I used a few of the pieces from Stampin’ Up!’s valentine promotional items along with the Vivid Vases and On Film Framelits Dies to create my card today. The Whole Lot of Love valentine promotional items are only available for a few more days (through Feb 14) so be sure to get yours before they’re gone! You can see all of the valentine items here in my online store.
My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #122.
I started by embossing a panel of Pool Party card stock with the Arrows Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Real Red panel, then to a Crisp Cantaloupe card base with SNAIL. I cut the back off one of the cards from the pack of Sweet Sayings Card and Envelopes and I adhered it to a panel of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the image from the Vivid Vases stamp (wood only) in StazOn Jet Black Ink on the front of a card from the Sweet Sayings Card and Envelope pack and colored the flowers with my Stampin’ Write Markers. Then I cut the image out with the On Film Framelits Die and taped it on the back side in an On Film Framelits die cut from Real Red card stock.
I stamped the Vivid Vases image again on the leftover panel from the back of the Sweet Sayings Card and on the little banners from the Sweetheart Treat Bags, cut them out with my Paper Snips and adhered them with SNAIL to the stamped panel. Then I adhered the Framelits die cut to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered a strip of the Sweet Sayings Card to a Whisper White panel to finish the inside of the card.
