Seasonal Sayings Valentine

I love this greeting in Seasonal Sayings from the Holiday Mini (yes!  It is still available as a carryover in the Spring Mini!)  My card today fits two challenges over on Splitcoaststampers, the Clean & Simple Love is in the Air Challenge (CAS207) and Technique Lovers Challenge (TLC416) for Dry Embossing & Sanding Designer Paper. 



And, this really is simple!

  1. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White, folded in half to make base card.
  2. Cut the red Polka Dot pattern from Summer Smooches Designer Paper to 4 3/4 x 3 1/2, run thru the Big Shot with the Honeycomb folder to emboss.
  3. Sand the raised portion of the Honeycomb embossing, add to the front of the base card.
  4. I stamped the Love You twice, once in Real Red and once in Basic Black.  I used the 3/8" Circle Punch (Itty Bitty Punches) to punch out the heart in the O on the Basic Black one.
  5. I cut the Love You with the Apothecary Accents Framelit and then another one from Basic Black.
  6. The Basic Black accent is adhered to the center of the front, then I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the Whisper White Love You one over top and added the Black Heart Circle on top of the greeting with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  7. Finally, I added the trio of small Pearls above and below the greeting on the Basic Black accent.

Clean & Simple…and a wow technique for your class!  I love it!
