Valentine's Card for Stamping with Friends Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stamping with Friends Blog Hop. This is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who share our love of card making with you through blog hops. Our theme for this blog hop is Valentine's Day Cards.

The card I'm sharing with you today is one my customers will be making this coming up week at my in-person classes. This is a link below all the pictures of a free download with all the measurements and instructions.

I started with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Merry Merlot card base folded in half with 1" cut off the right front side. The designer series paper I used on this card is from the Symbols of Fortune pack.

The picture below shows this detail better.

The designer series paper was embossed with one of the embossing folders from the Dotty Hearts set.

I adhered a Basic White 4" x 5 1/4" piece to the inside then adhered a 1" x 5 1/4" piece of designer series paper to the right side of it. My sentiment is from a retired set, Sure Do Love You, but you could use any Valentine's Day saying you have.

The hearts were punched with the Heart Punch pack. I used Merry Merlot for the base and this heart was punched from our new Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper. I embossed it with the Bouquet of Love Embossing Folder.

The other heart was punched from Gold Metallic Specialty paper. I love this paper! In the pack are 4 sheets of this brushed gold and 4 sheets of a gorgeous rose gold paper. I embossed it with the other embossing folder from the Dotty Hearts set.

I stamped my sentiment on vellum with VersaMark and heated embossed it with gold embossing powder. This is another retired stamp from the Heart to Heart set, but any sentiment will work.

I hope you are inspired by my card and will give it a try. To continue along the hop, click on the image below to see the great project our next demonstrator has made to awe you. I know you will love it.
