I hope you had an enjoyable Valentine Day yesterday.  We do not get too excited about these holidays.  It was just a nice, relaxing, and WET, day.  I am ready to go out and see sunshine!!!  I am happy we just have rain and not the snow and storms some are having.  I hope all of you are safe and dry!

Today’s card is an extra Valentine card I made but did not share.  It could also be for a wedding.  I paired a few different products from the Forever & Always Bundle and suite.

 

Stampin' Up!, Forever and Always, Metalic Ribbon, Love you always foil, true love , Jackie Beers

 

I mixed several blingy pieces on this card.  I began with the card base of Blushing Bride cardstock.  Next is a layer of the Love You Always Foil Sheet, which is blush or champagne color.  The foil is topped with True Love Designer Series Paper in the polka dot.

I added a banner with an angle cut made from the Love You Always Foil sheet.  It is wrapped with a ribbon bow from the Blushing Bride Metalic Ribbon.  The ribbon is beautiful!  The back is Blushing Bride and the front is a mixture of blush and gold.  I had to fiddle with my bow to keep only the front of the ribbon showing.  It is well worth the fiddling time!

For the focal areas, I stamped the flowers from the Forever & Always Bundle and colored with Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends.  The leaves are colored using Just Jade Stampin’ Blends.

I went a bit rogue on the “LOVE”.  I had used the Blush Foil, but wanted to bring out the gold in the ribbon.  So I used Gold Foil to cut the background of the LOVE. (If I had a do over, I would use the blush for this as well)

Measurements:

  • Blushing Bride card base is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Foil layer is 3 7/8 X 5 1/8
  • DSP layer is 3 3/4 X 5
  • Angle Foil is 2 1/2 X 3 7/8 with a 1″ angle cut (place a mark at 1″ on the right side and put the mark on the cutting line.  place the opposite corner on the cutting line as well, cut from mark to point)

 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you like my mix of products and will give these items another look in the catalog.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
