Valentines Day 25 years on

I am still in shock that it is 25 years since I sent Ian a Valentines Day card. Due to the post he did not receive it until 15.02.1989. It took a further 8 weeks to get the message that I thought he was gorgeous!!!!

I wanted to make some a bit special and something different.

I took a  7 x 5 card blank and inked and embossed hearts around the edges as I did not want any white to show. I sprayed water onto brown paper and scrunched it. The background of the tag is made by using Sir Tim's distress stains and his fab new heart stencil. It is lush. The hearts were also heat embossed to give them a bit of a shine. Once the paper was dry I faffed around with distress inks and 'stuff'.  I painted a black mdf heart and embossed with black utee. The ribbon was coloured with distress ink. The 25 was a bingo number coloured with ink.

The card was put together using my famous heat gun.

Ian thought the card was 'pretty darn good'!!!!

Lots of love Bev xx
