Circle Valentine Card

Here's a little Valentine I put together.

I used my Silhouette to create a simple circle card.  It's 5 inches in diameter.  I cut a grey circle to cover the entire card front and hide the fold.  I sprayed that layer with some Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.

I cut a frame in some dark grey cardstock to give a nice clean edge to the card.

The heart was cut from plain white cardstock.  I sponged the Distress Ink colors Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, and Picked Raspberry.  Then I ran the colored heart through my Cuttlebug folder Textile.  After the embossing I used a little Weathered Wood Distress Ink across the embossed parts to give a little more depth.  I added the heart to the card with a thin layer of foam tape.

The fun banner was also cut from my Silhoutte.  It's image id is #38321.  I stamped on the banner with a Martha Stewart Valentine's set using Versamark ink and then I embossed using some Stampin' Up embossing powder in silver.  I placed a thin layer of foam tape in the center of the banner, and some thick pop dots on the sides so the banner would sit a little higher than the heart.

Wah lah!  This card was actually pretty simple and went together really quickly, but I think it has a big impact.

Thanks so very much for visiting today :)
