Valentine card for my husband


I have made a card for my Lovely husband. We met when we were 17 and 18 years old, and have been a couple since 1983 and married ten years this year.

The card is made with only Tim Holtz products.

The background is made from Distress Oxides, and then I ran it through the "riveted metal" embossing folder. After that I used some stencils and made som more layers. I used Distress crayons on the edges. I mounted the background to a diecut card from Coredinations kraft stock and used an "I love you" stamp around the edges. 

I started to build up the layers on the card with some ephemera pieces and die cuts. (I love layers ;) ).

The "countdown brads" are treated with aged mahogany Distress crayon.

I used a stencil to "create" nr 83 on the background, as it was the year me and my husband got together. 

The two hearts with our initials are diecuts from chipboard, then grit paste through the brick stencil. Coloured with age mahogany Distress crayon.

I will try this card in the following challenges;

Thanks for visiting and have a Lovely Valentine´s day!
