Check This Out!!!

Here is the Valentine's Day card I think I'm going to give my hubby!!! We usually don't exchange cards but I am thinking this year I may pamper him a bit. He's been SO good to me and ever SO supportive of me and my quirky ways!!! Personally I wouldn't tolerate it!!! LOL SO this year I'm planning a few fun surprises for him. Yes, including meatloaf. Probably not in a heart shape. I prefer to not to have to touch the meat much so forming it in a heart wouldn't be on the agenda!!! But hey, it's still meatloaf and he will LOVE it!!!

Now what I want you to check out on this card is the background!!! I call it "Confetti Background." It's a new technique that I came up with and thought you should see it in "action!" Tomorrow I will be posting the technique page for the next set of 20 pages and the instructions for you to give this a try too!! It is really very easy and fun to do!!!

This card was made using the Stampin' Up! "Love You Much" set. I have a lot of cards made using this set and I think it's time to find a different set to play with and let the rubber on this one cool off!!! LOL

The colors I used on this card are Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Whisper White and Watercolor paper.

I added some dots with the white gel pen and some paper piercing in the corners of the stamped image. The heart inside the "Love" is raised up on a Dimensional. The little flower is punched out and added to the white card stock using a brad. I tied on a bow and then taped it all together.

It was fun to make, especially that background!!!! Stay tuned tomorrow to learn how to make your own "Confetti Background!"

Thank you SO much for visiting my blog today,

Beautiful card (as all of yours seem to be)! I'm thinking I'm going to have to do something similar for my husband, though it might not be until after the holiday (depends upon when we're able to get taxes back). He does so much for us (full-time school and full-time work), and I'd love to show him just how appreciative I am. :) Thanks for the inspiration!

The card is beautiful! It is really inspiring me to go make some cards myself - oh wait I have to write a unit plan for school - oh rats!
