Bloomin' Love Card

Here is a quick and easy card to make suitable for Valentines Day or any occasion - birthday, anniversary, wedding, friendship.

I must admit, the Bloomin' Love stamp set has been sitting on my shelf being neglected. This set has so many pretty designs in it and it does coordinate with the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Dies and the Large Numbers Framelits Dies ( cuts out the banner on the card ).

I stamped the heart using Blushing Bride ink all over my Whisper White cardstock which is cut at 3-3/4" x 5". I adhered that to my card base - Sahara Sand cut lengthwise at 4-1/4. The beautiful polka dot overlay is a piece of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate. Isn't it gorgeous! This acetate comes with three different designs and it is gold on one side and silver on the other! So you have choices. Love that!

The acetate is cut 4"x 5-1/4" so it is a bit larger than the white. I used  MultiPurpose Liquid Glue and dotted it on the back of a few of the gold dots and stuck it down. This way you don't see any glue. Only use a tiny bit though so it doesn't spread.

I added Blushing Bride Baker's Twine, wrapping twice around my card before tying a bow. I stamped the banner using Blushing Bride ink onto a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock and stamped my sentiment in Sahara Sand ink, then cut it out using the coordinating Framelit from the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, then adhered it using glue dots.

Don't forget to stamp the inside of your cards! That adds a nice surprise for the person opening it and just finishes off the card nicely.
