Here’s a card you can make for Valentine’s Day when you don’t happen to have any Valentine’s Day stamps. Not that many of us don’t have plenty of Valentine’s Day stamps! But I wanted to do something different and I have been challenging myself to use more of the Pressed Petals DSP. I really love it and I want Stampin’ Up! to give us more of this type paper!
For this card, I cut out one of the wreaths you can find in this DSP. I stamped the sentiment in the middle of it and was just going to layer the entire wreath with its background on a solid piece of card stock. But I didn’t think it was enough, so I fussy cut the wreath and then took another piece of the DSP and die cut a stitched oval from it and stamped the sentiment on that. If I had worked a little harder and planned better, I could have had the die cut oval match exactly. But that only occurred to me afterwards! But I played around until I got a look I like and then popped it up with dimensionals, which I think made the card much more interesting. Adding to another layer of DSP helped as well.
I tied it all together using some linen thread and made one of those big old bows everyone is so in love with and considered it done! The hearts are die cuts from the Detailed Bee Dies. To me, this looks a bit like a vintage Valentine’s Day card. And I got to use more of the Pressed Petals DSP. I hope they make more of this type paper. I love the antique look of it. And I am not even an antique kind of person!
