SHC - Lots of Love

.... Morning! It's time for my Seven Hills Craft blog post. This week I have a Valentine's Day card to share with you. I completely forgot all about Valentine's Day, so last Monday, while Jonathan was busy working downstairs I made a card for him:


Stamps: C&9 - Big On You, Say Thanks Turnabout
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: C&9 - Big On You, Say Thanks; Stitched Hearts Card Front Die
Accessories: White Card; SU Card - Bermuda Bay, Mint Macron, So Saffron; Clear Embossing Powder; Nuvo - Clear Aquashimmer Brush

I'm submitting this card to The Paper Players - PP#578 where they have a colour challenge. Also to Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies - HLSAGD#02, and to Cardz 4 Guyz - C4G#289 where the theme is love cards.


I made an A2 note card from dark aqua cardstock. I used the stitched hearts die to make pretty stitched hearts on pale aqua card. I trimmed the panel to size and adhered it to the note card. I stamped a bold 'love you' greeting in black on soft yellow card, heat embossed with clear powder and used the matching die to cut it out. I also cut out a large white speech bubble which I added to the card with dimensional tape. I adhered the 'love you' sentiment on top along with a smaller speech bubble and a tiny heart. I finished the front by adding lots of clear shimmer to the hearts. Inside the card, I cut a piece of white card small than the base. I stamped a small greeting and added another speech bubble and heart.


For a change you can actually see the shimmer in the hearts! I'm so pleased how this card turned out - it wasn't planned. I just happened to have the various stamp sets on my desk and realised I could make super Valentine card - clean, simple and fun.

Thanks for stopping by. That's all from me today. See you soon.

Super card, isn't it funny how a card can come together so quickly when you hadn't planned it? It couldn't better!
Sorry to not have been around I've been remiss of lots of things these last few weeks.
