Happy Valentine's Day!
Another lovey holiday has come upon us. It's kind of been a crappy day actually. I did get flowers yesterday and today too. That was nice. But...I woke up nauseous from the new "crotch cancer fightin' pills" they gave me. It made me late for work which started the whole day off wrong. It was a super busy day which I suppose made the day go by fast, but I was still sitting there lonely for sheer fact of the holiday waving it's big stupid cupid baby in my face. And to make the holiday even more fantastic is the fact that my beau just happened to bring up how he dislikes the holiday due to something concerning his ex who's been on his mind, and now he's not sure if he's even into being in a relationship right now. Would it be okay if I just cry for a second? Oops, too late to ask for permission. Here it comes... Arg! Soldiers are supposed to be able to control this. Okay. Okay. It's over. We're trained to suppress things. LOL! Why am I always rebound girl? Anyway, HAPPY Valentine's Day! Here's what I did: I used the Scenic Route Loveland collection for this card because I super duper LOVE IT! I love all their paper. Anyhow, I cut the pink circle with my Circle Scissor using mark 150 which made the card slightly smaller than 6" across. I wanted it to fit in a 6x6 envelope so this worked out well. I made sure to leave the top edge uncut, so I would still have a card that opens. I then took the Scrap Strip (my favorite) and cut the strips into 3/4" wide pieces and adhered them with a tape runner. I then used Basic Black from SU! to faux stitch the edges. The polka dot heart blended in too much with the top strip also being white-based so I inked the edges of the heart in Lipstick Red ColorBox chalk ink. The 'X' and 'O' are self adhesive pieces of chipboard from Basicgrey. I used the same chalk ink to tint them to match before adhering. The green gingham ribbon is from American Crafts and the tiny little rhinestones are adhered with Stickles for double glitz. And...that's it!
