I’ve always loved giving and receiving valentines, and it’s even more fun, now that I make them by hand.

Sent With Love

 

Today’s Valentine has a watercolored wash background that I prepared a while ago. I remember using Thick Whisper White Cardstock with Flirty Flamingo Ink, letting water wash over it until it became this pretty, pastel pink. While it was still damp, I let it dry under the weight of heavy books.

Today, I trimmed the top and bottom with a Be Mine Stitched Die, and embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder.

The heart is from the same die set, where I left the center cut intact.

 

“Sent with love” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

I “tied” the sentiment to the heart with Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.

 

The Valentine’s Day colors are from Global Design Project.

And, I interpreted the circle as a heart in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
