Happy Happy Hawwmp day, y’all! We’re having a Spring-snap, which makes me want to plant seeds and be in the garden! We’re planning a new perennial (asparagus and strawberries) bed so we’ve got to get started on that sooner than later. And the weather outside is not-at-all frightful, in fact it’s just delightful! So…perhaps we’ll make some headway on that today!
My card for today is a pretty little number from the Always in My Heart and Lots of Heart Bundles. It’s a perfect anniversary card! Take a look-see:
The layout and some of the elements of this card were inspired by the challenge over at Inspired By.
And the color palette is from the TGIF Challenge this week.
And all of it came together perfectly to work for The Paper Players theme challenge!
I started with some Smoky Slate paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP and matted it on Petal Pink cardstock for the card front.
Using Stampin Seal, I adhered some Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon in three loops.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Vellum Square Doily (I turned it up so it was a diamond, not a square!).
Using the large die in the Many Hearts Dies set, I cut a large white heart and adhered it over the top of the ribbon with Liquid Glue.
Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the plaid heart from Lots of Heart in Real Red on a piece of Smoky Slate – then I cut it out with another die in the Many Hearts Dies.
I adhered the plaid heart with Liquid Glue.
Using the large die in the Floral Heart Dies, I cut a Basic White heart. I set the outer floral cut aside for another card and popped the center heart cut-out onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the Always in My Heart sentiment in Real Red. Then I cut it with the cool banner die in the Floral Heart Die set. I folded the ends using the score lines that the die put in for me and then used Liquid Glue on the ends to adhere it. I added a single Stampin’ Dimensional under the middle of the banner to support it over the other heart.
I added some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels and the card front was done.
On the inside, I added a second Always in My Heart sentiment in Real Red to a Basic White panel. Up the left side, I added the line of hearts using a sweet little image from Always in My Heart. I stamped it first in Petal Pink and then a second time in Smoky Slate.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Always in My Heart hearts up the front of the left side…
…and more of the Smoky Slate Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! These two bundles – Always in My Heart with the Floral Heart Dies and the Lots of Heart with the Many Hearts Dies – are a perfect complement to each other, don’t you think? Anniversary, Valentine’s, I-love-you-cuz-it’s-Wednesday. Make them all!
I hope you like!
