Over on KCUK, Dana mentioned that it will soon be Chinese New Year, the Year of the tiger and wondered if we could do Tigers and Valentine’s Day, so I just had to have a go :) Didn’t have a Love symbol OR a bigger (or better) tiger, but this was my play, lol. The Background was the packaging for one of my Secret Santa gifts from Vix in 2008 and is beautifully glitzy with Moonshadow mists. The large heart is a Paperartsy stamp, embossed and cut out, the symbol stamped and embossed on the heart and the other hearts are punched from scrap bits of black card. I didn’t scan this too well cos I’ve cut off the bottom, so have narrowed the border all the way round. Not really my sort of thing but fun to have a go, just to see if it could be done ...

Tiger Valentine

I haven’t included an insert but the back corners are punched with a Heart shaped Corner Adorner, ready to hold a sheet of card/paper with a message, just to stay with the theme :)

I like the balance of the tiger and hearts. Unusual combination but it has worked. Lynne M x
