DeNami Design January's Blog Hop: VALENTINE

It's the first blog hop of 2012! EEEK! I'm soooo excited! I also can't believe I'm the first stop on the hop! Talk about pressure! Yikes! Let's get right to it, shall we? If at any point you get lost or need to get back to the beginning, go to DeNami Design's blog.


While I usually love tons of layers, every once and a while, I'm in a "single layer card" mood. I think of valentines as usually being frilly and froo-froo and femininely fabulous, but I felt like simplifying things a bit today. It's still full of hearts and scallops, but it's just a few stamps, Copic markers, and one single sheet of white cardstock...oh, and of course a bit of glitter and glitter pen action to finish it off. I masked off the center rectangle before stamping the heart scallop border frame, and then I stamped the center images and sentiment.
