My third Valentine friendship card that I made was also for a cardmaking buddy! I decided to use another card kit provided by my sister Heidi Gonzales: My Lil' Scrap Corner (blogspot.com). Fortunately, I had the patterned paper used on this card because I really wanted to make it a 5-1/2" square card from its original A2 size (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"). To do this, I had to make a new cardbase, so I decided to switch it to brown and add a mat layer in Flamingo pink BoBunny Double Dot. I had to add another piece of the patterned paper below the brown cardstock belly band. I got out my Copic markers to color the little Magnolia stamp. I thought my card turned out well, and I really like the change in cardbase color and the added Double Dot. They seemed to bring out the colors in the background pattern my little colored image popped better. I hope my friend, Charlene, liked her little Valentine Magnolia card.
