Valentine's Day

Have you ever thought about Valentine's Day and not assumed everything to be red? Well at Cricut Cardz Challenge this week, the call is to made a card for this special day but using only blue, green and while ONLY. It kind of turns your thinking upside down doesn't it.

I started with the bird cage cut from a metallic blue/grey card stock using the Cricut Serenade cartridge. The song bird was also cut using the same cartridge. I had used some blue marble designer paper that I used as the backdrop for the card. The birdcage is sitting on a "ledge" made of white cardstock punched with a Fiskar's edge punch and stamped a line of hearts in blue ink. I also stamped the sentiment "i love YOU" inthe same blue ink. Small white hearts floating out from the birdcage were cut using the Cricut Wild Card cartridge. The finishing touch was to add a simple lime green satin ribbon to the top of the birdcage. Voila! A Valentine's Day card without using red can be done successfully.
