Metamorphosis Monday

OK. I'm back this week with a before and after shot of a simple Valentines card I made for my DH. You should be able to see it in larger size if you click on photo. I found some plain white damask embossed cards at Michael's for $1, I think there were 6 in a pack. I simply took some scrap paper stock stamped it and then used some red stickles to put dots around the card stock. I then took some of Teresa Collin's Crush paper and cut out the two tickets and glued one down flat and used dimensionals on the other for a little pop. It turned out cute and it only took me like 5mins to make it and I left it there for the stickles to dry and presto, chango a plain card made fab. Hope you are having a great start to your week, be sure to stop over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch to enjoy all the other before and after links she has posted. Ciao for now!

p.s. the frame I used to display this weeks before/after photo is by Rhonna Farrer you can find it by clicking here or for some similar frames go to her new site by clicking on the house of 3 blinkie.

Very cute card. Handmade cards are so much nicer than those you buy. Nice work
