Sealed with Love Hearts Love
V alentine card for the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour. Uses Stampin' Up! products.
Cut card stock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Whisper White Thick Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Real Red Card Stock
- 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" from Whisper White Card Stock
- 3-3/8" x 4-5/8" of white floral pattern on red design of paper from Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack
- 2-1/4" x 2-1/2" from Whisper White Card Stock
- 1" x 3-3/4" from Whisper White Card Stock
- 2-1/4" x 3" from Real Red Card Stock
Adhere the designer paper rectangle to the large Whisper White rectangle. Then, adhere that to the center of the large Real Red rectangle. Then, adhere that to the front of the Whisper White Thick card. I like to use the Whisper White Thick Card Stock when I want a white card base as it is sturdier.
Open the Banner Triple Punch and insert one short edge of the long white strip. Punch.
Adhere the punched strip to the bottom of the card front so the notched edge is at the edge of the designer paper on the right side and the bottom of the strip is about 1/2" from the bottom of the designer paper.
Mount the larger floral heart image on Block B. Ink it up with the Real Red Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the 2-1/4" x 2-1/2" white rectangle.
Pick out the straight-edged heart framelit from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits that cuts out a heart that is 1-5/8" x 1-7/8". Place the card stock with the stamped heart on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on your Big Shot. Place the heart framelit over the stamped heart image so it is centered. Place the other Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Use the edge of the brush tip of the Real Red Marker to outline the heart cut out.
Adhere the heart cut out at a slight angle to the left side of the card so it covers the left edge of the punched white strip and overhangs the red layer on the card front just a tiny bit.
Place the Real Red Card Stock rectangle on the Precision Base Plate on top of the Big Shot Platform. Place the thinlit that cuts out the word "love" from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits on top near the top of the card stock. Pick out one of the arrows from the Love Notes Framelits and place it on top of the card stock as well. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush and Paper-Piercing Tool to remove the cut outs from the dies.
Place the love cut out and arrow cut out upside down on one side of a Silicone Craft Sheet. Cut a Stamping Sponge into quarters and clamp the triangle edge of one quarter in a large binder clip. Squeeze a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on one corner of the Silicone Craft Sheet. Dab the sponge into the glue and then lightly onto the back of the love and arrow cut outs. Flip the love cut out over and adhere it to the punched white strip. Flip the arrow over and adhere it an angle across the heart cut out so the point is angled to the top right corner.
Pick out a solid large heart image with floral patterns etched into it from the Sending Love Embellishments. Use the fine tip of the Real Red Marker to color in the etched lines. Adhere to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot.
You can keep the sponge in the binder clip and use it again and again for applying glue. Let any excess glue on the Silicone Craft Sheet dry and then just rub it off.
