http://acreativemint.typepad.com/a_creative_mint/ The combination of lilac and orange was stunning, so I decided to make a Valentine card for my husband which reflects his "somewhat offbeat" personality. Nathan is always looking for some way to turn the ordinary quirky. He brings a smile to my face every single day and, after twenty-five years of marriage, we truly are soul mates, best friends, and all the other cliches.
The card was made with all Close to My Heart stamps, papers, and inks. I used Lilac Mist, Spring Iris and Taffy paper, although the Taffy was the double sided textured one and I used the lighter side. I sponged with Sorbet ink over the Taffy paer to edge the heart and scalloped background "ribbon" and sponged some Spring Iris ink to the right side of the Taffy heart.
I thought it turned out both beautiful and offbeat, which perfectly describes the love I have for my funny Valentine.
Until next time,
