No Hearts Love

I decided to attempt two things with this card... and it being my first post in my new blog... YIPPEE!!!... I wanted things different?! I wanted to make a Valentine's card WITHOUT hearts. I did stand with the usual red, but other than that I wanted it to be something "different" for Valentines. I've attempted to use my SU Big Shot with something other than card stock so here we go. I've used "glittered" felt and my Top Note die. It cut wonderfully! Obviously, the only thing that doesn't show is the small cuts around the edges which you'd normally see on card stock but that didn't concern me here. The other "first" I did was to use RUB-ONS on my ribbon! I had seen this done on someones page on Paper Craft Planet, sorry I don't remember who it was to give credit to. But it worked fabulously!!! I will warn you though, go slow and make sure you have EVERY inch of it rubbed on. If you look closely, you will see on the "L" the lower left corner was missing so I touched it up with my white gel pen. Try as I might, I couldn't get that little corner to lie down enough to rub on, but... the white works and you won't criticize to much, right?? *smile* So, without further ado... here's my FIRST POST!!! Oh yes... I did add rub ons in the corners and.... my new COPIC markers to color the flower. Yet another first.

Great first post Tina! Love the card and you have inspired me to cut something other than paper with my big shot. Keep up the good work!
