I chose the Funny Kinda Love – Big Grins stamp set and CUTplorations Clustered Hearts die to create a valentine for my hubby. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set – the sentiments are funny and really hit ‘close to home’ as I find myself dealing with early stages of senility.
Ed has a great sense of humor and will love this! I created an inlaid die cut on the panel above the stamped and colored image and layered the panel on foam. I wanted some valentine-y love kind of stuff on the card but not overdone, so I used red dotted paper and added a few white flat-back pearls and a doily.
I decorated the inside panel with a leftover strip of the dotted paper used on the front. I stamped a simple sentiment and a heart on the panel and layered it on red cardstock.
One final look… I love how this turned out!
