Can you believe it is Valentine week?! Valentine’s Day is Saturday, February 14th, so it is time to get those valentines made and mailed! Doesn’t making valentines remind you of being in elementary school and decorating a shoe box or lunch sack to hold all your class valentines? Just thinking about valentines probably reminds you of construction paper and paste if you made some of your valentines! Maybe you even had doilies or glitter or maybe stickers if you were lucky!
This valentine is made with high quality Stampin’ Up! card stock and sophisticated adhesive, not construction paper and paste! I got the idea to fold a sheet of Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack in half and die cut a heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies. The die is placed just below the fold at the top of the paper (be careful of the pattern you are choosing so that the design will be going the right way!) so that you can open up the heart at the fold. I also cut a smaller heart from Whisper White and stamped with a greeting from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set. The little red heart is punched with the heart punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. I also punched two Basic Black arrows from the What’s Up Punch. One is adhered so that the tail end shows and the other so that the front tip of the arrow shows. The white heart is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The heart is adhered to a piece of Real Red card stock embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The red card stock is layered on the Basic Black card stock. When you open the heart, you can see the pattern from the other side of the sheet from the Stacked with Love Paper Stack. In order to have a greeting inside, I die cut a smaller Whisper White heart and stamped with a greeting from the You Plus Me Stamp Set. I love the color scheme of black & white and Real Red, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral. You can buy the paper stack and stamp set together in a Bundle and save 15%!
