Valentines Card

Hello everyone I was thrilled to have been a top mouse for the last sketch challenge. For this weeks sketch, I knew immediately that I wanted to make a round easel card.

Using the largest Spellbinders Nestability scalloped circles die, I die cut my easel pieces. Next I selected the largest Spellbinders Nestability circle die to die cut the main papers for my card.
Using one of the Victorian Frippery stamps, I stamped and embossed a piece of cardstock. I then used a heart punch, added a eyelet to create a pendant.

I stamped a sentiment from the Cameo to Go stamp set and created a simple tag to add to the flower.

To create the stop for the easel base, I selected the cameo from the Oval Classic Frames set. I applied foam tape to add some dimension.


Paper: Prima Romantique paper pad, DCWV paper pad

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps Oval Classic Frames, Cameo to Go and Victorian Frippery.

Ink: Stampin’ Up pretty in pink and soft suede, Versamark

Other: Spellbinders Nestabilities lacey circles, petite scalloped circles large, standard circles large, Vivaldi blossom, Kaisercraft pearls, Stampin’ Up white embossing powder, Fiskars 1.5” tag punch, 1” circle punch, heart punch, lace, pink ribbon, eyelets, string.

Thanks for stopping by!
