My Design Team Card for Glitter Geeks ...To The One I Love..

Another Friday and another Glitter Geeks Challenge.

This weeks challenge is

To The One I Love

Ingredients used to make this card...

K&Company 12x12 Teal and Gold Dots and Swirls Glitter Paper/K&Company 12x12 Teal and Floral and Letter Paper/Tim Holtz Clear Stamp - Urban Grunge/Memento Ink - Rich Cocoa/Letraset Promarker pen in Henna/Kanban greetings/Tim Holtz Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy/East of India Heart Tag and Tunnel of Love Ticket/Decorative heart ribbon/Hat pins/Vintage buttons/Papermania 8x8 kraft cardblank x 2.

How I made this card.....

Use your two 8x8 card blanks to create an easel card.

Cover with the Teal and Gold Dots paper.

Stamp 'Love' from the stamp set onto the Floral and letter paper. Tear around the edges and ink them using the ink and a sponge, hand write Happy Valentine's Day along the bottom and add a vintage button. Attach to the top right corner with foam pads.

Attach a length of ribbon down the left hand side of the card blank, looping back on itself to create three loops. Stick in the hat pins as shown. Add the East of India heart tag and the greetings.

Along the base of the easel add a length of ribbon. Add the Tunnel of Love Ticket using foam pads to create your easel stopper.Stick ribbon next to this, looping as before.

To finish glue some vintage buttons randomly in the left hand corner of the base.

I am going to give my husband this card for Valentine's Day...I like it as its a change from the usual Valentine's Day colour's of red.

I look forward to seeing your 'Love' Creations over at the Glitter Geeks this week,
have fun and happy crafting,
lots of love
