"I Love You Dearly"

Wednesday, February 9, 2011


I know, I said I only make one Valentines Day card a year, but I just had to make one more.

This card was colored with Prisma-Color Pencils. Before I got my Copics, this was all that I colored with. Now as you can clearly see, I'm out of practice.

Here is the card for the day;

"I Love You Dearly"



The image as you can see is a Magnolia called "Tilda withRose". Very appropriate for a Valentines Day card. The corners of the card mat were run through a Fiskars hand crimper called "Wavey". Each corner was feed into the crimper as shown in the picture below.



If you don't have a crimper, you could also use you Scor-Pal. It might take alittle longer, but it will get the job done.

The flowers are from Michaels and are called "Boutique Fluer" from thier "Reflection" line of craft items. They look a little like the Wild Orchid collection and come in a full range of colors. A few dots of Stickles was added. The bow I actually made my self with out getting Rose involved. She said it was acceptable and I could go ahead and use it.

The sentiment was stamped directly on the image. I am not that happy with the results, but it will suffice.

Hope you enjoy my effort, and will leave a comment.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

Bob L.

    Wonderful idea to use your crimper on the corners! Love it! I've got to go find my crimper now. Your card is beautiful and your bow is great! I just saw your other vday card and your wife is definitely a master bow maker. That heart card is fabulous too. Hugs, Rosemary :)

    Darling card Bob! I've never seen a wavy crimper like that - it's fabulous! Love the way it pulls the rest of the card together and really showcases Tilda...Thanks for sharing...Barb

    It's very cute, Bob. It made me giggle that you "got permission" to use the bow. It's a very good bow! Thanks for sharing.

    Bob your card is so pretty! I really like the crimper effect. I will have to try it with my MS scoring board. Very sweet card and I like the new layout of your site too! I didn't realize it was yours until I saw your name. Very cool look!

    Hugs,

    Jackie

    Love it (but not as much as your wife will!) :o) I think all your extra touches really make this card special. I love how you stamped the sentiment right on the image! I'll have to try that, sometime!
