Valentine for My Mom

 This is a Valentine I made for my mother.  I had seen this type around and really wanted to try my hand at it.  When I did research I found out it is just done with a die.  A couple weeks ago I found said die at JoAnns for 50% off and just new I had to order it.  So.......I did just that!   lol  At the time of it's arrival in to my hot little hands, I was hosting an online crop.  I thought I would hurry and whip this up to fulfill one of the challenges.  Well my hurry and do anything took me two days!  lol  Between the crop and Super Bowl activities, as well as it being a little more tedious than expected, it did take me longer.  I do like the way it turned out and will take it to my mom today.  I think she will be happy to get it even tho she may not remember who she got it from or what it is even doing in her room.  lol 

This is what it looks like opened.

This is a top view in case no one has seen a card like this before.

I chose to use some new paper I just got from Wild Rose and am in love with all the pink!  The white borders were inked a little on the edge and then I added micro glitter.  All other sparkle is stickles. A few flowers on the corners frame it in I think.  A bow with a few buds finishes the heart die.....well, along with stickles of course!   The letters are cut with my cricut and Hello Kitty font.  The LOVE letters are popped for added dimension.  A little stickles around then seemed to pop them of the little die cut doilies. I think I used more dies and punches on this project than I have ever used on a single item before.  lol  Is there a challenge out there for using the most!  lol  

I thank you so much for stopping by and pray God will keep watch over each of you.
