The Power Of Love...

"The best thing to hold onto in life, is each other" ~ Audrey Hepburn

Hello everyone and welcome to my third and final Valentine's Day project of the week!

I really hope you've enjoyed all the makes I've shared and thank you so much to everyone who has popped by to leave a comment or take a look!

I also had a wonderful surprise yesterday morning when I woke up to find that I was one of Tim Holtz's Valentine Blogworthy Links for my Love Is In The Air ATB! As you can imagine, I was over the moon to get this honour and so thrilled to be amongst so many wonderful, and worthy artists. You can check out Tim's post HERE but from the bottom of my heart ~ thank you so much Tim and Mario!

Okey dokey, now back to today's card which is all about a passport to love and is a tri fold style card, with multiple pages for you to decorate and maybe, even write personal messages for your loved one!
You can read all about how I created this card in the February issue of Making Cards Magazine  which should be available as a back copy, HERE!
On the front of the card, I used the heart from the Tim Holtz Love Struck die and after painting it with Festive Berries Distress Paint, I added a layer of Rock Candy Crackle paint to give this gorgeous crackled effect and layered a brass key over the top.
I gave the Prima die cut gears a rusty effect using Distress Paints and embossing powders and added these to the dictionary pages together with smaller die cut hearts, tissue tape and a date banner.
To complete the card, I stamped the message on the back panel and added small wooden hearts and an arrow!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
See you soon ~ love Emma xxx
