Lots of Love on Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day card - Front
Made this Valentine's Day card for my best friend who is also my daughter godmother. My daughter keeps asking me if I am going to snail mail her godmother soon. Thus, I made her (my daughter) this card so that she can shows her godmother how much she loves her.


Sketch Saturday Week #142
This card layout is inspirational from Sketch Saturday Week #142 sketch/challenge as shown above.

Valentine's Day is all about red, pink and some white to show pureness. Thus, this card is no exceptional while there are some challenges that challenge us to use these colors only. A red textured cardstock is trimmed rectangular to use as the base.

Close-up : White oval with 'L♥VE' 
A white cardstock is used to stamp 'L♥VE' from Hero Arts CL266 Mix and Match Elements all over using opera pink ink. In order to make the message significant, one of the 'L♥VE' is stamped in gold ink. There is no images used in this card and it is purposely done so. The stamped white cardstock is then trimmed into oval. A yellow heart gem is attached onto the ♥ of 'L♥VE'.
Close-up : Yellow heart gem on the gold inked ♥ 

Close-up : Hearts scalloped strips 
A pink cardstock is used to stamp a row of hearts from Studio G Series 42 VC0022 Mother is the Heart of the Home repeatedly. The hearts are colored with pink marker interval in between hearts. It is then scalloped on both end and trimmed into 1" and 0.5" width strips. Both the strips are arranged according to the layout on the textured red cardstock. The white oval is attached onto the strips as shown in the layout.

Close-up : The ribbons arrangement
Pink ribbon with hearts are secured to the far left side of the red cardstock. Another red ribbon with scalloped at both ends is secured beside the pink ribbon.
