A Little Valentine

012a

 

I thought I would make a gate fold card for a change forgetting how difficult it would be to photograph, doh!!!!, but I have had a go anyway.  I have always been a bit of a pastel girl and felt really uncomfortable  when I have tried to use brighter colours, but thats the good thing about blogging you see other bloggers wonderful creations and want to do something like it.   So Here is another “Brighter”  card.

 

017

The inspiration for the colours on this one is the my gorgeous new papers from Nitwits collection “From The Heart” lovely Blue and Red papers.  The stamp is of course from Lili of the Valley called “Love is in the Little Things” sentiment is also include on the stamp plate.  I have used some moe of my new Go-Kreate Dies to cut out the image I am loving the shapes of their dies.

 

016 

 

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the lovely lace is from The Ribbon Girl, I have again used the Mariannes dies Swirl I can always find a space for this on my card :)

 

014

I have decorated the inside to compliment the front and used two cuts punched with a Martha Stewart Heart Punch.

 

013 018

 

The Copics used:

Flesh: E21, E00, E0000, Shirt and Cardigan B95, B93, B91, Flowers, Skirt and Shoes R39, R37, R35, Hair & Hat E53, E51, E50./

 

This card will soon be available for sale on my e-bay site

Oh Jacqui, the blues and reds together are fantastic, glad you stepped out of your comfort zone because you nailed it.

I know what you mean about the gate fold card,I just did one myself and was having a difficult time photographing it, But now that I saw how you photographed yours, I'll give it another whirl..
