Well today is the first day I’m up with the Festive Friday Challenge which has been started by the lovely Nicole Derendorf.
Each Friday the design team will share a Festive card for the challenge to inspire you into creating card for Christmas and all those Festive occasions that happen during the year and this week it is Valentine’s Day!
Now remember the other day I said I’d have more from Easy Events??Â Here is my card for today’s Festive Friday Challenge …
It’s amazing what you can do with just one of those little stamps!!
As soon as Nicole asked for Valentine’s well I knew what stamp I wanted to use – I love that little tree!
Now you know how all crafters say there is no such thing as a mistake and its just a creative licence?Â well see my little banner? thats one of those ‘creative licences’!Â I had stamped the image crooked and after all that spongeing I just about cried! So I just redid the greeting on a scrap of paper (this way it doesnt matter if it’s crooked cos I can cut it out and make it straight!) and turned it into a banner and used glue dots to position it to not only cover my mistake but to also give it the wavy/wind blown look 🙂
Now I wanted to make this card a little special so I can use it for Valentine’s Day for hubby and came across an idea online and once I saw it I thought yes this lady will have a template … but no – her sight was in some foreign language I’d never seen before so I just made my own using Microsoft Word and here’s the inside ….
Cute hey??Â Took a bit of fiddling but finally worked it all out and I must say I do like this card!
