Hello wednesday - Valentine Card

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday  "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

Was just "Meant to be". Two into one.

I was really pleased with myself, I had made two Valentine cards in an evening.  Remember I am not a card maker, so I do struggle a bit, this was a big achievement!

The first card was I thought very "clean and simple" a large red card with the sweetie heart ribbon running across the centre, white stitching around the outside.   

I had been looking for my white pen so I could do some faux stitching around the edge, stupid me I was sat in front of my sewing machine - use that you silly thing! 

I added the kiss me label of folded ribbon on the last whizz round. Finished, I loved it. By the way this Valentine Ribbon - Sweetie Heart is selling out fast, at the moment it is not repeatable.

Next was a smaller white card, I wanted to use some of the Alpha Tags and a bow. The tags were just perfect to portray my message of love. 

I had also taken a shine to the NEW wide polka dot ribbon, not very valentinie, but it was a perfect colour match to bring all the elements of my card together.

I cut away the edges of the polka dot ribbon and frayed them slightly before sewing them onto the card using a zig zag stitch. 

Tying the sheer bow and adding the tags was easly done with a few 3D foam pads.  That's it card two finished. It all sounds very quick, but this had taken me several hours, putting the ribbon here, taking it off, moving it around a bit. I am sure you know what I mean.

I put them down on the table, ready to take into the office the next morning. Two Valentine projects completed and I was a week early!


The next morning I thought the fairies had waved their magic wand during the night, I woke up to find this card on my desk!!!

It was meant to be.......
