Heart to Heart Valentine’s
Today I am sharing a trio of cards that feature the Heart to Heart stamp set and the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. The DSP happens to be my featured product for this month’s Customer Appreciation – Card Candy Challenge. You can learn more about the challenge and see what my stamping friends are submitting as there creations on From My Heart Card Candy Page.
These cards are really Designer Series Paper plus sentiments. I would classify them as EASY or BEGINNER cards. Which means, you can do them too. I will share with you all three designs below. So if you enjoy them, you could certainly CASE their templates with other DSP patterns. CASE mean Copy And Selectively Edit. Remember, when you are crafting your own cards… “It’s your card, make it your way!”
Heart to Heart Valentine’s Card 1 – Happy Valentine’s Day
This first card is a panel of DSP samples, lined up and mounted on a piece of Real Red cardstock. Then I wrapped and adhered a ribbon in Flirty Flamingo (retired item) and added a second section of ribbon round the band and tied a simple knot bow. That is added to the Real Red Card base with dimensionals, and then I stamped the sentiment at the bottom in Memento black ink. To add just a bit of texture, I did start by embossing the Real Read card with the Subtle 3D folder.
Heart to Heart Valentine’s Card 2 – For You
Again, to add just a bit of texture, I did start by embossing the Flirty Flamingo card with the Subtle 3D folder. This card is simply layered samples of DSP, as sentiment and bow.
The first is 2 x 5, the second is stepped down to 2 x 4 1/2, the last is simple a square cut round the foil heart of that sheet of DSP, it measures about 2 3/8 x 2 3/8. This time, I edged each of those panels with Real Red ink, just by tapping the edges of paper to my ink pad. The first two layers are snailed direct to the Flirty Flamingo card base. The foil heart is added with dimensionals.
You can see I stamped For You and the heart with leaves stamps inside the foil heart with Real Red ink. This time with the Flirty Flamingo Ribbon, I tied a bow and added it with mini-glue dots.
Heart to Heart Valentine’s Card 3 – Our HEARTS are meant to be TOGETHER
Here I started with Whisper White card base. Added to it a layer of Real Red cardstock cut down to 5 1/4 x 4, and yes, one more time I embossed with the Subtle 3D folder. Next I die cut two Rectangular Stitched windows from the Real Red panel, and then adhered the two DSP panels to the back side. I then stamped the sentiment in Memento black ink. I wrapped and adhered the Real Red ribbon (retired) to the Real Red panel, and again added a second piece of ribbon as a simple knot bow. Snail the whole panel to the face of the card.
