Serendipity Valentine …

I love the word serendipity – the word itself sounds so lovely and its meaning is even better – a happy accident.  Today’s card is just that – a happy accident.

I was tidying my craft desk and had lots of scraps left over from other projects.  I don’t know about you, but I hate throwing away my scraps, especially if they are punched shapes ‘cos I always think they’ll come in useful for something.

I just loved these colours together  …

 Serendipity Valentine card

 The stamped heart in the centre is from a piece I’d been experimenting with designs for my daughter’s wedding invitations some months ago.   The world and compass stamped images were perfect – my Valentine means the world to me and he is my north, south, east and west … serendipity …


Here’s what you need to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!:

stamps: open sea, “love you” sentiment (retired); cardstock: very vanilla, cherry cobbler, crumb cake; inks: crumb cake, early espresso, cherry cobbler; punches: heart, small heart, oval, scalloped oval, corner rounder; accessories: stampin’ dimensionals, first edition dsp, festival of prints dsp.

Thanks for dropping by today
