Love you with all my heart

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

Have you taken all your Christmas decorations down yet? I am still working on it. I did get all 3 trees taken down and put away. I am now working on all the decorations in the rooms on my first floor. Its over half done and tomorrow I have the entire day to finish up. 

Then it will be on to Valentine's Day. I don't do a lot, but I have a few to put up. They will stay up until I move to my Spring decorations in March. 

Now onto my card for today. I have moved to Valentine card making.  Today, I am using the new Winter Cat & Bird Sledding and the Winter Ski Trip dies to create a scenic mountain lake with pine trees and sledding slopes.

I like to make non-traditional cards for this holiday, and I thought this image would work great as a love style card. I am not sure who I will give this card to as yet. Maybe my hubby or our precious little granddaughter. So, let's get started with some details of how I created this card.

 Design Steps:

I started off my card by cutting the images. I cut the cat & bird in bright colors. For the cat I used somewhat masculine colors and the little bird in more feminine colors.
The mountains are cut in a dark gray cardstock and also a very pale blue for the snow caps. The pine trees are cut with the Mountains & Trees Slimline die. I cut the pine trees in a dark green cardstock.
For the sledding slopes, I used the Hills Slimline die.
Next, I stamped my sentiment. I masked off the words I didn't want to use. I used my MISTI since this is a photopolymer stamp and sometimes, they don't stamp well with just one inking. I had to double stamp this one.
Now that my elements are prepared, I am ready to start card assembly. I used a white card base and for the sky background I used designer paper. I didn't need a full background for the designer paper since the slopes would cover it.

White Card Base: 4 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper Layer: 3 1/8" x 4 1/2"
I attached the sledding slopes and the designer paper with double sided tape.
Next, I attached the pine trees and the mountains. I positioned the mountains to give the appearance of a mountain lake. It reminded me of Lake Tahoe.
The images are attached with dimensional adhesive. This little pair is so cute, and I love how they look placed in the mountain scene.
To finish off my card, I added my Love phrase. It's cut from cardstock using the Love Shadow die. I added a couple of enamel hearts, and this card is finished.
Well, that's it for me for this post so until next time.......God bless.
