I know Valentine’s Day is over but I wanted to show that you can use Valentine stamp sets for other occasions too. This particular card could also be used as a birthday or thank you card as well as a Valentine. Wouldn’t it make a perfect card for one of my granddaughters?
I used a lot of the products from the Sweet Talk Suite which is in the Stampin’ Up!® January – June Mini Catalog to make this card. This suite includes the stamp set called Sweet Conversations and the coordinating dies are called Sweetheart Dies. If you buy them in a bundle you can save 10%. Also included in this suite is the Gingham Embossing Folder, boxes, ribbon, embellishments and Designer Series Paper. Do you remember those hard heart candies that would have words on them? Some companies called them Sweethearts and other called them Conversation Hearts, which is why Stampin’ Up!® used both names in this bundle. I don’t know if they still make these candies but I would assume they still do. They were really popular when I was a kid many moons ago.
To make this card I first ran a Blushing Bride card base through my Cut & Emboss machine using the new Gingham Embossing Folder. Then I cut out a piece of Highland Heather card stock using the Stitched So Sweetly die set. I layered a piece of the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper on top of that and adhered both to the card base. Next I stamped the sentiment heart and cut that out using the Sweetheart dies. I cut an additional Highland Heather Heart and the Blushing Bride tag. I added the bow using the Baker’s Twine Essentials pack and adhered all of that to the card using Dimensionals.
On a side note, I want to wish Rob, my husband a very happy birthday. He is the best and I hope he has a wonderful birthday! I love you!
This is a beautiful card, and, yes, it would make a lucky little girl and perfect birthday card. (And the saying works for all of your grands!)
