5 for 5 Blog Event: Valentine's | Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of our 5 for 5 Blog Event.
Each day for 5 days our 5 Designers will post one Valentine's Inspired Project based on a theme. Some of us will be offering prizes - MYSELF INCLUDED - stay tuned!! The theme for today is "Arrows". I created another card today - I am fairly new to card making but I really enjoy making them! For this card I continued to use My Mind's Eye "Cupid's Arrow" papers. I used Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangle Stackables to create several layers for my card. I love the stitched look and the stackable dies are fun and easy to use! Here's a close up of the stitched look ...

And here's my card...
 

The smallest layer is backed with fun foam for dimension - a great tip I picked up from
Jennifer McGuire. Fun foam is very inexpensive and the same thickness as foam tape. It's great for a solid backing of an element or photo and is more cost effective. I still use foam tape ALOT, but this is a great supplement to make your foam tape last much longer! I punched out three hearts, one out of red glitter paper and added them to the center of the card. A simple sentiment was the perfect final touch for this card!


Thanks again for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments. Please check the designers blogs below and leave some love! I will have a fun giveaway that's Valentine's Day related. Simply leave a comment on my blog for each 5 days and I will randomly choose a winner!! Hopefully we are inspiring you to create some Valentine's projects! See you tomorrow!!
