Valentine Sampler Card

If you ordered from me this month, you should have received one of these cards (along with a list of ingredients) in the bag with your other goodies! I just had to show you how well some of my favorite things go together... and I had a hankering to see what I could do in the way of a Valentine without using pink or red! I chose instead Rich Razzleberry and Basic Gray elements. The patterned paper is from the Cottage Wall set, the rectangular scalloped panels come pre-cut (now, that's a time-saver!) in the Occasions mini catalog and are called "hugs". I also used the "faux brad" technique described in an earlier post, punching those and the leaf element from brushed silver metallic card stock.

I want to encourage you to make an extra Valentine this year, and give it to someone who may not receive one from a sweetheart or family member. We all need to know that we matter, that we're cherished.
