I loved making this card. It makes MY heart flutter with all it's yumminess. The overall design is a case of a cute card I spotted in a magazine, but nearly all the products used are brand new from the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog.
Isn't the yellow and coral color scheme cheerful? This could certainly be a Valentine card in non-traditional colors, or it could be for a variety of other occasions such as a baby card, thinking of you, or maybe even a Mother's Day card.
A few details:
- After embossing Crumb Cake card stock with the Chevron embossing folder, I hit it with a white craft ink pad* in a sort of messy fashion - splotchy and imperfect - which is perfect!
- The paper doily got a healthy shot of Gold Glow Smooch Spritz, which is gorgeous on this project. Be sure to protect your work area when spritzing.
- The three little hearts are created using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack flower and snipping off two of the petals.
- The little "love" image is from the Ciao, Baby! stamp set which coordinates with the new Petite Curly Label Punch, available for FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying purchase!
Coming Tomorrow: Cute card samples from our shoebox swap in Orlando. A few of them include some neat tricks and cool folds!
