Happy Birthday, Hun!

Hi everyone! The weather is very beautiful here today so I want to take a moment to share the card I made for my husband's birthday. I used a fun digital image from Meljen's Design that I colored with my copic markers.

Inside the card, I folded a piece of cream cardstock and positioned the fold of the paper below the top cutting edge of the die cut so as to leave part of the fold uncut. That way it opens up like a page. I cut another piece of cream cardstock (with the same size die cut) and printed the sentiment on that one. Afterwards, I glued it over the previous folded double page making it possible for me to write my own loving words to him hidden right under the sentiment. He was surprised when he thought I forgot to sign it and I told him: "Look under it", he he! I hope you like it. Have a nice week!

Tender Loving Couple

February, the month when we celebrate love and friendship. We see pink and red all around us: at stores, pharmacies, and even supermarkets. And ohh, the lovely flowers!!! But wait, there's more: chocolates, chocolates, chocolates everywhere. Like we didn't have enough with all the beautiful sweets during the holidays, right? Oh, well. You only live once until Easter gets here, right? He he, I guess I'm in a sweet kind of mood and got distracted by sugar. On to my project.
  
This card was requested by a co-worker for his wife. The design was a collaboration of my ideas, but I brought the materials and provided him with the options in the final product. He got very involved and enjoyed it, and his wife absolutely loves the card!
