All you need is Love...

Here is my question...why do I always use black on Valentines Day cards? I really don't have a problem with the holiday. They probably aren't as romantic after 10 years of marriage but that is a whole 'nother topic right? :)

So here is my card...with some black on it...and no bling and no bows...what is the world coming to?

I cut the hearts out for another card and realized...hey I can use the negative! I was so inspired by this card that I had to give this a shot! See, I told you yesterday I was trying to use more felt! Look at me now!!

So that's it for today!  We had a snow day yesterday so I have been having lots of fun with my kiddos!  B is making me plastic waffles right now!  So cute!  Hope your day is good too!



Supplies all PTI unless noted...Yes...a supply list!!!

Stamps: A little Argyle, Fillable Frames #11
Paper: True black (why?), White SS
Ink: Razz Fizz, True Black
Misc: Simply Chartreuse Felt, Rose bud, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Heart Dies, Mat Stack Die

  5. Oh, I use black on V Day cards all of the time. I think it looks sophisticated and not as girly that way. I love the card and I think using the negative was a great idea!
