Who, being loved, is poor? ~Oscar Wilde
That would not be me…. I have so many wonderful family & friends who love me, least not my son. I have the wealthiest of hearts. (I needed that intro)
So, this morning at 2:30 am my wonderful son sent me a text. He is in Italy attending NYU this year & last night lost his wallet which included a debit & credit card, school & state ID, & passport card. Ouch! so for ann hour we ran thru all the things he needed to do (or rather I have to do – since he does not have access to a phone). The final text said “some girl found it” I’m like how do you know? “she faced booked me. technology can be wonderful – right!
That resolved it is now 3:30 am & I am wide awake. I had one final Valentines card to make for my friend Mike who already purchased 3 cards. (He’s a good guy – they are for his mom, MIL, wife & daughter – not 4 GF’s). So what better time to do it then when I was wide-eyed & bushy-tailed as opposed to being totally wiped out after a challenging day of work. So, I decided to challenge myself as well. (nice lead in right?)
SIP Challenge 34 – Love! was the perfect challenge for my Final Valentine’s day card (for 2016).
I was inspired quickly, and went to work. I had a few changes from where I would have liked to go with the card. Let me show you the card first (which I am pleased with) and then I will tell you the few changes I would like to have made…..
It’s not clear in a photo but the hearts are cut with my brother scan & cut and popped up from the card base with dimensionals. The color is lying flat on the card base.
I really wanted to have a variegated color effect from left to right & use 3 different colors. Only at that ungodly hour my mind could not work on color combinations so I felt going monochromatic was my best bet.
I also wanted to use the inlay Technique with the work “Love” in the lower right of the card with some patterned paper, only my letters were too small & my new larger ones have not yet arrived. Bummer!
Looking at the picture – I wish my sentiment was centered under the hearts and the ribbon was Vertical on the left. Next year – right?
Thanks for stopping by – hope you enjoyed the card.
