Un-Traditional Valentine's Card

Hi again!

I created 3 projects for the Quick Quotes Design Team Application that is due on 1/15/11. I hope some of you are applying too. They are such a great company to work for!

Now that I have sent in my application, I want to share with you the projects I made.

The first thing I made was a Valentine's Card for my boyfriend. Since he is a guy, of course he isn't all into pink and hearts and girly things. When I was at the Mini Meet in Toledo last November, I saw this embellishment sheet from My Mind's Eye > Lost and Found 2 > Breeze > Dream and I thought this would make a cute card for him. Since the main colors are boyish colors it worked perfectly. So then I also bought the 6x6 coordinating paper pack. Here is what I came up with

 I loved the papers so much I made a large square card instead of the traditional A2. I inked everything in QQ Blue Hawaiian. I used my Tim Holtz Stamp set Artful Things to add writing to the lined paper and the heart. I know I said my boyfriend wasn't all into pink and hearts but I couldn't do a Valentine's card without a heart on it!! Then I added some stickles to the heart and one of the banners (also from My Mind's Eye)

Here is the inside of the card. This saying is a corner of one of the papers from the pack. Again I inked everything in QQ Blue Hawaiian. I added a border stamp from CTMH That is actually from a Halloween stamp set. And I still have room to write a personal note below.

Come back tomorrow to see the crafty index I made for myself. You can see the one I made for my mom here.

I am also entering this in The Paper Players Challenge: All You Need is Love
