Valentine Inspiration

It seems impossible that Valentine's Day is just 1 week away. Are you ready? Have you picked out the perfect card? Remember you can make the card yourself and make it even more special. I'm going to showcase two cards today with just brief information about them. I will have a new tutorial posted tomorrow or Tuesday. Still working off the laptop as my new computer is not ready for pickup yet.

Hal's cousin has a birthday on Valentine's Day so the first card is for him.

This card used both the scallop trim corner punch and the scallop trim border punch. Don't you love how they look together. The only way you can get the scallop border punch right now is thru our Sale-A-Bration catalog .... it's one of the free items you can choose from when you place a $50 order (before tax & shipping) from our main catalog or from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

The textured hearts were created using the Stampin' Up! Embosslits Die that is exclusive to us. It is in the Occasions Mini Catalog and is item #117332. It cuts and embosses all at the same time. LOVE IT.

This card uses the pinking hearts paper punches (both corner and border) from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Great way to accent a card. Also used the heart of hearts embosslits PLUS the Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder (item #117335) and Stampin' Up! Embosslits Die called Stampin' Up! Beautiful Wings (item #118138) for the butterflies.

It is amazing how you can change the look of a card just by adding in a border punch or corner punch or an accent like the butterflies and hearts above. The cards I made above were all made from scrap pieces I had in my craft room with the exception of the card bases. Don't hesitate to try the leftover pieces, you will be amazed at what you can make with them.
