Valentine Kites

Happy Thursday!  Today I have a whimsical little card to share with you.  Last weekend a few goodies I had ordered during after Christmas sales arrived and I headed up to the studio just to play! 


I've been trying to use a little old with everything new lately, so for this card I decided to pair the BasicGrey Manila Basics paper with some BoBunny and Graphic 45 papers.  The lined heart from the Love Notes set is embossed onto vellum in Antique Linen, then I embossed the Valentine sentiment in Early Espresso and edged it with Copper Stickles.  The striped aqua heart is cut with the Jotted Heart Die.  The kites are from the To the Moon set, and I popped the top halves of them up with dimensionals and coated with a mixture of glitter and diamond glaze.   The smaller heart is clear embossed with one of the hearts from the Love Notes set, then cut out and popped over the rounded banner in coordinating papers.  I also die cut a little aqua border and accented with some turquoise pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.  Next I added a few little buttons and a pink frosted pearl and a bit of May Arts ribbon to finish it off.


Enabler's List:
Stamps: Love Notes, To the Moon (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Crush (Bo Bunny), Manila Basics (BasicGrey), Once Upon a Springtime (Graphic 45), Brown Bag (Paper Accents)
Ink: Antique Linen, Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress)
Accessories: Jotted Heart Die (Verve Stamps), buttons, pearls & rhinestones and iridescent cording (Pizzazz Aplenty), Little Open Scallop Strip and Rounded Banner Tio (Die-namics by MFT), Copper Stickles, detail embossing powder, Diamond Glaze, glitter, May Arts ribbon
