CCJC1 – Valentine Cards


Every Saturday on the  Create with Connie & Julie site we issue a challenge. Our subscribers are encouraged to enter the challenge to win fabulous prizes! This weeks challenge was to create a Valentine's Day Card.

The new Occasions Mini Catalog has a fabulous new Valentines set, I (Heart) Hearts. I used this new stamp set along with the new Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die to create my card!  The colors remind me of the Conversation Heart candy available in the stores now!

I started with a base of Melon Mambo Cardstock.  The next layer is Regal Rose, that I stamped with the I (Love) Love Jumbo Wheel all over the background.  I cut out 4 Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit diecuts in So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink and Lavender Lace.  On top, I cut the Timeless Type Bigz Alphabet die letters in LOVE out of Whisper White cardstock.  Those are placed on a couple strips of Whisper White in the background.  I wrapped Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon around the card and added the Stylized Silver Designer Label hardware.  Inside I stamped Love You Much from Well Scripted stamp set in Melon Mambo on Whisper White and punched it out with the Designer Label punch to fit inside the hardware.

I added a Pretty in Pink Corduroy Button in the hardware hole on the right side, then added a couple hearts stamped with I (Heart) Hearts and punched with the Heart to Heart punch!  I think it is a FUN card!

Welcome back Connie!  Love all your V-Day cards of course:)  The 4 scallop hearts with the dot embossing reminds me not of the conversation candy hearts but the other candy from back in the day (can't think of the name of them), maybe razzmataz?  Remember….little round pastel candys with little dot embossing on each one?  Love them & your card:)
