Creating cards for holidays a month early is a great way to stay ahead, so this month there will be a Valentine or two shared.
This month's Stamp of the Month, Beloved Bouquet (S1601), is a perfect choice, as it has beautiful flowers and love and Valentine sentiments both for the inside and outside of your card.
My newest Beloved Bouquet project uses this month's theme, Black and White with a Splash of Color through the pattern paper from January's featured paper, La Vie En Rose. The top of the card uses the chevron pattern and the bottom uses the strips from other side of the chevron pattern piece.
There is a black cardstock mat surrounding the pattern paper and a small strip of black cardstock between the two patterns gives a visual break making the patterns work well together.
A Pink glitter paper heart and a triple bow ribbon finishes the card. The ribbon is not Close To My Heart, it is a little stash I picked up from a friend at the latest stash yardsale.
This will be one of the three cards for classes at my Montgomery crop, where they will learn to create the center using a stamp.
Would love to hear from you, your comments are greatly appreciated.
