This week at LOTV we are challenging you to make a Valentines card. As you can see I have made another easel card (I adore these cards!).

Having made the base card I then covered each section with silver mirri card and a heart design paper. I then cut a strip of red card and onto this placed white paper with a heart border edge and added some red ric-rac ribbon. This was placed along the bottom of both sections. I stamped and layered the sentiment and attached to the lower section with foam pads. The image on the top section is one of LOTV's new Spring release stamps called 'Over The Garden Wall' which I coloured with pencils. I finished the card by adding punched flowers and a silver heart button.

Card Recipe

Stamps - LOTV/Penny Black
Paper - Mad About Cards
Ribbon/Pearls/Button - Stash

Thanks for looking.

What a pretty card, Christine. I love all the punchwork (I've used the middle throwaway bits on my DT card) and the fresh red and white colour scheme.
