Pleased as Punch Valentine Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper! This is part of special product release available for purchase February 4th and features four designs of double-sided DSP (for a total of twelve sheets) that coordinate with punches from the 2020 Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs. How fun is that?? So, I thought I would show you a fun and easy Valentine’s Day card paired with the Heartfelt Bundle!

The base layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. The next layer is this design from the Pleased as Punch DSP, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

Since the other side of the plaid DSP are hearts that you can punch out with the regular heart punch, I trimmed the DSP down and punched all the hearts out, which gave me a total of 30 hearts. I separated them into groups of three colors. For the first card, you will use the Highland Heather, Blushing Bride, and Pool Part Hearts. On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink and punch out with the heart punch. I used the scallop heart punch to punch out a Vellum cardstock layer for under the hearts:

Adhere the DSP layer onto the embossed base layer and after adhering the heart layers together, adhere to the DSP layer at slight angles. The sentiment heart is adhered with dimensionals:

This is then adhered to a Petal Pink cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I used the Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends to color two small Heart Epoxy Droplets:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink and the small hearts in Petal Pink ink. I also adhered at ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom to coordinate with the card front:

I did the same thing for card 2, just used the Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, and Petal Pink DSP hearts. I changed the sentiment from Lovely Lipstick to Poppy Parade and colored the epoxy hearts with Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends:

Super easy card! I did use two of the three sheets of this design, one sheet was to punch out the hearts and the other for the second base layer. What I did with this, is first I cut a 1 ½” strip off the bottom and then I cut the rest for the layer. This way I could trim that long strip down into ¾” x 4” strips for the inside of the card since the card front layer is at 3 ¾”, thus making it too short. I made six cards, three of each design, and I still have four sets of the hearts and a whole sheet of DSP. So, I can make four more cards just like these and then make two of whatever, with the end result of twelve Valentine cards and the majority of the DSP used up!

I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
