I love making valentines, and this one is “for you.” It takes few supplies, and is really very simple.

Valentine For You

 

I began with a favorite Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper for the frame. Using the largest, and third largest, Stitched Rectangles Dies, I cut the frame, which is layered for thickness.

TIP: Glue the DSP and Cardstock together before cutting with the dies. Make your cut at the same time, eyeballing to make sure the borders are even. And, use 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 to give room for the largest die to fit.

Next, I used the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut Whisper White Cardstock, which I glued to the back of the frame. Then, I glued this to a Rich Razzleberry card base.

 

The flowers are from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set, stamped in Rich Razzleberry Ink on the Whisper White Cardstock. If I had thought about it ahead of time, I would have stamped the flowers before gluing everything together. But, I used the Stamparatus, and it turned out fine. Whew!

 

The large heart was made with Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper and a Be Mine Stitched Die, and, again, layered for thickness. 

The small sentiment, “for you,” is from the Perfectly Framed Stamp Set. It was tempting to “frame” it, but I decided on a simple stamping in Rich Razzleberry Ink. I found a cute, little, Enamel Heart in my stash.

 

I’m playing along with the “valentine” challenge at Fusion.
