Valentine's Day Card for My Hubby!
I bought the Sweethearts cartridge lately (when Michael's had their crazy $9.99 cartridge sale I was able to get Joann's to price match AND use my teacher's discount)! I absolutely loved this little monkey and knew it would be so cute on a card for my hubby for Valentine's Day! The vine, leaf, and sentiment are also on the Sweethearts cartridge. I used the Gypsy to resize the leaf to fit in the space on my card. I haven't decided if I'll stamp a sentiment or write my own. I'm thinking the inside has to have bananas though!
I used the Love Language Cuttlebug embossing folder/die set. I love how it looks like Swiss Dots but with hearts! I ran an ink pad over gently to make the hearts pop. I also used Stardust Stickles on the heart and Uniball Signo and Sakura Gelly Roll gel pens for detailing. I decided last minute that I needed to trace over the lines the Cricut cuts - it looked odd to me without it.
