Be My Valentine.

My Card for The Doc.
I have used a simple centre step card which I cut using my Fiskars table top trimmer. It made it very easy to cut the slits in the correct places. You can purchase a template from
here.  Once purchased it is very easy to adapt the size to your own requirements which is what I have done for this card.
Backing paper was a freebie in Simply Cards and  Papercraft courtesy of Fluff and the die cuts were snippets courtesy of Miss Di.
Sentiments have been made using Kanban clear stamps and stitching done by hand. You can't quite see them all but there are 4 butterflies ranging down in size on both outside panels. Just about seen in the close up below.

  1. I am loving all the hearts and butterflies. The stitching looks great too. Sweet Cheeks banged his head at school today. It took them ten minutes to round him up to put a cold compress on it. Clearly he wasn't bothered! xx
