Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day everyone! I have another card using this months designers challenge, use a pivot. The challenge to myself was to make a masculine card for my hubby.

Here is what I came up with using the Heart Pivot Card die.

I have altered aluminum foil using my Spectrum Noir marker in IG10. I also ran it through with the Riveted Metal embossing folder. The wood is paper from ARC paper company.

On the inside I continued with the altered foil. I LOVE the wood paper. Not only can you cut it, you can emboss it and print on it as well.

Here are some of the supplies I used:

On this card I added the Oval Flourish Frame Edge to each of the inside sides. The flowers were made with the Elizabeth Craft Design Bunch of Flowers die. I also added leaves from the ECD Triple leaf die and a Martha Stewart Foliage punch. The flower centers are glitter dots from ECD which I have colored the center to coordinate with my project.
