Hello and Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! Our talented team has created projects this month with the theme of Love! I’m using the new Stampin’ Up! Forever and Always bundle with the new Snail Mail designer series paper to make a Valentine. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I started by cutting out the Basic White scalloped border using the border die from the Peonies Dies and adhering it to the back of the striped paper from the Snail Mail designer series paper. I adhered this panel to another Snail Mail DSP panel – Real Red with the Blushing Bride hearts. I adhered this layered DSP panel to a Blushing Bride mat and wrapped it with Blushing Bride twine and made a bow. I popped this on the front of a Real Red card base with dimensionals.
I used the scalloped heart from the Heart Punch Pack to cut out a Blushing Bride heart. I cut the Love word from the Always Dies (part of the Stampin’ Up! Forever and Always bundle) from Basic Black and the backing from Basic White and adhered these together. I stamped the You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever and Always photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White and cut it out with the small slanted label.
I popped the layered Love die cuts on the heart with dimensionals and adhered the You label with glue dots. I popped the heart on the card front with dimensionals and added some cute red resin hearts to finish the card front. I just love that layered Love die cut with all the hearts!
For the inside of the card, I stamped the little flower at the top of a Basic White panel and colored it with Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with more of the Snail Mail hearts DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Forever and Always bundle is great for Valentine’s Day cards as well as any other celebrations of Love like Weddings, Anniversaries and just because.
