CCMC236 – Hearts a Flutter

It's Thursday and time for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge!  We have a beautiful color challenge for you today…perfect for Valentine's, so that is what I did!  We are in the middle of Week 1 for the Spring Edition 2013 and our designers are showing off LOTS of fun projects!  Why don't you join us?  At a price of $34.95 US for over 30 step-by-step tutorials…that's just a little over $1 each!  We are featuring products in the Spring Mini and Sale-A-Bration brochures!  Our website stays up over a year, so you can refer back to them 24/7!




Here's my card using the color challenge this week.  Love that Hearts a Flutter bundle…stamps and framelits!  There are some subtle details on this card, so you need to look close!



Here are the details!

  1. The base card is 4 1/4 x 11 of Raspberry Ripple, folded in half.
  2. The Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 layer has been partially embossed with the Chevron Folder, I left a top portion un-embossed for the greeting.
  3. Be My Valentine from Delightful Dozen was stamped in Lucky Limeade and I added a Small Heart Punch of Raspberry Ripple with a rhinestone jewel.
  4. I stamped a 1 x 4 strip of Lucky Limeade with Lucky Limeade ink, using the pennant shape in the Hearts a Flutter stamp set…I liked how it gave me a striped pattern without using DSP!
  5. The small hearts were stamped in Pink Pirouette and Raspberry Ripple, cut with the heart framelit, then scattered along the Lucky Limeade strip.  I popped up a couple of them with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. Finally, I tucked the larger scallop heart stamped with Raspberry Ripple and cut with the framelit, added a smaller solid heart inside and added another rhinestone jewel.  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, too!


Made for a sweet little Valentine card!

Cute card!  I think with the green in there it would be the perfect "manly" Valentine.

Such a beautiful and wonderfully clean Valentine's card!

I like how you only partially embossed the chevron so you could stamp the sentiment at the top. A beauty!
