It’s time for the IRBH Blog Hop! I always look forward to hopping with this amazing group of stampers. The theme for this month’s hop is Love. I made a simple Valentine’s card using products from both the Occasions and Annual catalogs. My card was inspired by the GDP sketch challenge for this week:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″

Stamped with the Forever Lovely stamp set:

  • sentiment in Melon Mambo ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Needlepoint Elements Framelits:

  • sentiment

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • large oval from a piece of Melon Mambo DSP

Assembled the Valentine card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • oval die cut glued onto the Flirty Flamingo DSP layer
  • 3 pieces of twine stretched across the DSP layer and adhered on the back using Tear & Tape
  • 3 pieces of twine tied around the first three pieces and tied in a bow – I secured the bow to the DSP layer with a Mini Glue Dot
  • sentiment adhered over the twine using Tear & Tape – I also put a piece of Tear & Tape between the twine and DSP to hold it in place
  • Flirty Flamingo DSP glued onto the front of the card base
  • three Coastal Cabana dots applied to the card front
