Title: It's July. It's NOT Valentine's Day!
Post by: jnLL on July 08, 2007 08:55:49 PM
I know, I'm sorry :(

I made this card for my young gentleman to celebrate 2.5 years. Woo? Frankly, I think it's way too red and pink...it just screams V-day. For some reason I can't seem to disassociate love from those colors. Oh well, anyway... pictures!

I drew the picture, but I can't take credit for the pose because I did use a reference. The pink and red shirts the couple is wearing is construction paper I cut out and glued :D


The photo (sorry for the trite kissy picture) is removable and the deep red paper it's set against is a sheet of scrapbook paper with I-love-you in different languages. The Be Mine and Striped heart cutouts are actually cards from a $1 valentine-themed deck from Target. I made the puzzle pieces...we always say that we fit perfectly together like puzzle pieces.


The card is slightly interactive! Look~Remove the photo and open the Be Mine card aaaand...

I took a joker card and painted out the R of "Joker" and made that lame phrase...sigh...I embarass myself. Haha...and I included the Jack and Ace (of hearts!) cards because A and J are our initials.


Some additional info (in case you were curious):
The striped heart in the bottom right corner is actually a little pocket where later I'll slip a love note and this coupon:


I'm really proud of this card! I'm going to be sad to relinquish it  ;)

You put a lot of work into that card!  It looks really great.  Maybe someday the card will get slipped into your wedding album ;) JK!
