First, here is Jason:
I love the dp of old-fashioned valentines like we gave out when we were little kids. For a "boy" card I couldn't bring myself to put lace on it, but this woven trim looks just fine. The plaid bow picks up all the pretty colors of the paper and the red buttons are very fun.
I colored Jason and his big heart with Copics, really laying on the rich red! I love Copics' reds! (You should see the back of the image!)
Next is Nessa:
The card measures 5" x 5" and the entire border is punched with MS punch around set. This is why I love MS punches so much -- the matching border and corner punches are inspired! The lace came from one of our many antique stores here. The button is actually a hard plastic button! I looks crocheted, doesn't it? I probably shouldn't have covered it with the ribbon.
Nessa is also colored with Copics and I went for a nearly-monochromatic scheme. I also deviated from the rich red, but love the corals just as much!
