JAI55 - Just Add Love!

With Valentines Day only a few sleeps away, it's the perfect time for a challenge all about Love, don't you think? And that's what the girls at Just Add Ink have in store for you this week so be sure to head on over and see what the rest of the design team have come up with.

And here is my entry for this week. I started with the card and kept it very 'no frills' since my hubby doesn't like real girly cards as he calls them! lol There is a little bit of sparkle though, on the red 'Love You'. After stamping I just went over it in Versamark, sprinkled it with a mix of Heat & Stick powder and dazzling diamonds and then set it with my trusty heat tool.

Then I thought that maybe the card was a bit 'plain' so I made a little matching gift box using a template by Lauren Meader which I will fill with chocolates. I also tried to keep that looking as un-girly as I could as well ;)
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red and Naturals Ivory
Stamps: Papertrey Ink, and Valentines sentiment by SU!
Ink: Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red
Other: Early espresso satin ribbon, PTI die, buttons, string, dazzling diamonds

This is just perfect Jodene. I love the card (have been toying the getting that sentiment set for a while now) as well as the gift box. I'm very jelous that you are using your new Papertrey stuff. My order from early Jan is still not here (but at least it's in the country now :()

Sorry for being so slack in the commenting department - I've been keeping up though!
