You'll recall the word CASE – I define it as "Copy And Share with Everyone." Well, today's card is definitely a CASE! Fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Tina Taves, featured this online this morning and I fell in love with the design!
This card uses the Stamp Set, Valentine Defined, from the Stampin' Up! 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog. I had no idea that the Full Heart Punch punched out those flamingos so perfectly! And now I do thanks to Tina. My only big change to this was to add a layer of Red Glimmer Paper (also in the Occasions Mini Catalog) to the central square element, and also as the Scalloped Oval Mat for the "Love" greeting. Another feature of this card is that it uses two of the designs from the Love Patterns Designer Series Paper Set for $9.95, which is only available until February 14, 2011. This is the same paper as in the Patterns Paper Stacks featured in the Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog, but you get a lot more Pretty in Pink and Real Red paper in it without having to purchase the other colors in the paper stacks (you'd have to buy both the Brights and the Subtles paper stacks at $19.95 EACH to get both of these colors).
The layout for this card is very close to the layout for a similar card that I made almost exactly one year ago! On February 7, 2010, I showed a card with the main square element starting with a 3-1/4" square as the bottom mat, and this one starts with a 2-3/4" square as the bottom mat. How do I know this? Because it's in my Robin's Craft Room 2010 Greeting Card Layout eBook! That eBook is now for sale, and I'd love for you to have a copy! For more information, click on the link at the top of the column to the right. I even have a sample of the eBook available so that you can see what it's like before you buy.
Of course I would love for you to order any of the Stampin' Up! products that I used to make this card. All you have to do is go to my Stampin' Up! website to order online any time 24/7/365! Or call (808.965.1391) or e-mail me if you have any questions!
And if you decide to make any kind of a Valentine's Day Card this week, I hope you have LOTS of fun with it!
