Happy Valentine's Day!

I am loving my Valentine's Day gift from my hubby. I am not a chocolate and flowers type of girl. I know, I know for the  love of chocolate what is wrong with me? I don't like the taste. And paying a fortune for flowers that will only last for one week…I am too frugal for that. So what is hubby to do? Craft supplies! I have been looking at Farber-Castells' gelatos and asked to have them for Valentine's Day and Patrick delivered. They are awesome! I wonder why I waited so long to give these a try.

I created these two Thank You cards using Donna Downey's Poppies stamp set. The cards utilize a simple design to keep the focus on both the stamped image and the bold colors of the gelatos. The first card was created by heat embossing the outline of the poppies and using gelatos to color the inside of the image. The next card has two heat embossed solid flowers. I used gelatos to color in the white space between the two images and then die cut Thank You to complete my cards.

Thank you for stopping by. Don't forget to view the other great projects on Unity's blog.

Happy Valentine's Day,
