As soon as I saw this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, I knew I wanted to use hearts for the 3 elements. And since I wanted to make a Valentine’s Day card with my Stamp Class this week, it was the perfect opportunity to make 1 project that fit the bill for both!
And here is the sketch that inspired this design.
I’m so glad that I picked up the Metallic Real Red Embossing Powder from the 2016 Holiday catalog – it adds just the perfect amount of bling for the sentiment. I originally wanted to use Silver foil sheets for the arrow, but it really didn’t stand out. I tried black; that really stood out but I wasn’t sure about black on a Valentine’s Day card, so I opted for Pool Party. It provides enough contrast, but it is subtle enough that it doesn’t jump out as the first element you see. I am happy with the way it worked out.
The Love Notes Framelites dies are hugely popular: it was just announced that they are now being backordered until the end of February. You can still get the other products in this product suite, including the Sealed With Love stamp set, the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack, and more. If you really want the framelits, I would order them now, so that you’ll be among the first to get them when they are back in stock. I made a few other projects using the product suite which you can see here.
I’ll be making this card with the ladies in my Stamp Class Monday evening. I hope that they enjoy making this card as much as I did.
Hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see all the fabulous designs using this sketch.
Then come back tomorrow to see the other project I will be teaching to my Stamp Class.
