January 2017 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Today is the January Papertrey Ink Blog hop and Nichole gave us this photo for inspiration.
Love the black background with white and red accents - and since I'm making Valentines for a sale at church - that's what I made for this blog hop!  I made two cards and the only difference is the die I used for the white frame.  Here is the first one I made - the frame is from Tag Sale #10, the LOVE is a Wonderful Words die and the flowers are Bitty Button Stacks dies.  The LOVE and 2 of the flowers are popped up on foam dots. I bent up the edges on some of the blooms as well. The scallop edge of this frame makes this card feel feminine I think.
I used all the same dies for this second card accept the white frame is Heart Squared and this looks more masculine to me with that one change.
  I can't wait to see how everyone else was inspired by the beautiful cookies!  The hop is taking place over on Nichole's blog.

Paper:  White, Pure Poppy, True Black - PTI
Accessories:  Dies - Tag Sale #10, Bitty Button Stacks, Wonderful Words: Love, Heart Squared - PTI, foam dots, black rhinestones.
