Stampin' Up Always In My Heart Be My Valentine Card

Welcome to another month of the Inkin' Krew's Blog Hop!  This month all the artists are celebrating "Love."  I decided to get a start on my Valentine's Day cards with this challenge.  I am using the Paper Players weekly challenge for inspiration as well as the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge for inspiration.  

Clean and simple white cards are one of my favorites when I see them, however, they are not something I ever think to create.  Therefore, today's card is truly outside my wheelhouse.  

To begin, I dry embossed 2 pieces of Basic White card stock with Stampin' Up Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder with my Stampin' Up Mini Cut N Emboss Machine.  (see below for your chance to win your own machine.)

I adhered the embossed pieces to coordinating Calypso Coral card stock.  

I die cut pieces of Just Jade, Calypso Coral and Pale Papaya with Stampin' Up Floral Hearts Dies.  I layered Stampin' Up Adhesive Sheets with the Calpyso Coral so it was easy to layer the flowers.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Always In My Heart Stamp Set with Calypso Coral ink on the Pale Papaya flag.  

I adhered the embossed panels to a Thick Basic White card base folded in tent fashion.  I adhered the floral heart die cut to the front with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  I adhered the flowers to the floral heart with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive as well as Stampin' Dimensionals.  The banner was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The inside is a panel of Basic White with the sentiment with Calypso Coral ink.  The heart border was stamped with Pale Papaya ink.  I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral panel. 

Thank you so much for hopping on today!  Don't forget to check out Jillian Good who is up next.
