edwin valentine!

My mum rang last night with a request for a valentines card for her friend's teenage son to give to his girlfriend of 3 years. He wanted something a bit special and he couldn't find what he wanted in the shops so this is what I came up with.

I wanted to personalise it a bit so I printed out her name on edwin's balloon. I glazed the balloon and the little heart on edwin's jumper and gave martha a bit of a whirl on the heart cardstock and gold vellum.
I made 2 little tickets with some gold vellum by stamping with my versamark dazzle and heat embossed them. I used my fav inkadinkado embossing powder that I have had for 4 years, it is so good and just seems to last forever!!!
A bit of goldy coloured organza ribbon and a little gemstone bling and I called the front done!!!

I made the inside to match as I had a couple of scraps of the heart card left. I cuttlebug embossed the gold vellum on the inside with the little hearts embossing folder that came in my love language set.
I think it turned out cute, I hope he likes it and claire likes her personlised valentine's card!!!!
