Technique Corner: Make a Romantic Card

I don't have a lot of chances to make a romantic card with butterflies, a little bling and flowers, but since I was in the mood for one, I decided to make a card anyway. I'm sure I'll find just the right person to give it to. I wrote FLY on the card because I believe that everyone should fly, if it is after their dream, or after their love, fly on the wings of the imagination or fly with the notes of a favorite song. We all should have the opportunity to fly high and be happy.

If you want to make a romantic card here are a few tips:
·         Choose papers with soft, bright colors.
·          Use papers with patterns that are not too big or bold.
·         Pick a theme that has a magical or loving feeling to it like fairies, hearts, birds, butterflies and of course flowers.
·         Distress the edges to soften the look of the paper.
·         Add embellishments that go together with your theme and colors.
·         Add pearls or rhinestones.
·         Add a little glitter or shimmer to enhance the magical effect.
