Hubby's Valentine

Amy's Card I Cased
As most of you know, I love the PTI challenges. During release week it's Create Along With Us instead of MIM.  So many projects to choose from, but I ended up being inspired by one of Amy's Gem Inspirations cards. The glitter frame is so beautiful & made me wonder if I could do the same sort of thing with the PTI Hexagon coverplate. Gave me a chance to use a sheet of red glitter paper still sitting on my table unused for Christmas cards this year.  
It's layered 3 times for depth. I carefully cut out the area I needed for the PTI Love die (cut from black cardstock & clear embossed) and the sentiment from PTI Wonderful Words: Friends stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  I added the black heart from the love die cut & brushed the negative heart space with MFT Glitter Glaze.  
Gotta say, this was a really fun card to make & hopefully hubby will love it! Three Valentines made before Christmas--might be a record--haha!  I'm entering SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday & Virginia's View.
I'm on vacation until after Christmas & so glad I don't have to commute during our stormy weather.  Just hoping the river stays in it's banks. Today I made my annual pumpkin bread & tomorrow I'm meeting a friend for lunch.  Wishing all of you a blessed holiday season.

  24. Ooh! Your card is so cool. I love how you cut out space to make room for the greeting--that's a definite trick I need to try sometime. Kudos to you for getting some VD cards made before Christmas even! I dragged out the VD papers and stuff but so far that's all she wrote.
