Hi friends! I have a sweet little valentine to share with you and the SU-Only Challenge design team today. This is a card that we made a couple weeks ago in my monthly stamp club--it was a big hit!The base is SU's Scallop Square Clear Die (a SU exclusive) that creates a 4 3/8" x 4 3/8" square. I simply cut two from Crumb Cake cardstock, scored a line at the first scallop on both pieces and adhered the top together with sticky strip. Easy Peasy. There's something about small cards for Valentine's Day that warms my heart--maybe they remind me of the ones we gave and received as children.
With my base together, I inked up the hearts banner from Valentine Defined in Crumb Cake ink and stamped it 3 times across the top--it fit perfectly!
Next, I inked the tree with Pretty in Pink ink and went over just the base of the tree with an Early Espresso marker. The EE is dark enough that it covered right over the pink. I punched an itty bitty heart out of red glimmer paper with the
I thought the tree looked a little bare and needed something to ground it, so I dug through my stamps until I came up with the perfect grass accent. Do you know where this stamp came from? Can you guess? If you have small children--girls especially--in your house you might already have this one...Pony Party! That's right the one that looks like My Little Pony. I bought it for my daughter but actually it has all kinds of great little accents such as this grass, a birthday hat, rainbows and a cloud--so cute! Anway, inked in Old Olive it was perfect for my little tree. A sentiment from Tiny Tags in Real Red made a sweet addition to the bottom corner. I added a scallop trim border of Glimmer Paper and tied the whole thing with a piece of Early Espresso 1/8" taffeta ribbon.
The inside needed the finishing touch so I stamped the heart banner again in Pretty in Pink and added a Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiment in Real Red. And there you have it!
