Bloggers’ Challenge 138 – Valentines!

It's Valentine's weekend and what is more appropriate than the Friday Bloggers' Challenge to be a Valentine theme, too!

My Technique Class made this card last week in Class.  They loved it!


I used Stampin' Up!'s With All My Heart stamp set for this card.  I love that the larger image fits in the new XL Fancy Flower punch perfectly!  I stamped it in Real Red on Whisper White, then punched it.  I adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals to a tag made with the Tag Corner Punch.  In the center, I punched the Small Heart from Faux Diamond Dust technique Pretty in Pink cardstock…it sparkles so pretty!  The tag is tied on with Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon around the Pretty in Pink base card.


The background I made using strips of the Sending Love Designer Paper.  it is called the Herringbone Technique.  I learned how to make it from Technique Junkies Newsletter.  I added a row of the Scallop Trim Border from Whisper White.  Then I stamped Friend and trimmed it with my Paper Snips, added it to the front of the tag.


I'm very happy with how it turned out!


I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
