Friday was my day for card classes, I had one in the morning and one in the evening… which was lots of fun, because each class had it’s own personality and style. But the thing that is always interesting to me when I’m running my classes is to see which cards are the most popular from the group. I did 3 Valentine’s cards in the morning and then one repeat and 2 more cards in the evening. When I was planning my cards for the evening class, I decided to pick one from the morning to share as the Valentine’s Day themed card and then do two others. I picked what I thought would be the favorite, but turns out one that I DIDN’T pick was the surprise hit! So I thought I’d share here:
I think what everyone loved was how simple this card is to put together, but the gorgeous heart from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set just makes it extra pretty! I got this overall design idea from a card swap I participated in at the beginning of the year. Sadly, in the chaos of getting ready for my class, the original designers name got separated from the card sample, so if it was you, let me know!
Make it simple, and then step it up!
I did step it up a little from the original because you know me… I LOVE my Wink of Stella! I added some of the Clear Wink of Stella to my flowers in the heart. Bonus – if you have any spots where the stamp didn’t quite give you 100% coverage, the wink of stella brush helps even out the ink for you! Then I added a few small rhinestones to the center. Isn’t it pretty?!
Want to make this at home, here are the dimensions you need:
- Whisper White cardstock – 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” (cardbase), 2-1/2” x 2-1/2”
- Rose Red cardstock – 5-1/4” x 4”, 2-3/4” x 2-3/4”
- Blushing Bride cardstock – 5″ x 3-3/4″
- Love Blossoms designer paper – 1” x 5”
It’s quick easy, and oh so cute! So give it a try and let me know how it goes.
