Nothing says love like a handmade Valentine card. This Mini Valentine Card is made in a snap using the Sure Do Love You Bundle and the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). Both are coming tomorrow (January 3) when the 2018 Occasions Catalog goes live.
Clean And Simple
Tiny Package – Big Heart
Good things come in tiny packages. Especially when they are made by hand with love. This little 3″x3″ card is no exception. The Melon Mambo cardstock base was made using paper from the Painted With Love 12″x12″ Cardstock Pack. The colors in this coordinating cardstock pack (Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Powder Pink) are beautiful and pair perfectly with the Painted With Love DSP. The pack contains 24 sheets of paper: 8 each of the three colors.
Specialty DSP Beyond Compare
The Painted With Love Speciality DSP is without a doubt my favorite DSP in the 2018 Occasions Catalog. It is thick, gorgeous, gold foil-embossed yumminess. The painted designs on one side coupled with the gold-embossed images on the other side make this paper beyond compare. Don’t miss out on this one. When you see it in person and feel the weight and texture you will be smitten. Just a tiny square of this combined with a snippet of a paper ribbon makes this card a pocket-sized work of art. Just look at how the gold hearts shine on the paper ribbon!
The paper designs will work all year long, across multiple uses and occasions. It coordinates beautifully with a range of colors from bright and warm to soft and neutral. Just an incredible specialty DSP.
Sure Do Love You A Bundle
The distressed heart on the front of the card was stamped and die-cut using the Sure Do Love You Bundle. The coordinated contents of this bundle include the Sure Do Love You stamp set and the Lots To Love Box Framelits dies. The stamp set contains 9 love-themed stamps including a wonderful banner and heart with distressed finishes. The die set contains 10 framelits including a 4 7/8″x3″x5/8″ gift box die and a fantastic banner (that coordinates with the banner stamp). Check back for a cute Gift box made using these dies. The Sure Do Love You Bundle is available in wood- or clear-mount stamp options and you save 10% when you buy it.
The sentiment on the heart was stamped using Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Craft Ink. Combined with Melon Mambo Classic Stampin’ ink used to stamp the heart, it created a lovely pink. Not my intent but a happy accident.
