Happy Valentine's Day

My other half and I don't usually bother these days but I happened to walk past him a couple of days ago and he dropped something on the floor, scuffled about and said "ooh - you're not meant to see that." - he has never been great on surprises lol.  Consequently I thought I had better make him something as he'd actually bothered to get me a card.....


I saw this recessed card template on another blog here.  I like the way it adds depth to your card, it's not difficult to make and could have lots of different applications.

Bless him, did he do it on purpose do you think so you'd make him a card? I didn't make my hubby's this year, saw a handmade one I really liked so... Enjoy your evening xx

Not done one of these in a long time. Love how you did yours and that heart in the centre is something special. Great idea to cover it with those swirly branches and echo the swirls in the frame part.
Hugs, Neet xx
