Shower the People You Love Valentine for RRR

Greetings, Ribbon Lovers!  Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?  Today, I’m sharing a card made with scrumptious Valentine’s ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and one of my favorite images from Graphic 45.

This 6 inch square card is lavishly adorned with themed ribbons from the January Ribbon Club Assortment.  After creating a base card from hot pink cardstock, I added a slightly smaller layer of pink polka dot paper to compliment the Hot Pink Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon.  After cutting a fishtail banner on one end, I used Scor-Tape to secure it to the base of the card.  This was topped with a length of Sally Crochet Lace.

I layered more of this pretty lace with some pretty pink heart ribbon on the left hand side of the card.  I then tied a single loop bow and secured it with hot glue.

I added lots of little pink banners to the right hand side of the image. The raining hearts were touched with a bit of Diamond Stickles, and the top of the umbrella was treated to a coat of Glossy Accents to give it that “wet” look.

The inside of the card is pretty basic…just a simple sentiment and a tiny postage stamp.  Lots of room to write a sweet love note of you are of a mind to!

I had to create a special envelope for this card because I didn’t have any 6″ square envelopes on hand.  I kept with the polka dot theme I had established on the card.

So, how do you plan to shower the people you love on Valentine’s Day?  My mom always used to make a tasty treat for us kids.  Dad always brought home a box of chocolates.  My sister and I used to make construction paper Valentines for all our family and friends.  However you choose to celebrate it, Valentine’s Day is pretty wonderful!  Thanks for stopping by today, and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.  It makes me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers every time I hear from you!

Wishing you love!

    Lovely…..colors are awesome and that little pop of stickles is perfect and I love the images you have used. Your little family inspiration is just about like mine growing up…and I tried to instill in my 2 sons the same so they will pass it on to their lovely families and remember mom !! We had heart shaped pizza @!

    Gorgeous! I just had to enlarge to get the full effect of every bit of details on your card. Love the graphic images. The lady is stunning and works well with the card right down to the raining of the little hearts.
    Who ever receives this card would be smart to put in a frame or place in small shadow box
