Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is an alternative card made for Valentine’s Day! While I’ve made several Valentine’s cards to inspire you from the Occasion’s Catalog, I thought my final card this week would be something “outside the box”! Whether hearts and flowers are not really your thing or maybe you only make one card for Valentine’s Day, I put on my “creative cap” to find a set from the current Annual Catalog. I first thought about Animal Outing, which would be perfect since this month’s Paper Pumpkin coordinates with Animal Outing, but then I thought about Little Twinkle and thought the sentiment would be perfect! Add a little heat embossing, Rose Glimmer Paper, and Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems…you get a super cute Valentine’s Day card!
The DSP used for this card is from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP, the base layer is 4” x 5 ¼” and the next layer is 3 ½” x 4 ¾”:
For the card front, you will need two of the largest Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems (hexagon shape), another piece of the DSP big enough to heat emboss the sentiment in Silver Emboss Powder and cut out with the 3rdsmallest Rectangle Stitched Framelits, and use the Twinkle Builder Punch for the moon, two of each size stars, and one dot from Rose Glimmer Paper:
To assemble the card front, layer and adhere the two pieces of DSP together, adhere the moon to the sentiment, use the Take Your Pick Tool to help pick up and adhere the stars and dot with the Fine Tip Glue Pen, and then place the gems. This is then adhered to the card base, which is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, I used a sponge dauber with Night of Navy ink to sponge the moon with a mask I created from old cardstock and the punch and then heat embossed the stars and dot stamp in Silver Emboss Powder. **If you have the Spooky Sweets stamp set, you can always use the moon from that instead of masking**:
Isn’t this a great card?? You can easily use the Twinkle Twinkle Suite to create your cards, just change up the colors used! Have a retired heart punch or die set? Substitute the stars for hearts!
Wondering what specials are going on?? Current specials are listed to the right!!
