Today I want to share with you a special Valentine I made for my husband, who is currently deployed. This is not our first Valentine's Day apart, and probably not the last, but we make work ;) So I wanted to do something different with the Paper Doily Large Sizzlit. I started out by cutting out 5 doilies and folded them and adheared them down to a white circle I punched out. Then I used the large scallop circle punch with Basic Black cardstock and added another layer with the Delicate Doilies stamp set and punched it out with another circle punch. Next I took the tiniest of Stampin'Up's pearls and put one on each scallop. I cut my Basic Black card base at 5 x 10 and folded it to make a 5x5 square card to accomodate the larger "flower" I made with the folded doilies. I added a 4 3/4"square layer of Whisper White cardstock and then a 4 1/2" square of Mocha Morning Designer Series paper. This paper is flocked and so luxurious! I added Black Satin ribbon before I put the doily flower down. Finally I added the little heart cut from Red Glitter paper with the small heart punch and put a pearl down on each corner, I colored them red with a Sharpie marker.
I really love how nicely this card came together! I enjoyed sharing it with you today!
