Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you are all having a sweet day today! I have big plans to finish up some cards that are sitting on my craft table. In the meantime here is the card that I gave a sneak peek of the other day. My Father asked me to make a card so he could give it to my Mom. Talk about pressure!! And add to the fact that my Mom is a true artist. Yikes! I hope she likes it.

I used some of her favorite things; Pink, Glitter, Flowers and Bling. The 50's Sweethearts by The Greeting Farm was perfect for this card since my parents grew up in this era. I have never used a Digital Stamp before so it took me more time to actually print the image than to make the card. Yes really. I am not very computer savvy.

I made the couple 3D and gave the heart 3 layers. I colored the image in with Copic Markers and added Red Stickles to the heart. Since he is a Greaser, I added Crystal Effects to his hair to make it look like he has hair gel in it. She got a tiny little pearl put on her bow. I used Liquid Pearls on the scallop circle.

Inside the card I left it blank for my Dad to write his own sentiment. I added the couple on the bottom and colored them in with my Copics. This picture is super blurry because my camera is on the fritz. Maybe my Valentine will get a new camera. ;-)

That's it for now. Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day!
