Large Valentine Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! Thank you for stopping by today!

Hope you are having a great day! I have been busy with Valentine's cards but have not completed all I want to do. Is anyone else running late with cards!
I recently received a beautiful card from a card exchange. It is a large size card and covered with so many beautiful details! Thank you so much Beckie and thanks for inspiring me to try a large card!!
This Valentine card is made from a 8 1/2" x 11" red Recollections cardstock and scored in half to make a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card. White layer is 8 1/4" x 5 1/4". Zebra print paper is 8" x 5". I am playing along with the sketch challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas this week.
Cricut Cartridges:
Victorian Romance - I just received this cartrige and I am loving the pretty images! I was using the Cricut Craft Room and the heart is cut at 4.5". Love is cut at 3.0"w x 1.694"h. I adjusted the size until I was pleased with it. Good thing about the CCR!
Elegant Edges - White mat is the Shadow feature on page 39. Sorry, I did not record the size but it measures 6 1/2"h. I cut the image in half to use on the card so I have an extra mat for later use.
Cuttlebug: Polka Dots folder on the white mat.
Martha Stewart Lace Hearts edge punch was used on the red paper. I added the cut out tiny red hearts on the white mat to add a bit of color.
The flower ribbon brad is from Spare Parts. I thought that was so cute so I just had to buy the package and then discovered the package was on sale!!
