Cutie Pie, Please Be Mine!

Greetings! Valentine's Day is coming soon and I continue to work on cards for the special people in my life. It is such a privilege to be able to let others know how much you care, don't you think? This sweet little Valentine is made with images and sentiments from the Cutie Pie plate by Artistic Outpost. I have really enjoyed working with this plate of stamps and have been able to use them for a number of different styles of Valentines. For this Valentine, I layered gingham check designer paper onto a blue panel and matted the panel onto a red mat. The majorette was stamped multiple times with Memento ink and Faded Jeans Distress Ink and pieced together. The majorette and puppy were watercolored with Distress ink. I stamped multiple hearts and added some of them with pop dots for dimension. The red doily was backed with white card stock to emphasize the lacy effect and I finished the panel off with some Red Stickles Glitter Glue and ribbons and mounted the completed panel onto a white card base. Thanks for taking time to drop by. Happy Monday! Yvonne
