A card for my Valentine

My husband and I tend not to celebrate Valentine's Day too much as we have our wedding anniversary close to February 14th. But everyone needs a card! I already had a concept in mind when I saw the challenges over at CASology and Use It Tuesday.


Fasten your buttons.
Anchor your eyelets.
Tighten those brads.

This week, we want to see your FASTENERS!!

The buttons I used for this card have been in my stash since 2009, as well as the rub ons. I purchased both of them when one of my favourite stores was having their closing down sale, which was before my three year old was born, so I am glad to finally be using them! Of course, the buttons and cardstock are a burgundy red in keeping with the CASology cue card.

I embossed the burgundy cardstock for a romantic lace look, and used a variety of burgundy buttons to make a heart shape. The rub on I used has some meaning for my hubby, as he is a fan of The Beatles.

Happy Valentines Day!

Supplies used:
Creative Memories: White cardstock.
Stampin' Up: Bravo Burgundy Cardstock, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.
Kaisercraft: After Five Collection rubons.
Other: Cuttlebug, buttons from my stash.
