Hi Friends, As it was raining here last weekend , I could'nt go out much. So spent time in customizing the blog's interface. Hope you all like the new appearance of the blog. Since its time for valentine's day crafts i see many challenges theme to be " love". Hence today am sharing with you a 3D valentine card. 

I did this project by recycling old ointment and cereal boxes. Since am making this project in valentine theme i chose the pattern papers of the colours red, white, pink and black.

This is the first time am using a digital stamp. This stamp i got it from 'A day for daisies online shop. I coloured the digital image using watercolour pencils.

I pasted two hearts on both the sides of the card and decided to write quotes related to heart and love. On one side of the card the quote " Come live in my heart and pay no rent " is handwritten with black marker. 

On the other side of the card I wrote the quote " My heart is perfect because you are inside". The borders are crocheted using 'g' hook

On the top of the card i sketched the word love using markers and gliter pens and added a shining heart. 

Handmade foam sheet flowers were used as embellishments.
