One of my favorite card ideas is an I love you card. I am not a big fan of the traditional Valentine's Day card, but this card would work for it. I fell in love with the Bear Hugs stamp set when it arrived on the scene with the new full line catalog. It was a BONUS that it has matching framelits so I don't have to do "fussy cutting" on it.
This card receiced raves review when I presented it at our recent event. I like that it is simple to put together but packs alot of punch. Just a little bit of stamping and a little bit of Big Shot work. If you are on my newsletter you will receive access to the full instructions, but if you are not, then use the form on the side bar to get on my weekly email list! For now, here are a couple tips:
- First, stamp the hearts in a pattern on the background. I used ink in the same color as the cardstock (Pink Pirouette). After I top folded the 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock, I left it folded then stamped three hearts down the left side. Then I moved over and stamped two hearts down making sure they landed in between the three hearts. I continued to fill the front of the card with hearts in this pattern until I finished on the right side. Then I went back in and filled the open spaces with partial hearts.
- Second, after you stamp the larger bear on Crumb Cake cardstock with Soft Suede ink you can cut him out with the matching framelits. To save you a little time, position the bear and leave some room to position the scalloped circle from the Layering Circles die on some Whisper White cardstock on the platform. Thus, cutting both at the same time.
