Today, I'm joining with several designers from The Twinery to share a few Valentines Day/ Love themed cards. Be sure to hop over to The Twinery's blog for all the other samples as well as the fun hop celebration and prize information we are having this whole week!
My first card today is for a baby or child - every mom's child is their baby, no matter what their age, right? I always sang the "Twinkle, Twinkle little star" song to my babies when they were little as well as all the little ones I've babysat for over the years, so when I saw this Verse stamp set, I knew I had to have it.
I decided to go CAS and tone on tone with it - using fine linen and white cardstock along with vellum for a soft feel. The stars were colored with a gold glitter pen and the perfect compliment to the soft color scheme is my favorite new gold shimmer twine.
My next card was made with a favorite verse of mine (another Verve stamp set). Just a few weeks before I met my husband, I was given this verse by a fellow teacher friend as a reminder that the Lord cares for His children and is concerned about the desires that we have. She encouraged me to look to Him and continue on with the path that the Lord had given me and to have faith that if the Lord had put a desire in my heart to wait on Him for the fulfillment of it. We were talking in the context of finding/meeting that special someone, but of course the truth is much broader than that.
I'm always reminded of our conversation and how much she encouraged me in the Lord when I see this verse - so, once again I had to have it! I think I'll give this one to my husband for Valentines' Day this year...
This time, I my favorite neutral Flax twine along with a pop of Maraschino Twine to accent the reds in the ribbon.
My last card is a traditional Valentine that I made with a stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy, a paper doily (a favorite of mine) and some sweet Strawberry twine.
