Simple Cardmaking - Valentine Card

If you are a busy paper crafter or if you prefer clean and simple card designs, today's card may be right up your alley.

And here's a surprise: No Stamping!



This card uses the new Love Impressions rub-ons (featured in the 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog) in place of a stamped sentiment. Of course, you can always stamp your little heart out on the inside of the card.  (Pun intended) Hee!

Even though this is a simple card, it was still fun to create. I saw several versions of this heart out in blog land and started with that basic idea. Punch a heart (full heart punch) from Real Red card stock. Punch out lots (and lots) of the flower shape from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack. Gently bend the flower petals and glue each flower to the full heart. I started at the bottom point and continued around the edges, filling in the center last. The white heart "mat" I attached it to was created with the Big Shot and the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit.

The tiny scallop border peeking out from under the Basic Gray card stock, was created with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.

Sweet. Clean. And simple.

Those rub-ons are too stinkin' cute. I love the little hot air balloons - I'm working on a card using those right now. Can't wait to show you! 

Got Valentines? Only 18 days until Valentine's Day ...
