Love You Valentine

Good Monday Morning!
Donna Phelan here to share a Valentine card with you.  It's tomorrow, hope you're ready!

I used the Distressed Windham Collage die by Memory Box to create my background.  This is an awesome die set as you get 4 different shapes and designs in the set.  A couple of different Spellbinders dies were also used, Hearts and Classic Ovals.  The corner die is Lace Corner Deco H by Cheery Lynn.  This particular set also has multi dies, 3 of them in different styles.  I always look for die sets that offer more than one choice, thus giving me an array of options when creating cards.

I happened to find this Love You die in my stash, but if you check out the Dies R Us Store you'll be able to see quite a variety of suitable Love You dies.  Here are just a few.

Die Versions
Sweet Wordlets
I Love You

Frantic Stamper
Handwritten, I Love You

Paper Smooches
I Love You

Polka Dot Designer Paper and Vellum card stocks.  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder for texture.  Red Sequins and Crystal Drops in Red Berry for accents.

I am calling this a Faux Shaker card, kind of looks like one, but is not.

Here's what I used:

Distress Windham Collage
Memory Box

Lace Corner Deco H
Cheery Lynn
