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.

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.
