Yup it’s the heart day! We don’t really do anything exchange cards for valentines day… although this year it being all weird with lockdown etc I did order a special cheesecake to celebrate!
Anyways I did make a card for both the hubby and one for the teenager… because well why not?
I used a scrap of the Tim Holtz collage tissue paper and then some stamping for my card for the hubby. I added some sewing and some splats of Cherry Cobbler and Black gesso.
As the focal point I added the embossed heart which is my favourite Darcy heart. I coloured the heart with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin Blends and then adding the ink around the edge of the panel. I found an old stamp with the right sentiment and added that too.
I added the panel and then some doodles round the card. I also added the star sequin for a finishing touch.

For the teenager I went for a completely different look but also a Darcy heart and some sewing!
I used dsp from the stash in several layers with a layer of the white cardstock. I also added some lace tape some stamped and inked card and a Darcy heart which I raised on dimensionals. I love the sewn element with the contrasting pink thread. I also added the gem and the sentiment.

Both cards are lovely Catherine but I especially like the masculine one you entered in our Addicted to CAS challenge. I love that you kept your collage style grouping to one corner of the panel and kept to a strict colour palette. What a great idea to have a heart-shaped cheesecake (must make a note of that!) Thanks for coming to play with us at Addicted to CAS 🙂 Vicky x
