Valentine’s Card

So last year I made a boo-boo coz my boyfriend and I agreed not to bother on Valentine’s Day so I didn’t but he actually did so I felt really bad! I decided then I’d make sure I made him a card this year just in case! 

I’ve been waiting for this Lawn Fawn stamp set for ages (it’s been out of stock whenever I’ve tried to buy it!) so when it became available I made sure I got it. I have had bad arthritis recently so didn’t manage to make a background myself (usually when doing a night sky I’d use Distress Inks and blend a few colours together) so I just used navy blue card.

I heat embossed the star constellations with silver embossing powder. I then stamped and coloured in the Fox and Rabbit and hand-cut them out (I don’t have the matching die set). 

I cut a curve into some scrap paper and used it as a mask to create a small hill using some distress ink. I stuck the Fox & Rabbit on top of it using small foam squares.

I had some scrap paper strips from when I’d previously made a ‘galaxy’ style background so I used one for my sentiment from the same stamp set and heat embossed using Copper embossing powder. I stuck this the base of the ‘hill’.

Next I stuck the whole thing onto some dark pink/magenta(?) card that I’d cut for a base. 

Finally I added some sequins.

I like the change from the traditional red Valentine so hope my boyfriend likes it! I know he’ll enjoy the dinner I’m going to cook him tomorrow (seriously, what man doesn’t like steak?!) so I won’t be a bad girlfriend this year!
