Quick and Easy Valentine cards!

Quick and Easy Valentine cards!

I have several Quick and Easy Valentine cards created using new products from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog!  You can view the new Occasions Catalog by clicking the link in the right side bar. Be sure to leave me a comment below on which is your favorite and I’ll randomly select one to receive their favorite card All of these cards use products from the “Sending Love” suite (pgs 14-15 of Occasions catalog): Sealed with Love Bundle #144705 $45.75 includes the following at a 10% savings: Sealed with Love stamp set (#142815 $21) Love Notes Framelits Dies (#142752 $30) Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack #142733 $10 I had planned on using Basic Black and Real Red but didn’t have any black ribbon so Smoky Slate won out   I really like this color combination as it’s a little unexpected for Valentine cards.  I had some scrap pattern paper left over so I cut out 3 of the images and matched them to the pattern with Dimensionals.  I think this card would be really sweet for just about anyone – Valentine cards are not just for your sweetheart! This card is a little different in that the base is Basic Black that measures 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4.  The Whisper White measures 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ folded and is layer to the Basic Black.  These little envelopes are super cute and a fun embellishment for our cards.  The framelit that die-cuts the hearts note also die-cut the “LOVE NOTE” one This may be the quickest and easiest of the Valentine cards shown today but it still has a lot of fund little details.  The stitching is created with the new Stitched Framelits and a little bit of sparkle is easily added with a thin strip of the Silver Glimmer Paper. I think this Valentine card has a bit of a “tuxedo” feel to it and is masculine enough to give to your husband – will definitely be going to mine 😉  I opted for a clean and simple look and resisted the urge to “bling” it up. Sale-a-bration is also going on now and you can earn a free Sale-a-bration item for every $50 in product.  View the details at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/brendakeenan/promotions or click the link in the right side bar to view the Sale-a-bration brochures now!

Occasions catalog and will be inspired to create some of your own for family and...
