Valentines with the help of Stix2 & PaperMill.

Is it me or had this month been the longest January ever, well the longest month ever. It's dragged, but we are coming to the end and the first big occasion of the year coming up in Febuary is Valentines Day.  It's another occasion that is getting bigger and bigger over here in the UK. If your lucky you will received a valentines card from your loved one this year or maybe an unknown?
 I had such great news yesterday that was being asked to be apart of PaperMill Directs design team. PaperMill products have even products/card stock Iv used for many years now but it is recently Iv used them in near every project and card I create. The variety and quality is exceptional and I urge everyone to log onto PaperMill directs website where you can try some of their products, you will fall in love with them, I promise. They have the most gorgeous hammered white and Ivory card should you be making wedding invites or wedding stationary. This year I will be making my friends wedding invites which will be made with a complete combination of PaperMill and Stix2 products. 
 Going back to valentines, I made this card last night which is an A5 card where the card blank is PaperMill A4 super smooth card folded in half with a score board. The score is perfect and crack free. It's a simple cards that is all based around matting and layering with a tad bit of stamping, die cutting and embossing. Many ask what the font is called I use on most of cards and it's in Microsoft word and it's called Freehand 591BT.
