A Rare Cute One


I've been absent from blogland for a couple of weeks, have been busy with one thing and another and seemed to have run out of inspiration. However, I have had lots of requests for Valentines cards from the blokes at work recently, so am back crafting with a vengeance. This one fits the bill over at Tuesday Taggers where they want to see bears this week, and there is a prize from The Craft Barn.

I don't usually do cute cards as they are not really 'me', but they are very popular and I hope they will go down well at work. This one is not very elaborate as I have quite a few to make in a short space of time.
I used a Forever Friends stamp and coloured the image with water colour pencils. I cut it out using a circular nestie and matted it onto some red mirriboard. The heart backing paper is also Forever Friends and I inked it around the edges with a red inkpad. The strip across the middle is also red mirriboard and was punched with my Martha Stewart doily punch. Lastly I made some floral embellishments using punched red card and mirriboard, with gem/pearl centres.

Thank you for looking and for all your kind words.

  1. Lovely card Fiona even if it is cute lol.
    Know what you mean though as I'm not really a fan of cute but have to do them for my 2 DT spots as no arty in sight!
    Hope you're having a good weekend. I'm off to Stitches at the Brighton Centre tomorrow with my sister in law and will be catching up with Jenny Mayes from Hobby Art as she's got my stamps with her.
