I chose the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Wishes stamp set today for my share for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop. Since Valentine’s Day is coming very soon, I decided I needed to get busy…
Here is the sketch used for today’s challenge:
If you are in need of a quick and easy card, this one fills the bill. For the background, I layered a panel of Love Blossoms DSP onto a little larger panel of Garden Green, then attached that to the Blushing Bride card base with multipurpose liquid glue.
The sentiment, from Stampin’ Up! Friendly Wishes, was stamped in Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, and Rose Red onto a panel of Whisper White using my Stamp-a-ma-jig. Boy is that a life saver! I framed the sentiment panel with a panel of Rose Red using Multipurpose Liquid glue to attach them, then popped it onto the base with Dimensionals.
The banner, from the new Bloomin’ Love stamp set, was stamped in Garden Green, and cut out using the banner die from the wonderful new Large Numbers Framelits Dies. In case you did not realize it, this can be bundled with the Number of Years stamp set for a great $avings deal and will earn you Free items from the Sale-a-Bration sale going on right now at Stampin’ Up! I stamped Be Mine, also from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, in Rose Red ink. I decided I needed a little bling, so I punched out a small heart of Blushing Bride glimmer paper using my Itty Bitty heart Accents punch. It and the banner are popped onto the front with Dimensionals.
For the inside, I chose another sentiment from Bloomin’ Love, which I stamped in Rose Red onto a panel of Whisper White, then I added two more hearts and a bottom border with a left over strip of the DSP I used on the front.
And here is a look at the decorated envelope and one of the inside flap of the envelope:
