A Valentine

Valentine Defined Hearts


This is a card I made while making projects and samples for my most recent stamp camp.  I used the stamp set in the Occasions Mini, "Valentine Defined" on page 9.  If you don't already own this stamp set, you should put it on your next order (especially with Sale-A-Bration!)!  We used it on several cards at my stamp camp and everyone loved it.  The Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #121809 is used on the border of this card, and I can tell you all my stampers really loved this embossing folder, too.  I liked the simple, soft elegance of this card and didn't even want to add a layer under the greeting, which I had punched with the Decorative Label Punch #120907.  

Here is how I made the card.  The card base is Pink Pirouette with a layer of Basic Gray on top.  The quarter piece of Whisper White card stock was embossed in the Framed Tulips Folder; however, to make it fit on top of the Basic Gray layer, it had to be made smaller so it is actually trimmed inside one of the embossed lines around the outer edge.  Then I very lightly sponged the embossed edge with Pink Pirouette ink.  The stems and hearts are stamped with the Valentine Defined set, inked with Certainly Celery marker on the stems and Pink Pirouette marker on the hearts.  You have room to stamp 2 1/2 times going across the card.  The greeting is from Grateful Greetings #116511 and punched with the Decorative Label Punch.  You could sponge some Pink Pirouette ink around the edge of the label if you wanted.  Change the greeting and you can have a card for any occasion!
