Happy Valentine’s Day!

Woohoo!  I did have good news when I got home yesterday.  One of my Love You Much cards (posted HERE) made it to Stampers Showcase!  Stampers Showcase is on the demonstrator side of Stampin’ Up!’s website and a wonderful resource for demos to find cards they can use in their workshops.  This card was one that I made for the Control Freaks swap.  

I didn’t get many Valentine cards made to send out this year, although I did send a few.  The prototype for this card was a Shoebox Swap that I made for an upline meeting in December.  I still have a lot of Georgia Peach left from an earlier class I did, so I decided to use up some of the checked designer paper.  I love the colors in this paper and thought they’d make a great Valentine’s card!

I started with a base of So Saffron and added a strip of the stripe DSP inside along the bottom.  Then I used a layer of Regal Rose on the front and a strip of the checked DSP on the front.  I stamped Love You Much in Regal Rose on Whisper White and added a Saffron mini brad in the center of the flower and layered it onto So Saffron.  I stamped the hearts with Regal Rose on Pretty in Pink and punched with the Heart to Heart punch…the small one went in the center of the O.  I added a strip of Old Olive and pierced a row of holes down the center leading to the other punched hearts on the right.

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!  I had an awesome time visiting my friends and teaching a couple classes over the past couple days.  Wish I got to see them more.
