Stolen Valentine Kisses with Creative Cafe' KOTM

Hi everyone Laura here....Happy 2014!!  We are starting off with a bang, and some Valentine inspiration with the newest Creative Cafe' Kit from The Rubber Cafe'.....For the Love of Cats and Dogs.

Today I'm sharing this sweet little card with you!

The Base:
4 1/4" by 5 1/2" black cardstock
First Layer:
4" by 5 1/4" red cardstock
Second Layer:
3" by 4" piece of black cardstock
2 3/4" by 4" piece of kraft carstock (wait to adhere)

To create the banners, I absolutely loved that one of the 6x6 sheets of
paper was this fun border strip paper:

I cut one sheet into the individual strips, then used about 2 or 3 inches of one strip to make the banners.

They are layered onto a strip of Scor-Tape along the top of the kraft cardstock piece to make it easy to place, then adhered down the rest of the way with Scrap Happy Glue.  Then a length of twine is wrapped around twice, and finished with a knot, and then a bow.  Then it's adhered to the card front.

The super sweet lil' Valentine Pup is stamped in Black Tuxedo Memento ink, and then colored with Copic Markers: R46, E35, E53, and RV02. I trimmed him to an approximate 1 3/4" by 2" size, and framed him out with the black cardstock and adhered him with foam tape.

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Ink, and trimmed to a slender banner, with black cardstock to frame it.  The rhinestone hearts and heart pins are sweet Valentine touches to finish it off perfectly.

Thanks for stoppin' by the cafe' many great projects to come....make sure to check back daily to get a jump start on your Valentine crafting!
