PTI's MIM Valentine Ombre

I'm here with a card I made for the PTI Make-It Monday challenge where Melissa has us making Valentine's using ombre stamping. Confession time...
I watched the video on Monday and didn't check out the blog again until today when I got ready to link up my card. I forgot to make it a Valentine's card! I hope it will still count for the challenge.

I used the strawberry from Still Life Summer and that's where you'll find my ombre stamping. The colors I used were Melon Berry, Pure Poppy and Scarlet Jewel. (I just noticed that the strawberries are shaped like hearts so it's all good!) I poured the strawberries into PTI's sweet little die cut tea cup and used a sentiment from Choose Joy. I added some pretty little flowery details from that set for added interest.

I even prettied up the inside of the card.

You can find all the details on Nichole's blog

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

  7. Your card is just lovely! Those sweet heart-shaped strawberries are perfect for Valentines Day. Perhaps there could be a "Grateful for You, Valentine" inside :)

  14. Birgit, this card is fabulous, in my opinion. Could be out of a magazine, for reals! Good idea to put one of the strawberries outside of the cup!
