My card today uses Take it to Heart set. I love that it is adaptable to Anniversary cards, just saying I love you cards…all types of occasions…not just Valentine's Day!
This card came together from pieces of paper that I had already on my table…love that! Stampin' Up!'s Take it to Heart image was already stamped with Basic Black on Whisper White, then cut with the Heart Framelit Die. The background heart Sweet Shop Designer Paper was already cut into this piece, I just added the Basic Black cardstock mat around it. I already had the sliver of Red Glimmer Paper…I like how the Calypso Coral color pulls out the lighter shades in the Red Glimmer Paper…I just notched the ends and placed it on the front. I even had the little flower already made from Calypso Coral and Whisper White cardstock, punched with the BoHo Flower Punch and a little pearl inside. The only thing I did "make" today was the Whisper White background that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder. I also stamped the greeting from Stampin' Up!'s PS I Love You stamp set. Everything was placed on the base card of Calypso Coral…also left over from another project! Love it when I can use up my "starts" off the table! lol!
Have a great week…and don't forget to check out our NEW Guest Designer over on Create with Connie and Mary! We're so happy to have her on board this session!
