Ok, I should have posted this earlier but in truth this was a last minute creation on Saturday. I had a card made for my husband for weeks, I always tend leave the one for my son till the last minute. Procrastination is great isn't it.

I had embossed the My Valentine sometime in the past 3 years, yup 3 years. I make mistakes or something does not fit and I save it, I saw this peaking at me over the edge of my shelf and decided to build a simple card around it. The tan cardstock comes embossed with dots.

I used a large circle punch that magically fit to cut out the embossed image, I then added a red Lacey circle as a background. I used my very rarely used Dragonback Fiskars paper edgers scissors on both layers. I added some thick red ribbon. I finished with a Spellbinders Ladies fashion buckle, if you look close it has hearts. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder for a glossy look.

Supplies: Cream, red and tan cardstock, GStudio- Valentine, Spellbinders-Ladies Fashion Buckles and Lacey Circles, Ranger-red embossing tinsel, misc red ribbon.



  1. I'm waiting to comment... waiting oh, or is that PROCRASTINATING. Hehe! Well good things are worth waiting for, and this is a fine example.

    I totally am enamored of your little red belt/ribbon and your color combo is very appealing. Just an all over wonderful love card.

    Thanks for posting this for us to see!

    Love you,

  2. Nina!! It is wonderful!! Very well put together and love the buckle thing as well.
