These adorable love birds from Inkadinkado needed something to look at, so I gave them a love knot. How fun! I stamped the birds in red on scrap vintage cream cardstock, cut them out and mounted them over the same image stamped in olive on a 4.25" square vintage cream card. This is an easy way to get a two-toned image...as long as what you're cutting out has clean lines. Tedious cutting does not take place in my craft room. No, sir-ee!
The scalloped panel is old olive and is popped up on dimensionals. (It appears I can't get away from red and green completely yet.) I made a tag to hang from the knot but decided not to use it. I have no good reason other than it looked fussy. If someone else did it, I'd think it was fabulous and squeal in delight. But from me, well, take my word for it: it just looked fussy.
It's weird posting all these Valentine's cards the week of Christmas, and I hope you don't mind. They have to get done in time to ship off to the troops so the troops have time to send them home. Tomorrow, I will try to post a review of the new Hero Arts catalog, which upon initial perusal appears to be TOTALLY AWESOME!
