Framelits, Fresh Vintage, and I {Heart} Hearts Valentine Card

Are you enjoying your Stampin' Up! 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog?  Isn't it full of beautiful stamps, papers, dies, and embellishments?   Today's card features one of the Occasions Mini products and others from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Catalog that debuts on January 24th.

If I have to say it myself, I think this Valentine Card is beautiful.  The center piece of the card features Stampin' Up!'s new Framelits Dies, the Labels Collection from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I used two sizes of the labels framelits dies to cut Silver Glimmer Paper*, Whisper White, and Basic Black frames.  After cutting the Basic Black frame, I used paper snips to cut off about an 1/8" around the frame.  This gives the appearance that I used three separate framelits dies.  The Silver Glimmer Paper* behind the Basic Black frame gives the centerpiece a nice pop.

The centerpiece's floral image (beneath the hearts) on the Whisper White frame is from the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set (125117-Clear) from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  This stamp set is FREE when you purchase $50 of Stampin' Up! products (taxes and shipping apply) during Sale-A-Bration.  Atop the floral image are three hearts, one of which is made with the Silver Glimmer Paper*, and two made from stamp images in the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set.  These images were stamped with Real Red Ink and embellished with Basic Rhinestones.  Behind the centerpiece is a piece of Real Red Cardstock that is embellished with the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The sentiment "Be Mine" is from another Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, the Outlines Occasions (126016), which is also FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch to create the embellishment on the left side of the card, and a ribbon strip and bow made with retired Stampin' Up! ribbon on the right side.  Enjoy!

*The Silver Glimmer Paper is a "carry over" from the 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog. 

God's Blessings!
