Happy Valentine’s Day!!! I would like to wish you all a wonderful day filled with love! No matter what, just know that you are loved and you have made a difference in my life and many others too!
This simple and classic card is perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day you would like to share you love….which should be every day! 🙂
I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I layered on a piece of Pink Pirouette that was ran through the Big Shot in the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder. I love how much texture this adds to the card! Then, I took a piece of Real Red (5-1/4″ x 2″) and added it to the center with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using these to adhere it on helps secure it because the foam falls into the grooves of the embossed cardstock for a smooth look!
Next, I took three Whisper White squares measuring 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″. I stamped the hearts in Memento Black Ink as a bit of a diagonal….stamping perfectly straight isn’t going to happen so I had fun with it! For the third heart, I stamped the greeting in Real Red Ink. All of these images are from the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set! Then I colored in the hearts with the Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I didn’t really do any blending but just colored with the light and dark in different spots!
After coloring, I added the squares to the card front. There are a few ways to do this for perfect placement. One way is to place them all down and then pick up each one individually to add adhesive and the other is to adhere the left and right and then center the middle one! To finish off the card, I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers for a pop of shine!
Again, Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Stampin’
