A Sophisticated And Stylish Love Card

Sophisticated Love Card with Flowers

Happy WOYWW To You!

This Valentine’s Day, I celebrate 17 years of marriage with the man I love.

As I count down the moments to this special day, I am covertly creating tokens of romance and love…

One of my favorite creations this week was this beautiful love card, which I created with my husband in mind.

Love Card
I wanted to design a card that was sophisticated and elegant in its presentation – qualities my husband appreciates – so, I chose the stylish yet neutral color palette of Red, Kraft and Black plus White to convey that message (Top Tip Tuesday).

I also added some of my favorite Close To My Heart products into the mix for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge – Love the CTMH Way, along with a few additional embellishments specifically chosen for the rich texture they provide.

Here are a few of the products I used:

  • CTMH Much Love Stamp – which I also used in my Much Love Card!
  • CTMH Ink Pads, Floral Ribbon, Mini Brads
  • Maya Road Felt Flowers
  • K & Company Life’s Journey Stitched Ribbon

      It’s so nice to meet another crafter who has the same taste in stamps and ribbons as I do! 🙂
      Based on where you are visiting from – looks like we have stash hoarding in common too!

      Have a wonderful week and thanks for the smile!
