Valentine's Day Card with Di's Digi Stamps Sweet on You Digi & LRW #693

Chrissy's up this week at Little Red Wagon and she's challenging us to  'Use Your Die Cuts'. This is a pretty easy one for me, as practically every card I make uses at least one die, but as this Valentine from last week has more than the average with five, it's perfect for this challenge. It has no-brand stitched squares, a no-brand border strip and hearts, and Gemini Fancy Borders ric-rac. 

The Sweet On You digi (retired) is from Di's Digi Stamps. Di's has been my go-to source for Valentines this year; I made two and her stamps were on both (the other one is here). Paper is digital paper leftovers from my scraps file. Well, except for the music paper which wasn't a 'leftover' so much as a 'never used'. When I printed this out long, long ago, I realized that the bass and treble clefs (the symbols at the very beginning of a musical piece) were reversed or upside down. As a pianist, that really bugged me and I couldn't bring myself to use it, but this time it went so well with the other scrap papers, I decided that with this smaller card I could cut off the clefs with the die-cut and just ignore the badly written notes (quite a few goofs there, too).

CK Round Scratch font was used to create the sentiment. Heart shaped pearls dress up the hearts.

  1. Oh Shani!! This card is so precious! Those darling little mice are the perfect pair for your Valentine's Day card.

    I wouldn't have noticed a thing with the music paper. It's worked out wonderfully well and is a fabulous fit behind the main feature!

  2. Such a sweet and loving card Shani, fabulous colouring on these cuties and love your die cuts..gorgeous card..

  3. Aw, such a sweet Valentine! Great use of die cuts,especially the smaller white background die...the stitching just adds a little added interest.

  4. Adorable! Those mice are so sweet. Loving all the different die cuts too. Good save with the music paper...something like that would bug me too. (:

  5. Love this so much! Those mice are just too cute and 5 die cuts, I have to label you an overachiever for this challenge.
