We're Quite the Pear Valentines Card

Thanks to my thoughtful husband's good shopping, we have been enjoying Harry and David pears at our house for a couple of weeks now.  These pears are delicious and in my opinion are surely the worlds best pears!  So it only seemed fitting to make a pear themed Valentines card for my husband!  I used Spellbinders Assorted Fresh Fruit Shapeabilities pear die to cut and embossed a plaid paper by My Mind's Eye called Pajama Plaid.
I used the Copic Air Brush with red 39 on a green cardstock.
The pears were placed with a pop dot under one for added dimension.

The coordinating red frames were cut and embossed in a Big Kick with Spellbinders' Resplendent Rectangles.  The background of the pears was airbrushed, pears were stamped, embossed and cut out and frames were mounted on another layer of the Pajama Plaid.  The sentiment was stamped with an Archival stamp pad in black.  The sentiment was one of those clear stamps that come in the tiny packages and are usually at the checkout counter.  I'm sorry, I didn't keep the packaging and so I do not know the name of the maker.

A red border cut out with Fleur De Lis Accents was placed along the bottom edge.

All layered up and ready to gift with love.
