Be My Valentine

I have quite a few sketches to catch up on so you will see lots of them this week and next week as well as the cards from the December Make and Take and my Christmas cards! Whew! I guess I have my work cut out for me. is the first of many sketch challenge cards. This one was created for SCCSC100 on Stampin' Connection.

Stamps: I (Heart) Hearts, Delightful Dozen
Card Stock: Pool Party, Whisper White
DSP: Everyday Enchantment (Sale-A-Bration), Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Scallop Edge border punch, Small Heart punch, Elegant Lines embossing folder, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals

Here is the sketch created by Liz Goldhawk:

The card base is Pool Party card stock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4". Next a piece of Whisper White card stock was cut at 2-3/4" x 5-1/2". A 3/4" x 5-1/2" strip of Everyday Enchantment DSP, which you will be able to get for free with a $50 order after January 24th (Sale-A-Bration), was adhered onto the left side of the Whisper White card stock. This panel was then run through the Big Shot in the Elegant Lines embossing folder. This panel was then adhered into the center of the card front.

The I (Heart) Hearts stamp set was used to create the heart images. One was stamped on Whisper White card stock in Pool Party ink, another was stamped on Whisper White card stock in Lucky Limeade ink, and the final one was stamped on Pool Party card stock in Island Indigo ink. The hearts were cut out with Paper Snips and adhere onto the Whisper White card stock.

Two pieces of Silver Glimmer Paper were cut at 3/4" x 5-1/2" and were punched on one side with the Scallop Edge border punch. This glimmery trim was adhered on either side of the Whisper White/DSP panel on the card front.

The greeting from Delightful Dozen was stamped onto the bottom of the Whisper White card stock in Island Indigo ink. The Small Heart punch was used with a scrap of Silver Glimmer paper and the heart was adhered on top of the heart in the greeting with a Stampin' Dimensional.
