Happy Valentine’s Day

Pin It

I hope you all had a great day & that some of your partners remembered!  Mine didn’t, but at least he remembered my birthday this year!  This is the card I made my husband for Valentine’s day.

valentines 004 (Small)I used Basic Black, Riding Hood Red and Vellum card stock & also Riding Hood Red Designer series paper.  I had lots of fun with this card.  I stamped the triple heart image from the I{Heart}Heart Stamp Set in black on red CS & in red on vellum and cut them out using the Heart to Heart Punch.  I also used the Full Heart Punch – so much easier than cutting them out by hand!  The sentiments and the swirls are rub-ons from Laughter & Love & Chit Chat.

Making the inside was the fun part.  I used the 1-3/4” Punch to punch a black circle & then cut it into a spiral (a bit like the spirals we used to make with Minties wrappers). The outside of the spiral is attached to the bottom of the card with a glue dot, I then put a glue dot on the top of the middle of the spiral & closed the card.  When you open the card you then have a “spring” to attach all of your other hearts to & the recipient gets a nice surprise when they open the card.

Happy Stamping
