I saw a fabulous little Valentine made by Jen Shults using Washi Tape to make a tic-tac-toe board. You can see Jen’s card by clicking here. Since I loved the design, I created a very similar card using Stampin’ Up! products to share with you today. This card was really quick and fun to make!
The colors for my card were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments #177.
I started by adhering some of the Retro Fresh Designer Washi Tape in a tic-tac-toe board outline on a Whisper White panel. I did have to play around a little with the tape to get it centered correctly, good thing that the Washi Tape is repositionable!!
Then I stamped the five little hearts from the Language of Love stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Strawberry Slush ink on a Strawberry Slush panel and I punched them out with the matching Small Heart Punch. I adhered them to the Whisper White panel with SNAIL.
Then I inked up part of the sentiment from the Geometrical stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Wisteria Wonder ink and I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment in the empty boxes on the grid. I adhered the stamped panel to a Coastal Cabana panel with SNAIL then I wrapped a strand of Natural Linen Thread around the panel and adhered it on the back with tape.
I colored the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) with my Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped it on a Whisper White panel, cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Die and adhered it to a Wisteria Wonder Bitty Banners die cut with SNAIL. I tied a bow through a Basic Metal Button with Natural Linen Thread and adhered it to the end of the sentiment with a Glue Dot. Then adhered the layered sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished the card by adhering the layered panel to a Strawberry Slush card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I finished the inside of the card by stamping the little heart border from the Language of Love stamp set in Strawberry Slush ink on a Whisper White panel. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig again to help place the images.
