King of Hearts

Even though I am not participating in the traditional Valentine holiday. I did make valentines for all of my co-workers. This card was made for my friend David. He's a big softy and likes to think he is in charge. He wears his heart on his sleeve so I thought he deserved to be the King of Hearts for the occasion.

I has so much fun making valentine cards that now I have an overflow. I am a rockstar kinda girl and I love this paper. I used paper mache paper to cut out the heart and I used a glossy gold and embossed the edges with gold to make it stand out. The only stamp I used on this card was the XOXO and I have no idea where it came from. I borrowed it from my Aunt.

I have come to realise a few things about blogging. It take lots of time and patience. I tend to stamp once a month and make 8-10 projects at a time. I thought that if I uploaded all my images I could just make a blog every week. But.. I don't. This week however, I am proud to upload and share my projects. Things have been a little tense around her, so I blew off stress by buying a ton of paper at my scrapbook store. I was inspired by a last years keepsake magazine. lol I know I didn't even have a chance to go through this months issue.
The sketch is a set up, two pieces of coordinating paper and a side ribbon or piece of cardstock through the middle. I stamped the hearts in coordinating colors and tied a heart charm with a small ribbon. The colors are not as bold online but this was one of my favorites simple but elegant.
