Valentine Dreams

Good Morning, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I always look forward to what the New Year brings and all the fun new dies that are released. I wanted to get started on a Valentine’s Day card since that will sneak up on us soon. The Swan die has so many uses I thought it would be fun to give it a little dimension by adding pink and white glitter leaves. Yes, you do have to die cut a lot but I think the end result is worth it. The big Splash border was a fun addition and placing the Lattice Heart & Vine in the center of the design connected the two swans to complete the card.

  1. Deane, this is a "knock me over" sensational, beautiful card! WOW! Those swans are just gorgeous with the different colors in pink and white. I love the heart die behind them too. This is one of the prettiest cards I've ever seen!

  2. Stunning is the only word Diane for this card, the dies are gorgeous and I love the leaves to make their wings, love everything about it, hugs Kate x

  3. Stunning, love all the swirls and the layering for the feathers is just lovely!

  4. Beautiful work….lovely details. Happy New Year.

  5. Oh! I just love your pink and glittery feathered swans! What a brilliant idea. Indeed that Valentine's Day will be here before you know it. I was going to start some cards for it but caught an upper respiratory virus instead. Now instead of hearts and flowers I get inhale - exhale.

  6. Wonderful use of your die cuts. Love how you brought them all together to make a stunning card.
    Happy New Year!

  7. Your creativity with the punches and dies is awe-mazing, Diane! I never would have come up with this brilliant idea to use leaves as swan feathers, but the result is just stunning!! Happy New Year!! Hugs, Darnell

  8. First of all I'd like to wish you a very happy new year dear Diane! Look forward to seeing so much more of your beautiful creations! Your swan card is so delicate, love how you made your feathers, gorgeous!! Hugs, Ira x
