I Love Ewe

Good morning. Welcome to Tuesday. I don't know about you but this is my least favourite day of the week. Monday, you still have the euphoria from the weekend. Wednesday, is all down hill to the weekend. That leaves Tuesday with nothing to recommend it!

Anyway, on to more important things. I don't believe this, my second "cute" card for this week. Not only that but it is made from the free papers etc from this month's "Simply Cards and Papercrafts magazine". I just fell  in love with these "In the Meadow" collection papers.

As I have already made quite a few more traditional Valentine type cards, it made a change to do something more light hearted.

This is card to be entered into 3 challenges: Sentimental Sunday #41 - Happy Valentine's Day, Craftycardmakers #39 - Hearts and
Critter challenge #51 - Include a Critter (Animal).

This is a very simple card. The two different colors of background paper were matted onto white card to stiffen them up. A plain cream webbing was used to cover the join. This was far more "rustic" than ribbon would have been. This was matted onto silver mirror card which was, in turn, layered onto the A5 base card blank made from double sided cream pearl card for a bit of luxury.

The heart frames were cut with both scalloped and plain hearts Nesties. The hearts from the centres were used under the sentiment. Stuck behind the frames were hearts which are a slightly different colour variation (but with the same pattern) as the background papers.

Two trees and two sheep were cut out. The second sheep was cut down to use the head to decoupage onto the other one with foam pads.

Everything was positioned onto the card and a few heart shaped flat backed gems were added to the hearts and the sentiment for some bling and a large bow, made from the same webbing was added as a final flourish.
