Bella Beautiful Valentine

Many of you know I love roses and the whole "Victorian" look, so of course I love the retired Bella Rose paper and who doesn't love roses for Valentine's Day (LOL)!!!!!


  • First I used the polka dots textured folder on the Pink Pirouette paper, then used the new scalloped edge and corner punch found in the Occasions Mini and Sale-a-bration.
  • Next I cut out the roses from the patterned paper from Bella Rose Designer Series Paper and adhered to pink panel using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Ink the Bella Toile background stamp in Kiwi Kiss and stamp on the Kiwi Kiss card front.
  • Wrap a piece of Soft Suede grosgain polka dot ribbon around the pink panel and adhere in back.
  • Punch 3 holes (on the polka dots) and then place Silver Brads.
  • Then adhere pink panel to card front using SNAIL Adhesive.
Other Suggestions
  • I kept toying with the idea of embossing the Kiwi Kiss on the card front, as well as using small, clear Rhinestone brads instead of silver.
Happy Stamping!
