Happy Valentine's Day Card

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the other card that I made with the left over pieces from my card on Friday for the Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  If you missed that post you can check it out here.  I used left over pieces from that card to create the focal image on today's card.  I figured why not since I already have this heart laying around why not use it.  Here's a look at that card.

I mean looking at that heart how could I have let it go to waste.  It was just begging to be on a card.  So I appeased the card gods and created this card.  Really it wasn't that hard to do.  I started off with a Thick Basic White card base cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and the rest just came together.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out by cutting a piece of Basic White Cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4" because I knew I wanted to create a split card.  So I then cut a 4" x 4" piece of Real Red Cardstock and embossed it with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  To enhance the embossing I took my Whisper White Craft Pad and a Sponge Dauber and lightly (ever so lightly) went over the embossed areas with the white pigment ink.  After the pigment ink dried I cut the embossed cardstock at an angel and adhered it to the Basic White layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then wrapped two pieces of the Real Red Double Stitched Ribbon around the opening to hid the edges of the cut cardstock and provide a nice transition.  I then placed the die cut heart onto the center of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  At this point it was time for the sentiment.  So I heat embossed the Happy and Day from the Well Said Stamp Set onto some Basic Black Cardstock strips with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  I did have to do a little stamp surgery to just get the word day by itself.  But, that's okay I can just place the two words back together if I want to use that phrase latter.  I then popped them up on Mini Stampin' Dimensionals onto the heart.  I then die cut the word Valentine's from Real Red Cardstock using the Word Wishes Dies

To finish off my card I added a few of the Resign Hearts around to add a little more love to the card.  Thanks for dropping by today, If you need any of the supplies you have seen used today you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the item in the Stampin' Up!
