I loved making this card it was sooo much fun. The image was from create and craft as was the idea(Michelle Marsden i think)
The card was for my hubbys mums husband

who loves his garden and lives in a lovely little village

he was really pleased with it

And so was I.

Hubbys valentines card

This is the card that i made my hubs for valentines day, not sure what this style is called but i have heard it refered to as a stubby diamond, this was my first attempt at this style. I measured and folded the card first and then i made my background using two rubber stamps that i had, i masked of the top bit of the bottom layer to stamp it ad then when it was finished i used a black border peel off to define the two areas. I then made another much smaller card to sit on the diamond part and using a penny black stamp, i embossed the image and (very rubbishly) coloured it

Never was i so suprised to receive a handmade card, this is my hubbys very first attemp at cardmaking and though he still has some way to go i love it. (i know the real reason he made it was because he forgot it was valentines day and he sneekily made it the night before)
