I didn’t really know what to title this valentine, so I titled it with everything: Kraft Corrugated Red Foil Glimmer Valentine! I sort of copied my own valentine creation from last week when I was making some sample valentines for the valentines two moms and I made for their kids’ classes. But today, as I was looking for some current designer paper to use, I spied this Kraft Corrugated Paper on my table. Sometimes no matter what you THINK you are going to make, you might get inspiration and a different idea from something else you see. So I just decided to mix textures and looks with kraft textured paper, sparkly glimmer paper, and shiny red foil paper!
The card is a square 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ base of Whisper White, and layered with Red Foil Sheets pieces, Silver Glimmer Paper, and the Kraft Corrugated Paper (which also has white corrugated sheets in the package!). I used three punches: 1″ Square Punch, the Postage Stamp Punch (retired), and the heart punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. For a little embellishment, I tied a thread pulled from the 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon around the heart. And the greeting is from the popular stamp set in the Occasions Catalog, Bloomin’ Love.
