Evening all,

Just thought I'd stop by and share hubby's valentine's card with you all...

It's a simple design, but effective, I think. I first die-cut a heart from thick card. I then chose a few different ribbons, and glued those to the card, then trimmed them to fit the heart shape.
I then mounted it on a square of white card with foam pads for depth, which I matted on red miri board before sticking to the base card.
A simple sentiment in the corner finishes it off.

Sweet and simple, and oh so easy to make (because, frankly, as hubby will only glance at it once then chuck it somewhere on a pile of **** on his desk never to be seen again, I'm not expending huge amounts of time and effort on it! lol).

This technique can also very easily be done with strips of coordinating papers. I've just made another 10 doing just that... Need to use up scraps somehow! I'll drop them off at the charity shop tomorrow, which is where a lot of my cards end up!

And I'd like to enter this card into the Ribbon Girl challenge this week, where the theme is "hearts".
And also the Crafty ribbons challenge, where the theme is "Anything goes with ribbon".

Sweet dreams everyone.

Sammy let me know if he is still standing after he gets this one. If he is you should at least get a major-mondo hug! A heart that big should get his attention. Mine are all displayed above my desk. When she "Borrows" one I notice.

Hi Sammy; I think you must have a very good pair of scissors to trim the ribbons so precisely! Anyway your card is truly great; I love this kind of using ribbons! Thanks for participating in Crafty Ribbons Challenges this week and welcome back for a new challenge on Thursday!
