Time for Love

Valentines is the time for love. Appreciating thoes that are close to you and thoes that are far away. What better way to express your feelings with a handmade card for your loved ones?! I just love to paper craft(as I have said many times)! I cant wait to make my projects as soon as they pop into my head. It usually takes me a full day to make just one card. I cant just slap some paper together and call it good. It is a representaion of my skills and talents and I want it to look great. I want that 'wow' factor! I made this card using some embossed paper I got over 2 years ago that has sat untouched. I think it turned out well. Of course there are always a few tings that I think I would change for next time but all in all I give it the stamp of approval! ~*Jen*~

I started out by picking my Valentines type colors and paper~

Planned out my cuts on my Gypsy~

Laid out my paper on my mats and cut~

Got a little paper doily for the envelope~

Filled it full of 'love'~

Put together my ribbon on my card~

Glued on a ribbon bow, the envelope and the greeting :D The result is a fun card to share with anyone!
