And my card, using the products we featured during Week 1…PS I Love You, Take it to Heart, and Candy Conversations. I decided to use my favorite…PS I Love You…in soft, non-traditional Valentine colors!
I started with a base of Lucky Limeade and added on Wisteria Wonder cardstock. I cut the rectangle of Whisper White at 2 3/8" wide, then used my 2 1/2 Circle Punch to curve the top. I stamped the greeting from PS I Love You in Basic Black along the bottom. I also stamped the cupid on scrap Whisper White in Basic Black, along with the two hearts…one in Wisteria Wonder and the other in Lucky Limeade. I punched with the Full Heart punch. I layered the two hearts on the Scallop Heart Embosslits from Pool Party cardstock. I also added a strip of Pinking Hearts Border Punch from Pool Party along the bottom.
I layered some Sweet Shop Designer Paper across the Wisteria Wonder cardstock, then wrapped the Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon around to the back and secured. I placed the Hearts on top of the Whisper White with Stampin' Dimensions, then added the Cupid with another Dimensional. Finally I added a white flower designer button tied with Wisteria Wonder Bakers Twine! I'm so happy they came out with more colors in the Bakers Twine!!!
