Valentine's card 1

Hi folks!

I created a few cards in the past couple of days but did not have the time to blog about it so here I will share them one by one :) It is the season of love so I decided to go with the flow and create lovey-dovey cards. I love distressing the edges of papers so here you will see the same, kind of like my version of shabby chic and I have water colored the background and included some non-traditional masculine math elements with the addition sign washi tape, the pattern papers with lines and squares and also a vintage paper with numbers on it. To add interest to the sentiment I have drawn x's around the circular punch cut out (it kind of looks like real stitching, which I think looks cool!) This is the first time I have used a few digi images, taking out my old printer after ages!! And before I could get all the printing done, the darn thing ran out of ink :p but I got a few images and I liked working with them. (I might have to get myself a new snazzy printer in the future, which will cater to all my crafting needs but for now, this will do.) I added glossy accents to the O and clear wink of stella to the "love" to give it some extra glimmer. (though it may not show up in the pictures). The color combination is of black, white and shades of pink.

Here are a few pictures of the finished card.

Supplies Used:
1. Iris cardstock 250 gsm
2. Love from me digi stamp from Verve Stamps (Thanks for the freebie!! Loved playing with it :) )
