Linda's Pink Valentine

Linda is back with a gorgeous Valentine!!!

The Christmas holidays are behind us and it's time to start looking to the new year ahead.  Since the stores are full of things to remind us that Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I decided that my first card of 2012 should be a Valentine card.

Instead of using the traditional red for this card, I chose to go with pink.    If you haven't figured it out by now, pink is one of my favorite colors to use in cardmaking.  I just seem to always be drawn to that color!

I started by matting the card with some Valentine DP from my collection.  I then layered a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Heart and added the Heart Within My Heart from Cheery Lynn Designs. Don't forget to save the punchouts!  They will work well inside this card, on another card, or the small hearts can be used for confetti! The hearts were cut from the Rose Quartz cardstock.  This Heart Within My Heart die is so versatile that it is great for a Valentine card but would be great for a wedding or engagement card as well.

To add interest to the card front, I used Nestabling Scalloped Heart Pink Pearls and regular pink pearls, both from Want2Scrap.  The saying on the card is from an outline sticker sheet called "Happy Valentine" and the gold outline hearts are from a sticker sheet called "With Love".  I used 1/4 " Scor-Tape to adhere all the layers and the Joy Foam Pads Small to pop up the Heart Within My Heart die.

Beverly has several different Cheery Lynn Designs and Spellbinders heart dies in the Classy Cards 'n Such shop, any of which would be a great addition to your Valentine cards.  Also take a look at the beautiful Want2Scrap pearls and rhinestones she has.  They add so much interest to your cards.
