Mini Valentine

February 1, 2011

Are you ready for a Penny Black Challenge?! Today then every Monday moving forward, Penny Black will host a card challenge. You’ll never know what you’ll be challenged to create — it may be using a color mix, card sketch, theme related, etc. We’ll be offering a Penny Black prize to every challenge winner! You’ll have a week to finish your card and upload it to our Gallery. The previous week’s winner will be announced every Tuesday.  Good luck!

Moving on to today’s project, a mini file folder Valentine… I cut the file folder using my Cricut machine. I used Penny Black’s slapstick cling stamp, “Purr-fect Message“, colored it with copics and trimmed. I added the beads onto waxed linen thread and tied them onto the card fold. The floating hearts are from “Mimi and Miles”. Can you feel the love? 🙂

    Have done my project already and uploaded into PB Circle, hope I’ve got the tag done the right way. Sure want to be in the running for some new stamps. A girl can never have to many Penny Black stamps!

    Thanks for the great sketch, loved it

    I haven’t used vellum before, but your cards have inspired me to try.
    Thanks for more great ideas.

    Kathy, I love the use of the vellum and parchment paper. Great Techniques. Wonderful.
