Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. Today's post features the Sealed With Love stamp set and Love Notes Framelits from the Occasions Catalog. I'm sure that you've been seeing quite a few projects using this great bundle. With all the great stamp images and awesome framelits, you can have some serious fun making all sorts of Valentine's cards, Love Notes, Wedding and Anniversary cards, Birthday cards, and Missing You cards. This is a card that I designed for my January Stamp Club meetings. I just love all the touchable texture!
This card begins with a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock with the right edge die cut with the Big Shot using the articulating hearts edgelit. The edgelit was placed vertically with the outside edge of the edgelit approximately 1/8" from the right edge of the cardstock. Once the edgelit was removed, the left side of the articulating hearts were folded at the score line toward the right and the cardstock placed inside the Happy Heart Textured Impressions embossing folder with the top edge of the cardstock lined up with the top edge of the first row of horizontal hearts (just above the Sizzix printed on the front of the folder) and the left side of the cardstock lined up with the second vertical row of hearts (just to the right of the Stampin' Up! logo). The embossing folder was then rolled through the Big Shot.
A strip of paper from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack was adhered to the Real Red card front with the top, right, and bottom edges an equal distance from the top, right, and bottom edges of the card front. The die cut and embossed Thick Whisper White cardstock was adhered to the card front with the left, top, and bottom edges an equal distance from the left, top, and bottom edges of the card front.
The "Happy Valentine's Day" greeting was stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Real Red ink. The "smoochie" image was randomly stamped over the greeting using Pink Pirouette ink. The greeting was die cut with the Big Shot using a framelit from the Layering Circles Framelits. A piece of Real Red cardstock was die cut with the Big Shot using a slightly larger scalloped circle framelit from the Layering Circles Framelits. The greeting was adhered at the center of the scalloped circle and then adhered near the lower center of the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Gold sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment were adhered to the card front using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.
The inside sentiment area of the card was lined with a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the "smoochie" image randomly stamped over the liner using Pink Pirouette ink. A strip of Real Red cardstock was adhered behind the top edge of a piece of paper from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack and adhered along the bottom edge of the liner.
A 3" square of paper from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack was die cut with the Big Shot using the envelope framelit (the framelit fits across the square diagonally). The envelope was assembled (bottom, left, and right flaps adhered using the Fine Tip Glue Pen) and adhered near the upper center of the liner.
A small piece of Whisper White cardstock was stamped with the row of small hearts image. The "love you lots" sentiment was stamped just below the row of hearts. Both images use Real Red ink. The corresponding love note framelit was used to die cut the cardstock with the Big Shot. The die cut was inserted into the envelope. It's just too darn cute!!! There are so many adorable ways you can embellish with all the fun framelits in this bundle. It was VERY HARD not to go crazy with all the fun items.
The "Happy Valentine's Day" greeting was stamped at the lower left front corner of the Medium Whisper White Envelope using Real Red ink. The "smoochie" image was randomly stamped around and over the greeting using Pink Pirouette ink.
With just a few weeks until Valentine's Day, it's time to get serious about making those love notes and cards for all the special someones in your life. With all the cute stamp images and loads of fun framelits, I think this bundle is the best bang for the buck in the Occasions Catalog. AND during Sale-A-Bration, purchase of this bundle and a Real Red Classic Ink pad will earn you one FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. You gotta love that!!!
