Mornin’, y’all. Hope you made it thru Friday and are into a nice weekend!
Appreciate all the well-wishes yesterday – it’s nice having so many folks who care about my well-being! And glad so many of you snapped up the free shipping! 🙂
My card today is a quick and easy Valentine’s card – or just a little card to send to someone you love! It’s got hearts – thanks to the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the Sure Do Love You bundle. And pretty pretty Painted With Love DSP! Take a look-see:
The elements and the layout are from this week’s Fusion challenge.
And the sweet color scheme is from the FabFriday challenge!
I started with a panel of Whisper White card stock and brought the horizontal and vertical elements from the sketch photo into it with the new Simple Stripes TIEF. I embossed the panel once horizontally, then I flipped the card stock over (so I was debossing) and ran it back thru, this time with the embossed stripes running vertically. Notice I only did that on the left third-or-so of the panel. Then I Fast Fuse’d it to a Powder Pink mat.
I cut some heart frames with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits. The two larger frames are from some Melon Mambo and Powder Pink design papers in the Painted With Love Specialty DSP. I cut the larger hearts and then used the framelit that was two sizes smaller to cut the middle and create the frame. The smallest heart is cut from a piece of Sweet Sugarplum card stock. For that one, I also cut a second heart (without cutting out the middle) from a solid Gold part of the Painted With Love Specialty DSP paper – then I adhered the two together with Liquid Glue.
I adhered the two larger hearts to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the small heart on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut two Whisper White leaf shapes with the dies in the Lots to Love Box Framelits and adhered them to the small heart. Then I tied a small bow with some Powder Pink Mini Tinsel Trim and stuck it on with a Glue Dot.
For the sentiment from the Sure Do Love You stamp set, I stamped it in Melon Mambo on Whisper White and cut each word. I used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the card front. A Gold Metallic Enamel Shape finished off the card front.
On the inside, I simply added one of the conversation hearts from Sure Do Love You in Melon Mambo to the center of a Whisper White panel.
I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two conversation hearts from Sure Do Love You in Melon Mambo on the front…
…and I added more of the Painted With Love Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
Simple and easy, huh? Quick little heart frames and some sweet sentiments from the Sure Do Love You stamp set! Hope you like! 🙂
