addition of distress inks, some sequins for a bit of bling, a bit of Glossy Accents here and there... the hubby came back from a walk with the Little One just in time for me to have it finished & hidden away, phew! Oh, I also stamped the little guy inside the card, and made him present my message! :o)
I hope you like it!
I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Seven Hills Crafts - Fancy Folds
Sparkle And Shine - Photo Inspiraton
A Gem of a challenge - Love is in the air
QKR Stampede - Valentine Cards
Crafty Friends - Animals/Birds
Inky Chicks - Love and/or Hearts
Have a great Valentine's Day!
