SC421 Hearts a Flutter

Had a little time to play along with the Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge today, although it took more time than I wanted it to!  I just wasn't happy with how it was turning out.  But…I think I worked out some of the "glitches" I was having!

 

 

As you can see, the sketch had a lot going on!  And here is what I came up with.

 

 

I wanted to show that you can use the Hearts A Flutter stamp set and framelits for more than just Valentines or love cards!  I think this one is neutral enough to be a birthday card, don't you?  Here are the details:

  1. 4 1/4 x 11 Pool Party cardstock, folded in half to make base card.
  2. 2 x 5 1/2 piece of More Amore Designer Paper layered on 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 of Basic Gray cardstock.
  3. I stamped the banners in Hearts a Flutter in Raspberry Ripple and Basic Gray, then cut them out with the Framelits along with the solid Primrose Petals cardstock one.
  4. I pierced holes in the corners of the tags so I could feed thru the Linen Thread, then tied knots on the ends.  I added them to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. I added one of the Flower Trim roses to the solid banner with a Pearl in the center.
  6. Under the greeting I added the new Basic Gray Ribbon, cut with a flag end on one side.
  7. Finally, I stamped the greeting from the FREE Sale-A-Bration set, Vintage Verses in Black Stazon on Very Vanilla, then cut it with the Label Framelits.  I also sponged around the edges with Raspberry Ripple ink.  It's popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals, too.
  8. I discarded using a trio of anything under the greeting even though the sketch called for it.  Just made it too busy.

 

Hope you like it!  You can order all the supplies in my online store!
