Last Two Valentines

This valentine was for our son and daughter-in-law. I started with a pre-embossed ivory glossy heart and cut a card base in the same shape to glue it on. I stamped the sentiment on it and added the roses. It looked quite plain, so I colored the hearts and tiny dots with a Copic marker. That made a world of difference.
This one for our younger grandson is very similar to the one I made for the older grandson. This one is not paper-pieced - just colored. I cut it out with a Quickutz die and added Diamond Glaze to the hearts. The turtle and sentiment are from Fiskars. I added a couple of the punched hearts and sponged some red around the edges. The rows of hearts were punched with a Martha Stewart border punch, and I scored the lines with my Scor-Pal.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

These are wonderful, Lynette! Gosh, the heart is so beautiful, and it looks just like a box of candy. Love the double punched border on the second card. The perfect accent for that cute image!
