Valentine - Cottage Cutz Cupid

Good Morning. How did it get to be Monday already? Did we really have a went by way too fast.

Here's another very simple Valentine card to share. No sprays, stamping or coloring on this one.

- Cottage Cutz Cupid from plain red paper (snippet). Added a bit of DI Barn red smudging, and a small rhinestone. Mounted on dimensional foam.

- Negative diecut is from S/B Scalloped heart, then embossed with a Cuttlebug EF basket weave pattern. Adhered as a panel over a white cardbase  (navy paper is just for photo background). Should have elevated panel for more impact. Didn't think of it until too late!

- black textured Bazzill under the negative space

- Cheery Lynn script sentiment using red velvet snippet as was the tiny heart  - from this card. The heart was one of the bits left from the MB heart border. Shame to waste it!

Thanks for visiting, and come again soon. Hope your weather is not terribly dreadful, and that you have something pleasant planned today. Hugs.

    Are you expecting cold weather? We are but no snow. I can't believe it - it is either too warm to snow or too cold. Bah Humbug!

  14. I love this. The red cupid stands on it's own. That's what you think of on Valentines Day. It is extremely cold here with howling winds again. Snow blowing all around. So ready for spring.

  15. Cute card :) Congrats Mary, looking forward to designing with the whole group

  16. Fabulous design Mary - love your collection of die-cuts! Loll xx

  17. What a fun die! I need to remember and use dies more often, although most of mine are like circles and squares and not fun things. Great card and I'm happy to hear you say you realized what you should have done different in the end. I do that all the time, so it is nice to know I'm in good company!

  18. Love this. I need to use my dies more.
