Valentine in November


MFTWSC150

There's Christmas in July so why not Valentine's Day in November?! I've already made a lot of Thanksgiving & Christmas cards. Since I also like to send Valentine's cards I decided to use the sketch from MFT and the color combo from Dynamic Duos to get a head start. Stamp & dies are MFT.  
The sentiment is from Lovey Dovey Sentiments & is silver embossed on a black scrap cut with Fishtail Flags by cutting it half way & then turning it around to cut the other end. It's mounted to a Dizzy Doily die cut that was white until I inked it with Brilliance Starlight Silver.  The black panel is cut with Notched Border & sprayed with Glimmer Dust. Dispersed Dots die is used on another scrap for the background piece.  Embellishments are sheer black ribbon & a double row of black gems--picked up a large package for $1. I'm adding this to Pixie's Crafty Workshop. Thanks for your visit--probably the only Valentine you saw today--LOL!

  2. Terrific Valentine card Greta - what I love about it is that it doesn't have the usual red and hearts on, very classy looking. And those black gems were an absolute steal - well done!

    Hugs, Di xx

  3. Lovely Valentine, Greta! I have a cousin who doesn't send Christmas cards ... she sends Valentines. They are sent in February, when the stress of Christmas is over!!
