SUO Challenge – Cross My Heart

Well, back to Valentine's for me.  Today we have a CAS (Clean & Simple) Valentine card challenge for you over on SUO Challenges!  Here is my card.  I love the hanging heart!



The details:

  1. The base card is Very Vanilla, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, folded in half.
  2. The Raspberry Ripple layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  The More Amore Designer Paper is 2 x 5 1/4 across the bottom.
  3. I added some Sale-A-Bration Pool Party Sycamore Street Ribbon to hide the seam.
  4. I stamped the Scallop Heart from Hearts a Flutter and cut it with the Framelits.
  5. The Primrose Petals is punched with the Full Heart Punch and a 3/4" Circle punched out of the center of it.  The Full Heart is popped up on the Scallop Heart with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. In the center of the circle is the Small Heart Punch from Red Glimmer Paper.
  7. I added a "hanger" of Pool Party Ribbon and added a bow from the same ribbon, so the heart is hanging down.
  8. Finally, I added the Cross My Heart greeting, partially tucked under the heart and stamped with Raspberry Ripple on Very Vanilla, then cut the flag end.

Another Valentine that I like.  Is it Clean & Simple?  Maybe a little over…but pretty close, I think.  Check out the rest of the Design Team over on SUO Challenges.

This is SO adorable! Any suggestions how to best secure the pool party ribbon across the seam? Do you use Snail adhesive all the way across?
Thanks 🙂  Love this combo and design!
