A Couple of Bugs


Yep, it's getting close to Valentine's Day - and I have so many Valentine cards to make this year it seems. I have 19 to make for family and friends. I have already sold a bunch to a speciality shop in a small town close to where I live and they said they may be wanting more......so I'm really attempting to keep them fairly simply for now. I saw this idea for a card on a blog I visited (here) and was going to CASE it. About the only thing that I CASED though was the stamp set, the ribbon, and the colors of the card. Once I started on it, everything just sorta started getting changed.


The stamp set I used is Love Bug from SU. I stamped the "bugs" once and then stamped them again and popped them up on dimensionals. The "border" was done using a MS punch in black and then again in white. I used Real Red, White, Black and Real Red DP on the card. And OF COURSE, I used my Bow-Easy from i {heart} papers to make the little bows. I did some sewing around the card - and "poof", it's done!


Thanks for stopping by................
