Happy Valentine's Day...

How cute is this little guessed it, another Penny Black stamp this time destined for DH on Monday14th Feb, along with a couple of 'win for life' scratches....oh how magic that would be....and of course a red chocolate heart, plus one for me!

You wouldn't believe me probably if I said this card took me a whole Saturday afternoon to create - yes that's right.  I started with a blank mind and went from there, trying this and that, choosing this stamp or that one, and finally here is the end result, which I just love.....this cuddly little morsel would make anyone feel warm and fuzzy.

The base card measures 11cm x 11cm a little larger than a mini but just as cute. The two top cutouts were zipped through the Bigshot using the 'Labels Three' spellbinder nestabilities die.  These have been raised using the foam dimensions to give a 3D effect as has the sentiment cutout too.

Materials used are:

Cardstock:  Real Red which has been embossed with the Swiss Dots EF.
Paper:  Bella Rose DSP and watercolour paper for stamped image.
Stamps:  Penny Black clear stamp - 'Wonderful' series of 10 stamps and Whimsical Words
Bigshot:  Labels Three Spellbinder Nestabilities die - two different sizes used
Punch:  Extra large curly label punch.
Ink:  VersaCraft White, Staz On Black, SU watercolouring pencils used with the aqua painter.
Accessories:  black self adhesive half pearls.
Hope you like it....Keep smiling, Ann
