Mi Enamorado

With Valentine's Day just around the corner I could not resist making a card for my first project this month.  I know Valentines are usually red or pink but we are celebrating green this month and Sabor Papel has a beautiful green design in their Amor collection.  Because green is not a traditional Valentine color, this design would also make a terrific anniversary card.

Sabor Papel Amor Collection - paper and embellishment cut outs
Young Lovers II collage sheet
Gold Glam Sticker Corners
Gel Xtreme PEN gold
Memento Tear Drop ink pad
Sponge Dauber

Choose which part of the background you wish to use.

Ink the edges of each piece just to hide the white paper core.  I also sponged ink around the background about 1/4 - 1/2 inch from the edges.

I cut into the design to separate the two leaves and the two large roses so that the other elements could be interwoven.  I just touched up the cut area with a pink marker to hide the slight blemish.

Gold corners and a touch of gold gel ink bring a little shine to the card.  The little gold hearts don't show in the photos, but I dotted the I's in Amor De Mi Vida with little hand-drawn hearts.  The candle flame is also highlighted with gold ink.  The lovely lady is "holding" two red rose stickers.

The finished panel was mounted on green card stock and I think it really makes the red roses pop!

Come back again tomorrow to see another Design Team Member project !  Remember to share your own Altered Pages projects with the hastag #Altered Pages.
