You & Me Ampersand Valentine/Love Card


 I love Valentine’s for many reasons! I enjoy celebrating & recognizing the people I love and giving unexpected tokens of love & appreciation. Valentine’s Day, for me, is also the gateway to springtime. New love is sprouting, and soon new plants and life will be springing up all around. And speaking of “new love,” my precious cousin, Kyle, is will be celebrating his first Valentine’s with his love this year. J Kyle is 16, and asked me to help him create the perfect Valentine. {Insert heart melt here}. Of course I agreed to help, so this weekend while my mom & I were visiting, I put together this sweet little gem.
 


We agreed that gold was a must, of course with the gold trend & all, and that we loved the “You & Me” stamp from the Perfect Pennants stamp set. I had no inspiration for this card, other than love itself, and I am so pleased without it came together. It started out in a Portrait orientation, but I quickly switched it around so as the flags wouldn’t cover up the ampersand. I knew I had to use the Gold Sequin Trim, so I attached it to a piece of Real Red Cardstock (stamped with the arrow from the Love You More set) using Sticky Strip.


On the inside, I tied in the Pistachio Pudding from the front by stamping the love bird from the Love You More set lightly in Pistachio Pudding. Then, I stamped the You & Me stamp in Black Stazon. On the front & inside, I added a little more bling with extra sequins from the trim.

Don't forget Sale-A-Bration is in full force! For every $50 you spend, you receive an exclusive Sale-A-Bration gift! You can shop my store online 24/7!
I hope you enjoy today’s card, and have a wonderful Valentine’s weekend!
