It’s time to start those Valentine cards! If you came here from Linda Cullen’s fabulous blog … welcome! You can get back to her via the button below.
Here is my simple …yet … So Sweet Valentine. I needed some inspiration, so I turned to the Occasions Catalog (page 9!). I just LOVE the sentiments in the Hello Life stamp set … so sweet!!!!
This card is made with one of our Whisper White Note Cards.
I used the heart strip from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies for the heart cutouts on a 4 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ Whisper White layer. (There are so many pieces to work with in that set of dies …. well worth the purchase!) I just lined up the die and cut three times to get the 3 rows. Then I stamped the sentiment in Strawberry Slush Classic Ink. Tip: Remember to use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat under your cardstock when stamping with the Photopolymer Stamps for a crisp and solid image.
The glimmer hearts were created by inserting small strips of Silver Glimmer paper that I dyed with Strawberry Slush re-inker and a sponge dauber. (Your dauber will get glitter on it … DO NOT use your ink pad for this!!! … you don’t want a sparkle-y ink pad.) AND take-it-from-me: Allow the strips to dry well before assembling … Strawberry Slush finger prints somehow appeared on my first effort!
I always like to add something to the inside of my cards. I cut some Strawberry Slush hearts with the die and glued them around the sentiment from Something to Say from the annual catalog.
I hope you enjoyed your time here ….
