Valentine Card - DT Challenge

Today's "DT Post Card"

I couldn't wait for this challenge as I was excited to share this A2 sized card mini-album!

I love how striking the front is.  I used pinkie/red/black/white papers to create this layout.  I made my own bow and added a bling in the middle of the bow.  I also added some red/white polka dot ribbon on this card from Stampin Up as well.

I created this little envelop pull out.  I again sewed and made the envelope well decorated too as I added this wonderful heart image which I die cut with spellbinders dies.  I made a black tag to pull out and then used some glittery red ribbon to it as the pull!  Lastly I used Amy R's love stamp set and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on the black card stock.  I love it!

For the insideI again did very similar things to the inside as I had for the front.  Layering, sewing, embossing, and adding a few extra elements.  I added a pocket, some bling, a few stickers, and I made a few tags too!

This little pocket to the left could be a place not only for a little tag pull out, but you could put a gift card inside as well for your recipient!

I really loved this project.  It is fun and bright and colourful.  I love how the black really helps make it pop!  The little elements as the tags and pullouts really help to create a fun card/album!

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Please check out the other DT members' projects!  Thanks so much for joining me for this Challenge over at Stamps & fun = Creativity!
