Floral Lace Heart Valentine card

Happy New Year to you.  I have been having a break from doing my blog and Youtube channel over the Christmas New Year time.  Well I say a break, I may have had a break from doing the posts, but I worked all the way through, except having 2 days off for each Christmas and New Year weekends, plus I have been doing quite a bit of crafting, just a different kind of crafting instead of cards.  My husband and I do quite a bit of vintage upcycling of furniture and thrift shop finds, so I was doing some of that, plus I stripped the wallpaper off my laundry, ready to redecorate, so I wasn't exactly sitting around for any of it, but I am glad to be back to doing cards, blogs and videos, and hopefully the break from that has made me refreshed with ideas for some new cards.

I am starting off with a clean and simple card for Valentines.

I purchased this Impression Obsession Design Die, as I thought it should be quite versatile, but for this card I have kept in simple with a blended background.  This was done with the colours picked raspberry, wilted violet and salty ocean distress inks, but because I was doing it on regular white card, I didn't get a perfect blend, but it was alright as you wouldn't see much behind the die cut anyway.  

I glued the negative space and the die cut onto the blended background, stamped a sentiment, and put a sprinkle of Pretty Pink posh clear sparkling sequins and that was the card.  

I have the video of making the card here
