Happy Valentine's Day 2009

This is this year's masculine Valentine's Day card. I didn't hold a workshop this year for Valentine's Day cards, but instead held a technique class where this was a pop-up card we made. I used the template from http://www.raisastamps.com/ for the inside of the card, the pop-up.

In this card, the following Stampin' Up! products were used:

Stamps: Always, Priceless, One of a Kind, Love Matters (retired), and Happy Hearts (retired)

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, and Baja Breeze Designer Series Paper (Prints), Vellum

Inks: Whisper White Craft Ink, Sky Blue (retired, but you can use Baja Breeze), Chocolate Chip

Tools/Accessories: Markers (Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip), Crystal Effects, Chocolate Chip satin ribbon, Paper Piercing Tool (from the Crafter's Toolkit), Scallop Edge Border, Stampin' Dimensionals

This is the inside of the card on Vellum paper.
You can't see the light blue (Sky Blue) hearts I stamped. Baja Breeze would be a better color to use.

Just remember when using the Craft Ink, it is thicker than the Classic Ink and takes longer to dry.

The part of the card that may need some instruction is the heart on the front. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, then used the Stampin' Write Markers mentioned above to "color" the stamp, then stamped it on scrap Whisper White paper. I then added Crystal Effects to some of the flowers and leaves. Set aside for it to dry. Then cut the heart out and adhere using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
