Card blank from Hobby Craft - I don't usually use A5 pre folded blanks as I prefer to fold my own but couldn't resist a pack of these blanks with the delicate punched edge.
Image 'My Funky Valentine' digital stamp from Simply Betty
coloured with Spectrum Noirs
Skin FS1, 2, 3 TN1,
Hair IG 4,6,8,10
Dress and Umbrella CR10, DR1, 2, 3,7
Lace ruffle IG1
I added tiny black gems for the buttons on the coat and red Gems and Glitter to the hairpiece.
The backing paper is from Raspberry Road and came free with a magazine
Roses from wild orchid crafts
Red and gold mirror card, Black lace and ribbon and the two punched butterflies from my stash.
I fussy cut the top and the bottom of the image then used the second largest plain circle nestabilities die to cut the centre section. I then mounted it onto a gold background which had been cut using the largest circle from the set.
I matted and layered the backing paper onto gold then red card and wrapped a scrap of black lace and red polka dot ribbon that had a bow tied in it round the lower third of teh panel before sticking to the card blank. I then added the image panel and the roses and the die cut gold leaves.
The greetings panel is red card mounted onto gold mirror card with the die cut sentiment added and the two butterflies.
I wanted the filigree border to be visible when the card was opened so only lined the right hand side of the card. I used red card and then added the tumbling heart die cuts the smallest heart is cut from pearl card stock so that a greeting can be added from the sender inside.
I am entering the card into the following challenges
