When I Followed My Heart





When I followed my heart, it led me to you. 



This special valentine is unique in that I did not use any of the standard Cricut phrases, nor did I use any stamped version of a sentiment. I created this one especially for my Valentine, designing it in PhotoShop. It was a lot of fun to do.




The 5x5" white base has a layer of black on the front, then a heartsy layer. The scalloped white heart and the couple are from  the Sweethearts cart. Heart-shaped rhinestones add some glamour.


Inside
I wanted to use something from Straight From The Nest (my new fave cart). The lacy faux doily was cut at 4 inches, then topped with a small red heart and the phrase "you & me" from the Sweethearts cartridge.


It definitely fits our situation and the sentiment ties in with the poem I wrote just for him, on the inside of the card.


The right panel has a mat of the same printed red heart paper and poem on white over top.


My Graphic
Here is a closeup of the graphic.


I can't wait to give this card to my guy. I know he will love it and notice every little thing about it.








Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
