Be my Valentine

Wow, time flies and it's time for another card for the Rubber Buggy:)

I made a little different card this week and have not used a stamp.
But it so easy to put beautiful things together with paper from Graphic 45. Here I made a 4.5 x 4.5 card for Valentine using the Place in Time cut-apart paper of Feburary. Apart from a flatback pearl, 4 paper flowers, some Recollection bling and 4 stickers from the Place in Time sticker sheet, all the embellishment is from the paper line.

The base of the card is Neenah Environment smooth desert storm - is this the same as kraft paper? I then matted cream card stock on top of black card stock - and then... Then the fun begins:)

I matted the cut picture from the paper with pearl shimmer paper, the rest is just cut-aparts from the paper - both the tag and the stamps. I glued a pink flat back pearl to the tag and coloured some I am roses rose buds and a R2-15 rose with Rudolph nose red from Lindy's stamp gang.

Again both the stamp and border is from the cut-apart sheet from Graphic 45. Some Recollection bling from a roll, but it would be just as fine without it!

Even the inside is from the collection. The striped paper, stamp, the tag and the border that's not shown is from the cut-apart sheet. From the sticker sheet is the "14", "be my Valentine" and the little heart after "BE MINE". Again, if you do not have the sticker sheet there are plenty more to choose from on the cut apart papper.

Is it not amazing what you can do with paper - LOL!
