With bundles of love


The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Vaentine.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Here’s the adorable Benson Bear ‘Bundle of Hearts’ by Crafty Sentiments Designs  all coloured up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers and a few white gel pen highlights.I decided to make a kind of shaped tent fold card by only die cutting up to the fold then embossing the rest using some stitch effect dies to tie in with the image.Love the red,white and kraft combination so chose some hounds tooth patterned paper and die cut a curvy edge for interest,matting onto some red card cut with a coordinating edge.The sentiment is stamped directly onto the base.The ribbon is salvaged from last year’s Christmas cake and I really can’t take credit for the bow – it was already there ;)Went for a more masculine feel as this will be my DH’s Valentine’s card.It’s OK he never looks at my blog.He’s not interested in bits of paper and card!

Here’s a closer view of the image :
