Good Morning! Monday is Valentine’s Day – Do you have all your Valentines ready? I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings stamp set and a bunch of die sets to pull together this pretty Valentine for my sweetie. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of the heart design Pattern Party Host designer series paper to a Bermuda Bay mat and adhered them to a Basic White note card with liquid glue. I cut a Basic White panel with the second largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and layered my die cuts on top.
I cut the scalloped circle and stitched heart from Real Red using the Give It a Whirl dies. This die set has some wonderful stitched shapes in addition to the spinning wheel – clouds, stars and hearts, so be sure to check it out. I also cut Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green panels with the smallest stitched heart die for accents. I cut a Basic White panel with the third smallest Layering Circles die and embossed it with the Ornate Floral embossing folder. And I cut the Love You from the Love You More Than dies from Real Red card stock.
I adhered the words on the scalloped rectangle die cut with small dots of liquid glue along with the embossed circle. I adhered the scalloped circle over the embossed circle with dimensionals and centered the large stitched heart in the center. I adhered the small stitched hearts over the sentiment and adhered the scalloped rectangle to the card front with liquid glue.
I was going to stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings stamp set on the inside of the note card, but I dropped the inked stamp, messing up the inside. So I stamped the sentiment on a Basic White panel in Real Red and adhered it to a Bermuda Bay mat and adhered that to the inside of the note card, covering my mess. I have to do this way to often, and I find that using a mat under your Basic White panel really helps to cover stray ink marks – plus it gives a nice frame for your writing area!
The note cards are the perfect size for Valentines, and there are so many stamp and die sets that you can pull elements from for making a card for your sweeties if you don’t have a dedicated Valentine’s Day set. The Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings stamp set has the perfect sentiment (in addition to the fabulous gumball machine) and it even has some small sentiments that go with the holiday. So get creative and finish up your Valentines because everyone can use a little love note!
