Valentine's Day card

Happy Friday! I have a Valentines Day  card to share with you . Since Valentine's Day is really not that far away , I'm trying to get a head start on my cardmaking. I made this card for my hubby.....

My DH gave me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas , which I love!!! I purchased the "Key to my Heart" cutfile from the online file. I love that I can color this file right on my Silhouette  , print it (on my printer) and then cut it out on my SC . But for this particular card, I kept things pretty simple ( hubby likes CAS !), so I just cut it out on American Crafts black cardstock. This is my fav paper for both my Cricut and Cameo - it cuts so smoothly and doesn't leave a mess of  paper fibers behind. CTMH cardstock is also nice for these machines.
Anyhooo, back to my card! The vintage looking papers are from Glitz . The lace trim is from Melissa Frances and the inside greeting is a Tim Holtz stamp ( I love that it looks like I hand wrote it!!). The edges are inked with CTMH's Sorbet ink and finished off with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The metal hearts were purchased at Walmart and I think they are for jewelery making but I'd rather it on a card!! I diecut the doily heart on my Cricut using my go-to cartridge, Art Philosophy. Again I inked it up with Sorbet.
I'm entering this card over at Cut It Up for their In With The New Challenge #10.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today .....have a great weekend!!!

  3. I also love the way CTMH papers cut on the Cricut and on my Gazelle, but I wish the color went all the way through and their cores weren't white. I hate that!! "Anyhoo," Beautiful card. Your husband will love it! Thanks for linking it to Cut it Up challenges!
