Valentine-A Different Kind of Love (Valentine's Day o altfel de iubire)

This week's theme for CUTTLEBUG BE INSPIRED #17 was LOVE.
Tema acestei saptamani pentru CUTTLEBUG BE INSPIRED #17 este IUBIREA.

My first thought was: heart, love birds....
Then I said: NO, that is too common, I need something more personal. So I tried to define what love means in my life. I wrote my definition on a piece of paper and went to bed.
That was when this card idea came to me: I suddenly realized I knew about LOVE that was GREATER THAN ALL.

Primul lucru la care m-am gandit a fost: inimioare, pasarele indragostite....
Apoi m-am gandit ca ar fi mai bine sa fie ceva mai personal, cum ar fi o definitie a iubirii prin prisma experientei mele. Mi-am notat definitia pe o bucatica de hartie si am mers la culcare.
Inainte sa adorm insa, in inte mi-a rasarit un gand: Cunosc o IUBIRE care LE INTRECE PE TOATE.

If you don't know what I mean, please read its definition on the front of my card.

Pentru cei care nu inteleg la ce ma refer, cititi va rog textul de pe felicitare:
Fiindca atat de mult a iubit Dumnezeu lumea, ca a dat pe singurul Lui Fiu, pentruca oricine crede in El, sa nu piara, ci sa aiba viata vesnica … " (Ioan 3:16)

The word art is done by myself (actually it is my first word art) on the computer and printed. I enjoyed making it tremendously since there were holy words I was typing, I guess. Therefore I thought I should give you the opportunity to enjoy these words yourself.

I printed mine 10 cm (4 inch) wide, then cut it out with my manicure scissors.
Tipariti la dimensiunea de 10 cm si decupati.

The initial label template is from Mel Stampz but I edited it to have double border.
Template-ul pentru eticheta l-am luat de la Mel Stampz, dar l-am modificat pentru a avea contur dublu.

The rose buds are a gift from my friend Angie. Thank you, Angie! They arrived at the perfect time. I will send you a bigger thank you soon :)
Bobocii de trandafir i-am primit de la
Angie careia vreau sa-i multumesc pe acesta cale.

For the embossing I used Cuttlebug Script Texture Folder.
Am stantat hartia folosind Cuttlebug Script Texture Folder.

The craft paper is recycled from a gift wrapping paper tube. I will have another project to show you this week using the same paper and texture, so be sure to ad me to your blogroll/follow.
Hartia maro este reciclata (tubul pe care era infasurata o hartie de ambalat cadouri).
