Love.

This is the card I sent The Doc for Valentines Day.
It was challenging to say the least to get the jigsaw piece to match exactly. I used an MDF heart shape to draw round and then cut in cardboard covered with the design paper which  was an unknown sheet from my stash.  Jigsaw die is by Xcut  and the ' Foryou'  sentiment by Tonic which I die cut four times and glued together for the 3D effect. The red hearts, string and the 'From Me' circle were all in my stash.
I created the  wording  and printed out ,then adhered to cardboard and die cut with the jigsaw die. I distressed the edges of the jigsaw pieces and the heart  with distress inks in red and brown to get the shading that I wanted.

Norm forgot to send Sammy a Valentine card.  Offering her a piece of his Yorkie Bar as recompense did not go down very well either! Their romance could well be on the skids!!!!!

Oh dear. I fear Norm has a lot to learn about us Women.

Hi Mrs A this is a stunning card I love the design those dies are amazing. I bet the Doc loved it. Have a great weekend. Take care. Hugs Jackie

What a super card you made for the Doc, pity Norm wasn't watching and taking note.... poor Sammy xx

Brenda in IN said...

I hope Doc loved this card. It is so clever and a great guy card. Someone needs to take Norm in hand and explain things to him. Offering the whole Yorkie Bar might have gone better.

You made a so brilliant card for your hubby, such lovely idea and design!! Love the piece with the sentiment, it's just perfect!!
Norm is able to write? (?)
... Perhaps he could write a "Sorry" note for Sammy and give it to her with a flower... :)

Hi Mrs A,
what a very superb card and such a brillant design you have created.
Love the jig zaw piece cut out of the heart.
I am gutted as I have just put a peach and purple card on my blog if only I had attached a butterfly I would have been al set for the challenge this time.
That will teach me to check the challenge first won't it.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I like this clever design. Perfect for Doc(not frou-frou)...the jigsaw pieces were a great idea to combine with the heart and the dark tones of the reds, again, great masculine look. Love that bold dimensional sentiment too. TFS &Hugs
