{Paper Smooches Video} Adorkable Valentine


Today, I'm sharing a fun Valentine's card featuring an adorkable couple! ;) I used stamps from the Incognito and Sunny Side Up stamp sets, as well as dies from the Glasses, Roses and Tiny Hearts die collections.



The card is centred around the two characters which were brought to life using the Glasses Dies. I wanted the personality of the guy to coordinate with his sentiment so I used vellum to "fog up" the glasses. Then I placed a stack of Tiny Hearts Dies in each lens to express his love for the lady.


The main reason why I wanted to make this card was that I really wanted to make a fascinator with the Roses Dies. Eeek! I created the fancy hat with a layered tulle veil and I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.


In order to maintain a balance between the left and right sides of the card, I selectively die cut part of the vellum Word Bubble Die to make it smaller and, essentially, lighter than the patterned paper one since the fascinator visually makes the right side of the card heavier.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
