A Valentine Tree
I love Winter Frolic so much, I had to use this adorable tree. I'm definitely Christmas-carded out, so I used pink and white to create a Valentine themed tree. I think it turned out pretty non-Christmasy and I'm pleased. This card is also for The Paper Variety challenge: create a project with pink, black and/or white. I chose pink and white and added purple as a third color. Sadly, the purple is Stampin' Up! Almost Amethyst and it is retired. I only have about 10 sheets left. Ack! The glitter paper is from AC Moore and it's fantastic. It's a light-weight chipboard and they didn't skimp on glitter. I used adhesive pearls to decorate the tree, some button twine to wrap the trunk. The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Sending Love. It's retired also, but it's available for clearance here. It's awesome; every page is glittered. The hearts were cut with my other new favorite cartridge, Twinkle Toes. I used some felt flowers and gems to add some texture.
Here's a close up of the heart and flower detail:
The sentiments on the heart are once again from Papertrey Ink's Heart Prints set. I'm sure getting a lot of use from that set. I used a paper crimper to add some texture to the paper and topped it off with satin ribbon from papertrey Ink in Raspberry Fizz.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
