Valentine For My Daughter

I made a quick Valentines card for my youngest daughter today. I worry that she feels left out as I was pretty sure her older sister would get a valentine (she came home with a red rose clutched in her hand), and my BF got me a card and some choccies and woohoo I am getting the Tim Holtz Cargo Case off him as well :) and I wanted her to have a special day too . . .

So while my BF picked her up from school and bought her a coke slushee and some chips and then took her to the park I set to creating a quick card just for her. I grabbed a Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Eyelet Heart die and a Nesting Heart die and cut me some hearts :) I measured the largest heart I used and cut a square card slightly bigger than the die from hot pink cs (her fave colour).

I used some Hero Arts white embossing powder with some stamps from The Paper Studio then grabbed some I am Roses flowers. I coloured the edges of the flowers with Picked Raspberry Distress Stain and then spritzed with my home made mist (about halfway down for a how to). I used the stain on the tips of the flowers again to make them darker. Not happy the colours don't match to well but was rushing before she arrived home lol (not like she notices these things :)).

How awesome is this pic? I just discovered the super macro feature on my camera lol. The hearts are double sided taped together and then I used foam tape to adhere them for some dimension. The flowers are adhered with glossy accents :)

Then I used my ecraft to cut a whole heap of red hearts in different sizes. I stuck them all around the room including decorating the television. LM noticed them as soon as she walked in the room and thought they were brilliant :), she has appropriated them for her own room now lol.

Her little face when I gave her the card was overjoyed :). So worthwhile knocking up a quick card to see that look plus I got a great big hug! Doesn't get better than that :) Just goes to show that Valentines Day can be for everyone no matter how big or small :)
Happy Scrappin'
