Happy Valentine's Day!

I love Valentine's Day. It's one of my favorite holidays of the year. So fun and festive. Not a lot of work, though, which is nice. I am going to make our annual special dinner. Ryan, Fran and I are having filet mignon, crab cakes and chocolate fondue (for dessert).

Here are some Valentines that I made recently using Crate Paper's DIY Shop line. Crate has some gorgeous Valentine's lines, but I wanted to make something with a different color palette. There are several gold embellishments with the line, so I decided to use gold and cream as my predominant colors.

  I spritzed the background with gold mist and added a gold doily on this one.

Here, I layered some die cuts and added that fun clothespin.


 I love the gold chevron tag! I added a gold flower die cut and some Thickers to round out this one.

It's fun to find other lines that work so well for different holidays!As a matter of fact, that gold flower does resemble a poinsettia. Maybe I could use it for a Christmas card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy Valentine's Day!

192.168.1.254 is a private IP address that comes in a range booked from IANA(Internet Assigned Number Authority) for specific purposes, though in many cases users mistype the IP address as 192.168.l.254 where the character one is assumed as letter L. When you buy a modem or router, you get credentials to log in to the router that allows you to make changes to your router. A private IP ensures there are no conflicts and no-one else can log in to your network.

Annabelle, it seems like you had a very delicious dinner, indeed! Excellent card themes indeed, Loved the "me + you - family" one most, with the clothespin! The bingo one looks a lot of craft. The gold mist and doily was a nice touch. I recently came across this Top IAS coaching in Chennai. They have really beautiful themes on their page too, do check it out.

Just saw your post and I thought what a lovely card. I can make use of this idea to make a wedding card for my friend. She has been nagging me for an idea since her betrothal.
