Good Morning Everyone! Today is our Inkin’ Krew monthly Blog Hop. Welcome aboard. Please continue the hop to see what our other creative team members have done.
It has certainly been cold here in the heart of the country. We do have some snow, but nothing like the northeast and east coast has had. Actually, we are so dry, I wouldn’t mind a foot of wet snow. I decided many years ago that it is a good thing we humans are NOT in control of the weather, or it would be a REAL mess.
Today’s card is from the Sure Do Love You Bundle.
I began by cutting a stencil from a Post-It Note with the 3 small hearts in the Lots to Love Box Framelits, part of the Sure Do Love You Bundle. You save 10% when you order the bundle as opposed to ordering dies and stamps separately. I digress.
Using the stencils and 3 shades of pink (Berry Burst, Melon Mambo and Powder Pink) I sponged little hearts at random over a Whisper White Thick card stock panel. Over this I adhered with Liquid Glue a strip of Silver Foil Sheets. Taking a piece of Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, I taped it to the back and over the Silver Foil strip.
Use the Embossing Buddy to go over the card stock before stamping in Versamark. The large outline heart was stamped in Versamark on Berry Burst. The same procedure was followed for the ‘You Are My Valentine’ heart. Both were then heat embossed with Silver Emboss Powder and die cut with their coordinating dies.
The outline heart was then adhered at an angle to the heart-stamped Whisper White panel with Liquid Glue. The ‘valentine’ heart was placed inside this outline and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon bow was attached at the base of the heart with a Glue Dot and three rhinestones finish the front.
On the inside, a single outline heart was stamped in Berry Burst on Whisper White card stock. Over this, the sentiment banner, also from Sure Do Love You, was stamped in Powder Pink. This panel was adhered with Liquid Glue to a mat of Berry Burst and into the card base.
The envelope flap received more random stenciled hearts. The small leaf stamp from Sure Do Love You was stamped in the corner of the envelope front in Powder Pink as well as a single small heart in Berry Burst.
