Hey there! So I realize the title of this blog, "Blue Valentine" is actually a movie starring Ryan Gosling, which looked incredibly good, but incredibly sad, so I never saw it. Maybe I'll give it a shot eventually. After all, it IS a Ryan Gosling movie. :)
Anyhoo, this post is about a card, not a dreamy actor. I made this for the "Winter Blues" section of the January/February issue of Paper Crafts magazine. It didn't get picked up, but I had so much fun with this challenge. I get so sick of the traditional red/pink/white color scheme of Valentines that blue was a welcome change.
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper
Patterned paper: BasicGrey
Clear stamps: Layers of Color, Making Memories
Scalloped die cut: Spellbinders
Edge punch: Fiskars
It's hard to tell from this photo, but I heat embossed a script stamp from "The Love Chapter" from Layers of Color in clear embossing powder. I like the subtle addition of textures it gives the card.
I hope you have a great weekend and thank you so much for stopping by! Maybe you'll watch a Ryan Gosling movie this weekend - because I'm pretty sure I talked myself into it. :)
