All my love hearts

There's something rather lovely about hearts, red roses and valentines that makes you go all mushy isn't there... and this year, I managed to combine all three of those things to create a couple of little cards for this special day. I didn't give the blue one to anyone, as I was just playing about with the Tonic dies really, but the red one was handed over to the Hubby. First Valentines card for a few years lol. 

I opted to keep the layout of the cards quite simple really, just choosing my colours and using white as my layers in between. I think they're really eye catching. 

This is the close up of the red card I did, and you can see all the beautiful detail in the Tonic die cut. Just amazing! I have a little collection of these beauties after spending time working with them the other week over at Manchester, and I just love them. I love the way they all link together, and work with one another. I love the way they cut, and the way the designs are simply delightful. 

Here are the two cards I made, and you can see just by changing the colours and adding depth and layer to the cards how you can make them pop. The blue one has a little addition to it that i added the other day, so I will show you that tomorrow. 

But here you can see the whole card. This is the same layout that I have used for both, same dies, different colours. 

Tomorrow I have the pleasure of working with my long awaited Docrafts kit.... and it is beautiful. I took it all out of the box, put it all back in and sat and admired it. I know that isn't what you are supposed to do with the items, but they're just toooooo nice to use!!

I have some stamping and colouring to do tomorrow, and then its on to the other bits of the kits to put them all together. i hope you check back on my progress later in the week... it would be lovely to have you pop by. 

Until then.... Happy Crafting!
