For my Valentine

Here's the card that I made for my special guy for Valentine's Day. The glittery heart is a foam sticker that I picked up at a local art store and I designed my card around it as the focal point. The white heart background is made using a Fiskars embossing plate; black and silver ribbon and the clear "love" tile (attached with Francheville white brads) are both from a discount shop.

Here be dragons

I had fun making this card for my better half's birthday. He enjoys reading fantasy books, especially ones with dragons, so this Elusive Images dragon stamp is perfect for him. The sentiment and flourish are from the same set and I made them into a scroll. I've tried to give the card a distressed look as I imagine most papers would get pretty worn around fire-breathing dragons! Image is heat embossed in bronze; Kaisercraft papers; netting ribbon and big brads from my stash.
