Canvas Corp Brands Valentine Post!

Hello hello!! Yay! It's time to post some thing I have been working on behind the scenes. Today I can share my Valentine's day card I made for Canvas Corp!
Be sure to check out all the inspiration over at Canvas Corp Brands and PIN your favourites for your chance to win!

What do you win, you ask??? Well, nothing but a $50 gift card!! That's a pretty good chunk o' change, if I do say so myself. The challenge is to create a valentine card and send it to someone as a surprise of love for them! I'm sending mine to my husbands office so he can get a little bit of lovin' from me in the middle of his hectic day.  We usually don't do much for Valentine's, so this will be a fun surprise!

Here she is:

I used a variety of papers and die cuts to create my card. Let me show you what I did:

I created a frame with various papers and also die cut my bullseye out of the paper too so I could inlay it all together.
 I then cut the bullseye out of some chipboard three times so I would have enough pieces to create different depths.

I fussy cut a heart and also die cut some circles from different patterns and then glued them all together at different heights and inlaid them all onto my card base.

You can see a bit of the layering here. I added a double LOVE die cut to create a shadow and a gold arrow with some enamel dots to finish it off.

I fussy cut two hearts. The bottom one I left a bit of a paper edge around it and the front one was cut clean to the heart (um... not great for valentines ;) This way there was a bit of a shadow added with the dimension.

And that's it! There are so many talented ladies over at Canvas Corp Brand. I definitely have my work cut out for me! But I am excited to be apart of it all. They have so many wonderful products and lots of challenges and inspiration to be apart of. So be sure to check it all out HERE!

Thanks for joining me today!

I love your wonderful use of geometric in this design. At first, the chevron were my fave, but then I saw the stripes and the polka dots and the stitching...oh, heck, I just love everything about your design. Very nicely done, indeed!
