The card began with some simple stenciling using the color Party Dress from Catherine Pooler Designs' new line of ink pads:
Next, I narrowed down my stamp choice to the Stampin' Up! Host set called 'Love You Lots' because the critters featured in the set are so adorable. I had great fun using colored pencils to color the hedgehogs, ladybugs, and frogs.
I used the Sweet & Sassy framelits and the Stitched Shapes framelits to create layers and add interest.
The final touch was to add a few strategically placed sequins on each card.
The cards turned out cuter than I had imagined them, and I'm already looking forward to making next year's valentines. (Let's hope that feeling lasts another year, lol.)
