Last week I had a request for another Valentine's Day card. Since we had been doing Valentines several weeks before I decided this card would be good for anyone who needed a Valentine but also would make a great thank you card for those who didn't want a Valentine. I pulled out a retired sentiment for this card because it just was so perfect.
I have always loved using Stampin' Up's Designer Series Paper. It makes it so easy to design a card if you start with a piece of this paper because your color palette is already decided. The paper I used for this card is from the Occasions Catalog and is called Fresh Prints Paper Stack. The colors in this paper are Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, and White. So although I used a piece that has no red in it, the paper made me realize that Real Red and Coastal Cabana is a great color combination and one that I never would have thought of. Paper Stacks are something fairly new that Stampin' Up has been offering. You get 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs, that are 4-1/2" x 6-1/2". When cut like the piece I used on this card you can get 3 per sheet. That equates to having enough for 144 cards! All this for just $6.95. I think it's one of the best deals ever.
Stamps: Hearts a Flutter, Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Real Red, Coastal Cabana
Paper: White, Real Red, Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack
Misc: Postage Punch, Rhinestones, Dimensionals
