Good morning! Ivana here today, with another project to share with you. The project I am sharing today, is all about love and Valentine’s Day. With only a week until this love-filled celebration, I couldn’t help but get inspired to create something for the occasion.
I wanted to create something romantic, and elegant, but a little different than the usual pink/red combination we see with Valentine’s Day designs. So I found the perfect paper to use in the Crea Diem collection! A soft lilac, with pink undertones, it was just what I was looking for!
I added a fair amount of stamping to this project, using stamps from The Craft’s Meow and Papertrey Ink. I also added in a few dark brown accents, using Maja Design paper form the Vintage Summer Basics Collection.
For the bottom of the card, I layered a die-cut felt heart, onto a banner, which I die-cut from the same paper I used on the base of the card. I added a bit of lace, liquid pearls and some stamped leaves for lots of pretty layers and feminine touches.
I had a few scraps left over from making the card, so I made this little tag to match!
All the elements are the same, just arranged into a little tag instead of a card.
Supplies: Patterned Paper by Maja Design (Crea Diem: Fylld Av Karlek, Vintage Summer Basics:1905), White Cardstock, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain, Versa Magic Ink (Pixie Dust, Spring Pansy) Papertrey Ink Dies (Button Boutique, Life is Sweet, In Stitches, Tiny Tags, Heart Prints), Papertrey Ink Stamps (Life Is Sweet), The Craft’s Meow Stamps (Stitched Sentiments, Inspired by Audrey), Liquid Pearls, items from my stash (button, pin, lace, felt, glitter).
If you’re stuck on ideas for Valentine’s Day projects, I hope you’ll think of all the beautiful colors that are so lovely for this special day, even if they don’t fit into the red or pink family! And with all the beautiful choices of paper colors Maja Design offers, I am sure it will be very had to pick just one color combo…I know it is for me!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
