We have a theme challenge for today’s hop – love. I don’t tend to be a big Valentine sender/ giver, but I really like this Country Bouquet Bundle. I’ve taken a bit of a modern approach without DSP.
Silver heat embossing, a bit of scoring and some gorgeous Simply Elegant Trim in silver highlight this card. And of course, the heart uses the Country Bouquet Punch from the Country Bouquet Bundle. The words and hearts are from the Country Bouquet stamp set.
The ‘how to’:
- Begin with a card base of Thick Basic White scored in half. This can work as 8 1/2 x 5 1/2scored at 4 1/4 or 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
- Using the Scoring Tool and the back side of a Basic White panel, create five score lines. Why the back side? Scoring creates an indentation and I wanted the scoring to be raised. After scoring, turn card stock over & bingo!
- On a piece of Basic White, rub the piece with the embossing buddy to remove finger prints or anything that would cause the embossing powder to attach itself; stamp the hearts from Country Bouquet stamp set with VersaMark ink; sprinkle with silver embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Once cool, punch with the Country Bouquet Punch and set both hearts aside.
- Determine where on the card front panel the large heart will be placed, rub entire right side of card with the embossing buddy. Stamp the two open hearts from the Country Bouquet stamp set with VersaMark ink, then the words ‘for you’. Sprinkle both with silver embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
- Add large heart with dimensionals.
- Add silver bow using the Simply Elegant Trim and adhering with a scrunched glue dot.
- Add three Pearl Basic Jewels for additional elegance.
- Add this panel to a Silver Foil Specialty Paper panel slightly larger, then add to card front. Done!
For the inside, I added a length of Silver Foil Specialty paper to the left side with liquid glue, cleaned the area to be stamped with the embossing buddy, inked the sentiment with VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat set. The smaller heart that was stamped & punched at the same time as the larger heart was added with liquid glue. This panel was added to the inside of the card and all done.
For the envelope, I again used the embossing buddy to clean an area for the enclosed hearts from the Country Bouquet stamp set; stamped them with VersaMark ink and sprinkled with the silver embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. For the envelope flap, I wanted a soft pink so added a piece of the Dainty Flowers DSP (FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration!)
