Skulls and Paisley Valentine

I found two sheets of this double-sided skulls and paisley paper on clearance at The Paper Zone and bought one for this card and one for my friend Danielle (for whenever I see her again!).  I didn’t see it as Halloween paper because I thought the paisleys would lend themselves to forming a heart.  I made this Valentine card using burgundy textured paper, a button, and the double-sided paper.  Once again, I used my Crop-O-Dile Corner Chomper to shape the corners of the paper and used a black Zig marker to create the faux stitching. The little heart card was cut out by hand and tucked into the front of the card after I jotted a little note inside and added faux stitching with a white pen.  I added little tear-drop shaped pieces I cut from the paper and outlined them in a silver marker.  Voila, it was done! 🙂

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
