Elegant Valentine’s Day Card February 13, 2009

Hi Crafters,

Just wanted to share this beautiful V-day card with you.  I custom made it for a dear friend, who also happens to be my best customer.  He is going to give his lovely wife.  This card was CASEd (here to mean: Copy and Selectively Edit) from a SCS member, at the following link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1075352

I really admired the uniqueness of this card when I saw it.  Hope you like my rendition of it.

Here are the measurements and materials I used.

All paper used are from DCWV. Forever tag is from The Happy Hammer; silver brads from Making Memories; embossing, hearts, key, corners done with  the Cuttlebug Die Cutting Machine; sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! (SU)Elegant Greetings set; Cranberry Crisp Ink pad from SU; Corners punched with my SU  1/4″  circle punch (I don’t have a ticket corner punch, so I use the V mark that is seen right  when the paper is inserted.)Rhinestones (Joann’s); glue dots and dimensionals also used. Silver string was salvaged from a gift set.

Measurements in inches:

Light Pink Cardstock (CS): 6×12 scored at 6 and 9; 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 (you will need to vary this depending on the size of sentiment you are using)

Burgundy CS: 5 14/16 x 5 14/16; 2 14/16 x 5 14/16

Designer Paper (DP): 5 12/16 x 5 12/16; 2 12/16 x 5 12/16

White CS: 2 x 3

If you need further clarifications please post a comment.  Great,  now you have a go at it!

    Dear Lourdes, Thanks much for all your messages and stories. I am really proud of you for all these busy activities. I sincerely hope that such an itelligent and hard working person with such creativity should again go for higher educational achievements, may be you could do studies on line. I want to be proud of my brilliant exstudent when she gets a doctorate which is so easy for such a smart girl. Many of my previous students who are otherwise busy have finished such qualifications by studying on line. Thanks Lourdes, again and our prayers & best wishes for you and your family. Raghavan.
