I’ve made a few Valentine’s Day cards this year using the You Plus Me set. It’s got lots of cute stamps in this set. So I thought I’d change up the color scheme and use the designer series paper (DSP) that I purchased to go with it. This paper stack is a set called Stacked with Love. It’s double sided with different designs and very versatile. I usually don’t use a whole lot of designer series paper, but I’m trying hard to incorporate new technique and designs.
The banners are made using my banner punch using one sheet of (DSP) – there are two designs bc I just flipped over the paper (as I mentioned, the paper is double sided with different designs). I used by Banner Framelits Dies to cut out the larger banners for layering and the only stamping I did on this card was the round sentiment that says “You + Me.” I also used a sentiment on the inside of the card that reads “Be Mine” from the same You Plus Me set.
So simple…it feels like cheating.
The string is just some simple pink twine. I also used my Itty Bitty Accents heart punch and punched out two hearts for the large banners – I thought it needed a little more.
The DSP coordinates with Calypso Coral and is also the color I used for the card base and the sentiment on this card. You don’t need punches or banner framelits dies to make this card (what I used to tell myself before I wanted EVERYTHING in the catalog) – but it certainly makes it look uniform and nice!
