The of the great things that Stampin’ Up!® now does is to add dies to a set that do something different than just cut out an image. Yes, of course, they cut out the images in the matching stamp set but they have also been including dies that do something different.
I made this card using the stamp set called Meant To Be from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. This stamp set is perfect for Valentine’s Day. It also has a set of matching dies called Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies. The fun thing is they also added some special dies to this set. If you look at my card you will see the stitched scalloped edges on both sides of the All My Love Designer Series Paper. That was done by a die in this set. The other special thing is the heart itself was cut out using two separate dies. One cut the stitching around the heart and the other cut the heart out. Actually, there is a second thing that die does. It cuts the heart and cut a stitched scallop around the heart. I used it in this card (bottom right in Whisper White). Isn’t that fun?!
The colors I used for this card are Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White. I popped up the heart with Dimensionals and used a piece of 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in Lovely Lipstick.

There are so many sweet little touches on this card that make it extra special – the stitching on the border and heart, the scalloped edges, the colors. Such a pretty card, Susan – and it makes me happy!
Such a pretty, happy card! I love the background, and all the stitched details.
