Well, Valentines day is just around the corner, and what better way to prepare than to make a Valentines Day card. I decided to use the new and gorgeous C'est La Vie collection to make a set of two Valentines Day cards. The C'est La Vie collection features stunning florals, gold, hot pink and contrasts of black. Totally perfect!
For the first card I pulled out a black doily from my stash. I love the big impact it makes with this collection. I then layered a couple of the papers and used the 'me & you' phrase from the cut apart sheet to act as the title sentiment. I added a layer of vellum, and finished the card with a clip and cork heart. So so so pretty!
For the second card in this set I decided to make a giant bow as the main feature. I used an American Crafts Dear Lizzy bow die from my stash and that stunning floral patterned paper in the collection. I backed that bow on a black and white square from the cut apart, a white doily from my stash and then a layer of two patterned papers (one of those cut into triangle corners). I added a touch of machine stitching for a little texture. To finish this card, a 'love' puffy sticker was the perfect touch!
I don't think I have ever been so organised for Valentines Day! Go me!
I hope this post has inspired you to delve into your stash and create some cards.
