Shaped Valentine Card....always!

During the New Year my printer suddenly stopped working and as with most things today you just can't get things fixed in this throw away society. What a disaster, I had spent out lots on the kids presents at Christmas and it looked like a while before I would get a new printer!

Well, last Friday I had just arrived back from work and a City Link delivery man knocked on the door....."I have a delivery for you madam". I wasn't expecting anything and back he returned from his van to the front door carrying a big box marked Canon!!!!

My darling husband had gone on line the day before, unbetold to me and ordered a Wi Fi printer. He is soooo in my good books at the moment and I love him to bits.

The printer is FAB as it allows me to be upstairs and send something to print downstairs without booting the kids off the downstairs computer. I am loving it and also getting some exercise running up and downstairs!

Well, this card is for my darling hubby, who doesn't like PINK! I wanted to make a more masculine shaped card, so cut my base card out of Kraft card. I then used my crimper again (told you I would be using it a lot) on some Coredinations red card. I then tried out the print and cut feature on my Pazzles. I drew a frame in red and coloured the hearts. It took me several attempts but I eventually succeeded and learnt so much on this project.

The hearts are from the Fun with Hearts.....printable stamp set from The Cutting Cafe which features 48 images, 23 different hearts in different sizes. I then punched out the greeting "always" from the Valentine's Day Mini Words....printable stamp set. I adore these digi mini words as I don't have to buy tons of stamps and I can save on my craft storage!


  1. Wow, that is a beautiful card Joanna, and well done on the print and cut. I managed it a few times but I've not much use for it for the moment.
    Your husband sounds just a lovely man and deserves this card. Fortunately I have a similar husband who encourages my art all the time.
