It is over-the-top hot here in Australia right now (38 celsius today) so I retreated to my craft room where it’s relatively cool. (Air conditioning is going full-blast!)

I’ve been working on Valentine’s Day cards, and when I saw the CAS challenge at STAMPlorations, which has an optional colour twist of silver or gray, I decided to make a card to enter.

I’m also entering this card in the STAMPlorations Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge.

I started the card by stamping two elements from the STAMPlorations stamp set Scribbly Splattery Grunge , which I got as part of my Stamp Club order in November. I used gray, and also red as a traditional Valentine’s colour. I then cut out two hearts – a large on in yellow, and a small one in red. I distressed the edges of the large heart before gluing it down.

Once stuck down, I added some glossy accents to the red heart to give it some dimension.

Last but not least, I cut out the word “love” in matching red, which comes from a Spellbinders die set. It actually says “With Love” but I did some surgery on the die cut to suit what I wanted.

That’s it. Very simple.
