I am so lucky to be Guest Designing for Digi Doodle Studios. Valentine's Day is in a week! Are you ready? Did you make that special someone a card? I'm living the single life so instead of making a card for a significant other I made one for MYSELF! HA! I colored this darling image to look like me in my favorite colors! And I put her on my mantle. Happy Valentine's Day to me. Her name is Seraphina and I'm totally jealous of her amazing hair and cute outfit! Cut It Up is currently having a challenge "Inspired By A Love Song" so I was inspired by Christina Aguilera's Song " Beautiful" because Valentine's Day doesn't need to me just about loving a significant other but LOVE YOURSELF!
I started by making a soft red background with Distress Oxide Ink Candy Apple, then I took my Newton's Nook Heart Stencil and made a deeper red on top to create the heart background. I die cut the scallop heart in red and white paper, trimmed the scallop off the white paper and inked the edges and placed it off the side of the card and trimmed the access. I used foam tape to make sure Seraphina popped from the background in all her beauty. My sentiment is a reminder to myself and to all the ladies in the world "YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL"
Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is the best surprise you got from someone for Valentine's Day?
A: Me? An ex boyfriend of mine got me an electric blanket because he knew how cold I got at night and he put it on my bed with rose petals and a card
