This past weekend I had some fun in the craft room! Patrick and I have been busy working on a project for a basketball team awards event, making birthday cards for friends and family, and making Valentine cards for my students and our family and friends. Yes . . . we’ve been busy and are still working on some handcrafted cards.
Another card I made for Valentine’s Day used some retired designer series paper. When I craft, there are always some scraps that are too big to throw away. It is from these scraps that a beautiful card is created.
I was able to pull the a variety of designer series paper scraps to coordinate this beautiful Valentine’s Day card. After embossing the card with hearts, I cut a heart out of the top panel with the heart framelits. Then I pulled a piece of scrap card stock and cut it 3 1/2 X 3 1/2. On this scrap piece I layered 1/4 inch strips of retired designer series paper. When mounting the heart cut top panel over the quilted design, I used dimensionals for some added texture and focus. Then I adhered this panel to the card base. I added a sentiment to the upper left hand corner and attached this with dimensionals. I finished off this card with some red bakers twine and a heart clip I had on hand.
I love how this card turned out. I even stamped a heart on the envelope to coordinate this design. Try this design with other shapes to cut out and “quilt”. These is such an easy card, looks hard, and is absolutely beautiful! Such a fun, super cute Valentine’s card.
Thanks for stopping by today and giving me the opportunity to inspire you to create your next project. Let me know if you need something or have questions. I’m always happy to help!
Happy Stamping! Annette
