Love is in the Air for The Paper Players

I'm still in the throes of computer crash blues! I have my new computer, but the worst is finding your old favourite software is no longer available and/or compatible with your new OS etc. Then you have to find new apps and the learning curve can be time consuming to learn the ins and outs of them. I'm desperately trying to get my February newsletter out and it's almost ready. So with that in mind, this is another quick post. I wanted to play along with The Paper Players' Theme Challenge this week: 

It's obviously a Valentine challenge and since there's a wood-grain background on the challenge banner, I naturally thought of doing another masculine valentine card. That and I needed one for my Mom & Me class on Saturday for the moms to make. So here's my design:

  • I used the Pressed Petals specialty designer series paper for the wood background for my design. It has a nice dark grain to it.
  • On the Very Vanilla panel, I stamped the long texture stamp from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set, in Crumb Cake.
  • The large hearts were punched from Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler with the Heart Punch from the Heart Punch Pack in the Mini Catalogue. The little hearts were from retired die sets, but the Stitched Be Mine die set would have something similar, I just don't have it.
  • I ran the two Crumb Cake hearts through the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder for the texture. The sentiment is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set as well.
  • I tied a loose bow with linen thread as an embellishment.
