A Magenta Valentine
I tend to put off getting cards made for monthly challenges--seems like there's plenty of time. Now, of course, here it is almost the end of February & finally finished my card for the Magenta monthly challenge. When I began stamping over 15 years ago there were several stamp stores near me & they carried Magenta stamps which I immediately fell in love with. I've had trouble making cards with this beautiful heart stamp, so this time I decided to let the stamp stand alone. After white embossing on kraft cardstock I simply added red glitter using my trusty Sakura Quickie Glue pen. The card front is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder & I was finally able to use this red polka dot ribbon.
So glad to have another Valentine ready. Maybe I'll get them all mailed on time next year! I'm also entering the Anything Goes challenges at SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday. Luckily, The Kraft Journal doesn't count the card itself as a layer so I'm entering the CAS One Layer Card challenge. I so appreciate your visit & comments--thank you!
