My Valentine for You

Thanks for visiting my blog! It's time to join in some crafting fun by combining three challenges. Here they are:

1. Double Trouble #76 has three parts. The first part is required and uses what is called the 3-2-1 Recipe. Use at least three embellishments, at least two patterned papers, and at least one image. The second part, which is optional, is to add your card to the Heart2Heart Challenge. The third part, also optional, is to add hearts for St. Valentine's Day. This challenge is open from Monday, February 1, through Sunday, February 14, 2021.

2. Heart2Heart Challenge is partnering with Double Trouble #76. This challenge runs for the entire month of February. If you used at least one CTMH product and showed some love, you may be eligible to enter the H2H Challenge.

3. I also chose to use the sketch from Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge #406 as inspiration for my design. This weekly challenge is open from Monday, February 1, through Sunday, February 7, 2021.

I thought this might be a fun masculine Valentine. I wanted a "Big Foot" but only had a Yeti stamp set so that had to do. For my card, I adhered a panel of gray cardstock to a Kraft-type card base, followed by a panel of wood grain patterned paper. Using the sketch, I made a tag from red plaid paper, adding the stamped, die-cut image that I had colored with Copic markers. The little speech bubble serves as my sentiment. I added the jute tied in a simple bow to the tag and then added the tag to the card with foam tape. I also added a heart die-cut from red foiled cardstock. In keeping with the sketch and the 3-2-1 recipe. I added three embellishments. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock and another heart die-cut from plaid.

We hope you'll play along but it's up to you. I have added the blog links for your convenience.  We know you'll enjoy all three and Double Trouble offers a prize decided by a random draw of participants.
