Mugs & Kisses

A few weeks ago, I ordered a special stamp to make a Valentine's Day card for my niece.  In keeping with the chocolate overload theme of her gift, I went for a warm & cozy, creamy non-traditional card.   I also was bound and determined to use a very masculine chocolate stripe, to create a soft, feminine card.

Details: (all PTI unless otherwise noted)
Paper:  Fine Linen, Sweet Symphony print, metallic stripe (from my stash), Solar White (Neenah)
Stamp:  Cocoa Emma (C.C. Designs)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Tea Dye Duo
Other:  Medium Scallop die, Labels 14 (Spellbinders), satin ribbon (Offray), Crystal Effects (SU), Copics

I realized while cropping & editing this photo that I forgot to make and add a sentiment tag saying "Mugs & Kisses."  I'm not sure if I even need it.  What do you think?  Maybe, I'll just put it on the inside or on the gift tag.  Decisions, decisions.

Thanks for visiting again and I hope your Valentine's Day is happy. {hugs}
