A Purple Valentine Card


I started with a 6x11 Neenah Card stock, scored it with the Martha Stewart Scoring Board. A piece of DT from the Lilac Paper Pad shown below was added on top of the cream card stock.

The smaller heart from Tattered Angel Stamp set (shown below) was stamped twice, first using a SU green and then Plum. It was cut out using Honey Bee Scissors and then colored with Copic markers. Two holes were punch for threading the purple silk ribbon through and then I tied a knot.

The Pansy Edger Punch was used to make the border (it looks a lot darker than it really is)
and then I punched a single layer of pansies out of a coordinating striped paper for added interest. The two top corners were punched with the Corner Pansy punch and a darker purple paper was inserted behind it so the pansies stand out. Everything was popped up with the Therm-O-Web Dimensionals.
