Valentine's A Day Late

OK, I know I'm a day late for Valentine's Day, but I had to share this adorable card I created for my son for Valentine's Day.  It can sometimes be a bit tricky to create a Valentine's Day card for a boy, pinks can make that a challenge, LOL.

This little Magnolia sailor is just hanging around ready to pledge how " Hooked on U" he is.  The card base is a modified Joy Fold card using  my Cheery Lynn Dies  French Flair Scalloped Stackers and the French Pastry Doily and my handy dandy Scor-Pal.   

The interior of the card is adorned using several dies, Coved Rectangle Classic Die  and my favorite Two of Hearts.   The hearts are just stunning in person, so much detail, you certainly will use these a lot more than just Valentines Day.  

Did you know that Cheery Lynn has a weekly challenge each week that you could win a $20 gift certificate....Check it out here. 

Be sure to check out Cheery Lynn's Main Blog also for tons of inspiration and some great tutorials.

Don't Box Me In

KaiserCraft offers so many beyond the page projects that are ready to be altered and added.  They have anything from mini chests, frames, plaques and this little purse box that would be perfect to hold a gift, or just be the gift.  

The collection I used from KasierCraft is the Botanical Odyssey that was just released last month.  It offers the hot color combo of turquoise and purple.   Just look in any of the fashion catalogs and you'll see it being used.  I love to look for inspiration on in fashion mags and see how to convert it over to my work.  

See you on Friday with another sweet post using Cheery Lynn Dies.

Die Cuts Make it Elegant

This card just screams elegant to me.  Granted the collection I used from KasierCraft " Botanical Odyssey "  is stunning, but I really feel it's the use of the dies that really just push it over the top.  The boldness of the black background makes it stand out and really highlight the base die.  

I stacked numerous dies giving the card a lot of depth.  

I hope you have a wonderful week and I'll see you again on Wednesday.
