Love You Much Card

I'm totally into Valentine's Day mode now!  I love Christmas, it's definitely my favorite holiday.  But, I have to say I'm kinda glad to move on to making other projects.  I think I started Christmas in early October, so it's a nice change to work on something else.

I saw this card/envelope combo on someone's blog month's ago, but cannot remember who.  It's probably been around a lot.  But, it's definitely not my original idea.  This is a 4 X 4 1/4" card with an envelope and topper.  I used some non-traditional Valentine's colors - Bordering Blue and Pale Plum and added a little bling with Dazzling Diamonds.  I didn't have any matching ribbon (gasp!) for the envelope, so I dyed some Whisper White Taffeta using an ink refill and a little water.

Supplies:
Cardstock:  Bordering Blue, Pale Plum, Whisper White
Stamp Set:  Love You Much
Ink:  Bordering Blue, Pale Plum
Other:  Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon (dyed Pale Plum), Paper Crimper, Dazzling Diamonds, two-way glue pen, mini glue dots.

You did an outstanding job and I love the colors you chose, so soft and delicate and the stamp set is one of my favorite SU sets. Isn't it funny how some designs stick in our minds.
