Groovy Kind of Love Valentine

Groovy L ove Valentine

Our next card-giving holiday is Valentine’s Day, and it’s my favorite holiday for which to create cards.  This year, Stampin’ Up! has given us so many Valentine’s Day products, both in the new 2016 Occasions Catalog and in the larger Annual Catalog, I’m not sure I’ll be able to show them all!

  • For this card, I’m once again combining the old and the new.  Groovy Love is a – well – “groovy” stamp set in the Annual Catalog that coordinates with the Sweetheart Punch.  I love all the different images and sentiments in this one set – it could keep you busy for a long time!
  • In the Occasions Catalog, there is a paper stack called Have A Cuppa.  It goes with our tea suite and it is so adorable!  But I thought I’d wait until Mother’s Day to show all of the cuteness to this suite.  Looking through the papers, I noticed that there are several pieces with hearts, so it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, too!  And as always, using Stampin’ Up! designer paper gives you a “no-brainer” color scheme for your card.  I just picked up the colors in the designer paper to use as my solids – Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate (although the designer paper is Basic Gray, but I wanted a lighter feel).
  • A really pretty new accent in the Occasions Catalog are the Botanical Gardens Jewels.  It’s a pretty silver flower with attached rhinestone in the center.  I’m going with the “flower power” idea on my groovy card!
  • It’s really fun to create custom-sized cards so that you’re not always locked into filling the standard space.  This card measures 3-1/2″ x 6″ so that I could take advantage of a longer, thinner card front.  And I can easily create the perfect-sized envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.  All I needed was an 8″ x 8″ piece of cardstock and the instructions on the board.  I like Multipurpose Adhesive to put my envelope together.  And while you’re making your envelope, you can use the Punch Board to round the corners on the designer paper – a two-in-one tool!
