Surprise Valentine Card - Canvas Corp

Hi! I'm sharing a Valentine card that I created for Canvas Corp today. The Creative Crew was challenged to create a surprise Valentine card for someone special and this is what I came up with.

I mixed the traditional Valentine colors of red and pink with a healthy dose of black. This card needs to fit inside an envelope so I tried to keep that in mind while designing. Rather than pile on a lot of embellishments, I chose to stack thin layers of different patterned papers and textiles. I love this mix of cardstock, tissuestock, corrugated cardboard, stamped canvas and burlap!

I added two small embellishments to the front of this card; a thin love charm that I tied to a piece of hemp rope and a small cupid that I cut from a printed notecard and attached with a mini clothespin.

I'm looking forward to delivering this card to a special someone!

Thanks for stopping by today!
