Splitcoaststampers Card Sketch 785

Valentine's Day may be my new favorite crafting holiday.  It was Halloween, but the hearts are winning me over.  And there's still chocolate involved 😊  

I have an in-person Valentine's class today and I love to leave a little surprise, or "pillow gift", at each person's spot, so a lot of projects were made for that.  I also sell and donate cards, so many will go into the hands of others as a way to express their affections this February 14.  It's just so stinkin' FUN to create and it's wonderful there are a TON of ways to use this for a purpose.

So, yes, it's another Valentine's Day card for this week's Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge!  If you are a regular reader of my blog or follow me on Facebook, you have an arsenal of ideas by this point.  Time for another!

Heartfelt classic red and black Valentine's Day card

This is a very simple and straight-forward card.  Fold in half a 5-1/2"x8-1/2" piece of Real Red cardstock.  Glue on (2) 3-1/2"x2" pieces of From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Using the Layering Squares dies, cut 2 scalloped squares from Basic Black cardstock and 1 scalloped Square from Real Red cardstock and glue them together.

Stamp the outline heart from the Heartfelt stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times on Real Red cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock.  Sprinkle with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and melt with a Heat Tool.  Punch out all 4 hearts with the Heart Punch.

Glue everything to the card base as shown.  Add a Clear Faceted Gem to the sentiment heart.  Tie a bow with Black Satin Ribbon and adhere with a Glue Dot.
