Sitting Next to You...

Hi there!! So how was your Valentine's? :) We stayed at home and baked some homemade enchiladas and danced to old Elvis songs (our first dance at our wedding was an Elvis song). It was a great Valentine's!

One of the things my husband and I love to do is sit on the couch together after dinner and on Saturday and Sunday mornings. That time together is so precious and I treasure it. So when I saw the On My Couch set I knew I would make him a card. :)

The pearls were originally white. I colored them with a light brown copic and the shine of the pearl makes them appear gold. The paper behind the couch is a gold shimmer paper.

And here's the inside decorated. :) I added some score lines above and below the hearts strip.

I also made a coordinating envelope using PTI's Simply Valentine patterned paper and envelope liner die.

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's! Today has been a gorgeous day here and tonight I'm going to a cake decorating class. Should be fun. Can't wait! Have a sunny day!!

All supplies listed are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise listed.
STAMPS: On My Couch, Chair-ished (sentiment), Sweet Love, BB: Hearts
PAPER: Pure Poppy, SS White, Gold shimmer (Core'dinations Pearls paper line at Joann's), Simply Valentine patterned paper
INK: Red Brick, Midnight Black (Versamagic)
DIES: 2.5" Limitless Layers, Envelope Liner die, Double-ended Banners
OTHER: SS white envelopes, white pearls (from Michaels, colored gold with light brown copic)

Monica, this card wonderfully encapsulates your beautiful sunny disposition that clearly radiates from your creations. I adore the heart couch and the quaint trio of Brads. The layering of the banner is also very cool. The inside is just perfect as well. This card is another winner!

Such a sweet and heartfelt card, Monica! I'm sure your husband absolutely loved it! It is in all the details that makes this card extra special! And one of these days I must get that envelope liner die! I'm glad you had a lovely Valentine's Day!

Monica...your post was so sweet! We like to just chill out and watch TV together at night as well. You don't have to go out on Valentine's Day!

Debbie Gaydos said...

This is SOOOO cute! Love how you finished the inside, too. And DARN you, I had finally talked myself out of the 2.5" limitless layers, at least for now.... but this makes me want them all over again!
