This month’s theme for the Kre8tor’s Blog Hop is “anniversary.” I thought it would be fun to use Stampin’ Up’s! Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set to create my anniversary card. Most husbands would consider being loved more than chocolate a huge compliment. Don’t you think? You can follow along for instructions, and find my supplies in the Product List below.
Cut Crumb Cake Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.
Use the second largest, Stitched Rectangles Die, to cut a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, and glue it to the middle of the card base.
Use the “Love You More Than” die to cut the words from Early Espresso Cardstock. If you want to emphasize the “you,” cut the words a second time from Real Red Cardstock. The die cuts the four words together, but they are not attached.
Cut a section from the Foam Adhesive Sheet, 1″ X 3″, and adhere a piece of 1″ X 3″ Early Espresso Cardstock to one side. Place the “chocolate” on top, and run it through your die cutting machine. Turn it over, and run it through a second time to get a good cut.
Use the candy outline stamp, from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set, and stamp it in Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Stamp it in rows, enough to fill the heart. The cardstock should be 3″ X 4″ to accommodate the heart, or you can cut the heart first, and then stamp on it. Use the solid stamp to fill in the candy with Early Espresso Ink and Soft Suede Ink, both “stamped off” to be a shade lighter.
I used the heart from the Be Mine Stitched Die Set for cutting, but you could use a different heart, that’s approximately the same size.
Once your heart is glued in place, you can glue the words “Love you more than,” and attach “chocolate.”
Your anniversary card is sure to bring a smile, especially if he gives YOU chocolate!
