Love is in the air

Hello all, today I created a stunning Valentines Day card, after getting home from a very hectic day in town in the horrible cold weather we have had snow once again, luckily it has gone though due to having rain afterwards. I did treat myself while out today to a lovely heart border punch which I just couldn't wait to use, so I have used it on this creation 

Here is the card I have made today 

I started off with a blank A4 card, and all my goodies that were along the valentines theme, so I firstly played around with the design, once I was happy with it I then put it all together properly on the A4 card.
Firstly I used my X-Cut Hearts border punch on the red glitter card, I then got my gold glitter card and stuck this down onto the A4 card after making sure it was the right size, a little had to be cut off but not much at all, after I stuck my red glitter card on top
After doing this I then got my valentine papers I had chosen and used my border punch on them to round off the edges, I then took my first sheet arranged it how I wanted it to go, then glued this down, I did the same for the other two sheets.
Now I had my backing cards and papers in position and stuck down, Now I moved onto the image, I stuck some square tabs on to the back of it and positioned as required, once I was happy with it I then chose a sentiment to go at the top again put square tabs onto the back of it and stuck it into position, and then i decided to add two red feathers to either side of the image.
Lastly all that was needed was a little sparkle, so I then put a diamant√© into each corner of the image and three lovely glitter hearts in the corner of the top valentine paper going down the card.
