Hello all! I hope you are staying warm wherever you are. Today I am sharing some more Valentine’s Day cards that I made.
We made this card at a recent Stampin’ Up Workshop. The cardstock is Whisper White, Basic Black, and Real Red. Stamp sets used: Delightful Dozen, Language of Love, and Tags 4 You. Ink is Real Red. We also used the Chevron punch for the front of the card.
Cut a piece of black paper 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (this will give you the extra flap on the right side of the card. Watch this video on how to cut paper this way: http://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=nwedAASXzok. She explains it so well.) Decorate at shown.
For this card, I took my inspiration from France Martin (Frenchie). She used the Hardwood Stamp which is in the new occasions catalog from Stampin’ Up. Since I don’t have that stamp yet, I used the wood grained DSP from the Well Worn paper pack. For the heart I used the Heart punch and punched it from the bottom left corner of the card front I then took a scrap of the Woodgrain paper and placed it behind the punched out heart and sponged with the sponge dauber. I then attached this to the back of the front panel using dimensionals to give it a 3-D affect. The sentiment is stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed using white embossing powder. I used the Envelope Liners Framelits dies to make a liner for my envelope.
These cards use the Way to Be stamp set (retired) and embossed paper doilies. I will have more on this technique in my next blog post. Cardstock is Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Real Red, and Melon Mambo. The heart shaped doily I got at Michael’s.
I hope you have been inspired with these cards to create some of your own. All the cards today are the standard A2 card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
