With Valentine's day creeping ever closer, this card would, I think, suit that day or even an anniversary card....or just to tell someone that you love them! The papers I used are from the All Loved Up collection from Dovecraft and are not blatantly valentiney (??) but they suit! I chose a red polka dotted paper for the background and a dark red heart print piece for the punched border. I edged it with a MS broderie anglaise punch and added some self-adhesive paper lace. I embossed a square of white card with tiny hearts and mounted it onto a scalloped square which was adhered with foam pads to the card base. I cut the heart from dark red glitter paper and adhered it to an identical heart cut from card to give it stability. I backed the heart with Papermania spotted glittered vellum and adheted it to the square with foam pads,I wrapped a piece of red grosgrain ribbon around the bottom corner of the square and added a bow and layered flower with a couple of paper tendrils. I cut the sentiment from red card and added red Stickles, punched some tiny red hearts to adorn the corners of the square and added gemstone swirls to the punched border to finish. I added another punced border and paper lace piece to the inside along with athe 'always' sentiment and some more punched hearts.
