Now, I turn my creative thoughts to cards for my children. My first two will be for the first and second born. First, is David, which this means a card with a masculine orientation. I had a Valentine card kit that I got from my sister, Heidi Gonzales (My Lil' Scrap Corner). Thanks Heidi for allowing me to do my own tweaking to make your card designs have a little of "me" in them.
I wanted to be able to use the kit parts, but I also wanted to enlarged the original card a bit. I cut a new cardbase, brown mat layer, and found a new patterned paper. I then Copic colored the little Mo Manning image and assembled the card, which retains the flavor of the original design!
Michele, my second-born, and her husband will get a card from an original design by Heidi also. I made this card at a card class given by my sister. I thought it would be just right for them because Don is in the Coast Guard, so this Magnolia stamp of Edwin the Sailor is perfect. I changed out the ticket to a sentiment that fit Valentine's Day and added the red heart border at the bottom. I actually think this little border enhances the original card design.
