Cherry Love!

Hi Everyone, this is a card I made for my hubby, he will be surprised I did one, as it's been a number of years since we sent one another cards for Valentine's Day, he says he shows me love everyday so doesn't need a Special Day to say it, (he is right, he does - Aw!) AND after nearly 52 years too.

Anyhow on to my card. It follows the Outlawz Challenge sketch for this week. I admire those people who can see the sketch in a different form, my mind is too simple for that!


I can't remember why cherries were decided on, but I do love the image. I laid it all out in PS and used blending mode on the heart to make it appear 3D I also added a wood effect overlay, and shaped the text so it appeared to be in the wood, not sure I achieved that though. then printed it with a couple of layers of cherries and cut it out (by hand, my Cameo wouldn't play). The red background paper is pearlised so has a lovely sheen. I 3D glossed the digi buttons. The sentiment is mine!
