With Valentine's day coming up, we are all looking to have something for that special someone. I have been busy making valentine's for my kids to share, but took some time to create a special card for my Valentine.
I love the large sentiments in the stamp set Layering Love from the annual catalog. They make a great focal point, and with little else, make it easy to pull a card together quickly. I jazzed this one up a bit with all kinds of glimmer for the special occasion. The Real Red and Emerald Envy Glitter Embossing Powder, which carried over from the holiday catalog, is simply gorgeous. It pairs beautifully with our glimmer papers. I couldn't resist using it for this valentine. Change up the colors on this card to silver, gold or all white, and it would make a striking anniversary or wedding card.
To make this card, start with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 5 1/2" for the card base. Than cut a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of Whisper White for the card front. I stamped the small heart from the Layering Love set randomly across the card front in Real Red ink. To make the large heart, I stamped the Love sentiment with Versamark onto Shimmery White cardstock, and heat embossed using the Real Red glitter embossing powder. Using the Sweet & Sassy framelits, I die cut the sentiment, than layered it onto a Real Red glimmer paper heart cut one size larger. The metallic thread is one of my favorite accessories, and I had to add some silver behind my heart. Now it was ready to be added to my card front. But first, I tied 5/8" Silver satin ribbon around the Whisper White front layer, added a silver foil doily, than adhered my heart over it using dimensionals. For good measure, a few rhinestones scattered on the front layer and a silver enamel heart by the sentiment finished it off nicely. I think know he will love it!
