Roses and Lace Valentine


I have had a fantastic weekend creating a valentine card. My idea for the card started off with the heart template which I got from Splitcoast Stampers, then I thought how nice it would be to create the heart with a flower effect and with an image inside it, so I chose the cute little image from h'Anglar. This led me to the beautiful Botanist papers from Katie Pertiet which is a download from Designer Digitals, and then my creativity went wild. It was the first time I have put together a card with a fully finished inside and a matching envelope, and I have to say I am really pleased with the finish effect. Hope you like it xx

Such a beautiful and elegant card and envelope Ann! Taking the trouble to decorate the inside and make an envelope really makes a huge difference, I must make more effort on the insides of my cards LOL! Fabulous papers and the little Hangler girl popping out of the heart is beautifully done. Chris x
