52 Cards Wk5: Valentines Card

For this weeks 52 Cards Challenge Nat dived into her prompt jar and pulled out three prompts for us to use
The first idea which springs to mind on seeing these prompts is obviously Valentines Day. Luckily for me on Tuesday I room delivery of the Beloved paper pad from Fancy Pants which has some lovey dovey Valentines designs but also some which can be used all year round which is why I brought it (that and also to make my order of page protectors look more interesting lol). So using my new papers and some glitter card stock, once I could find it, I made this card for Ian. 
I didn't want it to be too pink as obviously it is for a guy and not for me lol, so I chose the blue triangle paper to sit with the gorgeous watercolour effect heart paper. I used some XCut nested heart dies to cut the hearts from glitter card, I've noticed in using my Big Shot more since making cards which is good. The heart trim is from a roll I've had in my stash for ages. The sentiment is made using Authentique letter stickers. 


  1. I found I use my Big Shot a lot more for cards also Jess - and having some standard dies made it so much easier too! Very pretty - hope Ian likes it. x

  2. Beautiful card :) (fancy making one for mark? ;)

  3. Awww so lovely - hope Ian isn't one your blog readers LOL!! I use my Big Kick a lot for both cards and scrapbooking, it is always so satisfying to make your own embellishments instead of buying them x

  4. Beautiful card Jess, I love that watercolour heart paper and the glittery hearts! :)

  5. Love that water color effect paper.
