Oval Frame Valentine Card

Hi there - Today's card has two looks to it - a simple, shabby version and then a fancier version with more details on it.  I called them Valentine's cards but really they could be used any time.


I used Pool Party as the base for both cards and Everyday Enchantment DSP for the oval frames.  I just reversed the frames and centers.  The butterflies are from the little butterfly embosslit.  And the brads and ribbon are part of the Sale-a-bration goodies....free!  Who doesn't love free stuff!  I hand cut the notches out of the end of the pennants because I wanted them to be a little off center.  They are glue-dotted to the hemp twine.  Both were sponged with Soft Suede around the edges.  For the second card, I stepped up the details a bit.  I embossed the card base with the dots folder.  I added 2 scrunched flowers, changed 2 of the pennants to DSP, added ribbon bows and curled the ends of the hemp.  (Easy to do:  just get the hemp damp and wrap it around your paper piercer until it is dry!)


I think I'll be making more of these using the other patterns of DSP in the Everyday Enchantment pack!  Hope you like them!
