Silhouette Valentine Card & Blog Hop News!

Today I promised to share the project I made with yesterdays giveaway SVG file, here it is, a cute and simple valentine card...
Supply List - Sarah Hurley Silhouette Shapes - Valentine Heart (please see previous post) and Kissing Couple (available from the Silhouette store), Card Blank, kraft card, white card - Craftwork Cards, Heart Paper, Grace Taylor Vintage Romance  (available from Trimcraft Stockists), Stripe Paper - Magnolia, 3D foam, Red Flexmarker

I cut the heart twice - once with the wording in the centre on a red and white striped paper and once without the wording on, as a solid shape, from white paper. I also used one of my other Silhouette shapes, this cute kissing couple, cutting it out of kraft card.

I layered the hearts together with 3D foam but I didn't like the way the stripes looked against the heart paper and I didn't think the wording stood out enough, so I used a red flexmarker to carefully colour in the top heart - you can still see the stripes but it's a more subtle tone on tone look now and the bold red stands out much better against the hearts,  you can also see the wording much more clearly!

Also, I wanted to let you know, that we are holding a Blog Hop to celebrate the launch of my new website, for all the details and to join in, please click here or pop back here on Saturday!

Thank you for dropping by today!
