I’m participating in somewhat of a swap with some Stampin’ Friends. We were given the name of an individual, and we are to create a Valentine type card to send them. Here is my creation below. I didn’t want it to be “too lovey dovey”, but I did want it to represent Valentine’s Day.
And guess what? “Again” this is a “no stamping” card. How did I do that again, lol. I love, love, love this beautiful Petal Garden Designer Series Paper. The 6″ X 6″ paper stacks have the perfect sized images for a handmade card. Yummy!
The Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon I used is a FREEBIE from the 2018 Sale-A-Bration Catalog. I love how perfect it matches! Just “one” of the many things I love about using Stampn’ Up Product. And what’s even better, is it is free.
To create some lift and dimension, I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, and ran it through the Big Shot twice on Thick Whisper White cardstock. Adhered both pieces together to give it some tooth. I then used the edge piece of the Stampn’ Dimensionals and cut a long thin strip, cut it up in pieces and strategically placed it behind the sentiment. I added a few pearls and I called it done!
Here are the details for this fun card:
Thick Whisper White cardstock – 8 1/2″ X 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, a few scraps for the sentiment
Petal Garden Designer Series Paper – 2″ X 5 1/4″ for the top layer, and 2 1/4″ X 5 1/4″ for the bottom layer
Shimmer Ribbon Combo Pack – The Calypso Coral one
Thank you for stopping by today, and I hope I have motivated you to go create something beautiful. A handmade card is a like a “hug with a fold in the middle”.
