A Romantic Valentine with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday to you!  It's my day to share a project over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

I have a soft romantic card with flourishes in pink, brown and green tones to share with you today. This week's challenge is to add a flourish and I thought I would make a Valentine's style card to meet the challenge criteria.


I started with the largest Card Maker Scalloped Rectangle die, then cut a layer in the brown quatrefoil pattern from the Card Maker Rectangle dies.  I thought some pretty border cuts would look nice and soft behind these layers, so I adhered from behind.  

Each of these layers is attached with foam squares to give a little dimension and interest.


After adding the Oval Boutique Stacker, I knew I wanted to use the Lattice Heart and Vines on this card. The soft green vining behind it is the Celtic Heart.  

I cut two Lattice Heart and Vines, one in a darker pattern that I trimmed the heart border from and and adhered to my first cut to help frame it. I backed the heart with some darker pink patterned paper to emphasize the lattice. 


Diamond Stickles were added to the center of my Cuties 2 flower and the lighter colored vines outside of the heart and my Mini Butterfly. A bit of lightweight florist wire and a quilling tool were used to create my butterfly antennae. I used a glassine bag and cut a Tiny Fanciful Flourish and you'll see it spraying out from my butterfly faintly.
