Love in Any Language

Does that title get anyone else's head singing? Maybe I'm showing my age, but that old Sandi Patti song is forever burned in there :) Anyway, this new little set is perfect for quick and easy (or creative and complicated), Valentine's cards or just to say "I Love You" anytime... this one is pretty simple, since we'll be doing this one at club, but it's got some extra interest with the cutouts, pop-ups and especially the ruffle trim on the sentiment heart, inspired by the birds feathers. I love how easy this stuff is to manipulate for a really pretty touch.

This is the Sale-a-Bration embossing folder, which I also used to represent snow on two recent cards.

Challenges I used:

Clean and Simple Stamping - (see sketch below)
Create With Connie and Mary - (see palette below)
Handstamped Sentiments - (see inspiration photo below)
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Little Red Wagon - New Beginnings (or New Scrappy Stuff ;)
Pile it On - Just Because (I love you)

  2. Love the ruffled heart and the embossed background, great card. Thanks for sharing with us over at Little Red Wagon this week.

  3. Oh...I remember that song too! I used to be the director of a group that performed music in sign language and that was one of the songs we use to always perform! What a great card!
