Happy Valentine’s Day ~ Cards

Went through my stash of old cards and found this bit of artwork to up-cycle on a Valentine card for Old Roady. I didn’t want fru-fru pink hearts or lace so stuck with browns and a muted maroon. I used a Cuttlebug die for the corners and Spellbinders Label Four die (S4-190) for the artwork.

This next card is more traditional. Screaming Valentine’s Day! The red glitter paper is from Stampin’ Up. (I think it was introduced in the Holiday mini catalog.) I cut out the hearts with my Sizzix dies. The smallest heart is stamped with a PSX stamp. (I understand they are no longer in business and the secondary market has some outrageous prices for their rare, collectible designs.) I stamped the image with VersaMark clear ink and embossed with red embossing powder. MS punch along the bottom is Doily Lace. The embossed background is done with the Craft Concepts Cottage Floral embossing folder.

Stampin’ Up You Are Loved Stamp Set

I love how stamping with VersaMark ink can jazz up a plain background. That’s what we did at Stamp Camp on the pear card stock. Then it’s easy as layering three hearts, each just a little bit different. The largest heart is embossed. The middle heart is cut from a shimmery silver paper. The smallest heart is stamped with VersaMark then white embossing powder applied and heated. Add some pearls and a ribbon to complete this pretty Valentine card.
