Today is a sneak peek into one of my favorite bundles in the 2019 Occasions catalog, Meant To Be.
I love hearts and Valentine’s Day, which explains my desire to make Valentine cards. How did this love begin? Valentine’s Day was my mother’s favorite holiday, next to Christmas, and she surrounded herself with hearts, year-round. They were in many forms: wood, rock, paintings, jewelry. I think she truly understood the essence of a heart, and now, in heaven, she has full comprehension.
My project began with Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper in the color of Pool Party, where heart constellations appear in the heavens.
The sentiment, “Meant To Be,” is in the Meant To Be stamp set, which I stamped in Granny Apple Green. Next, I gave the heavens some texture with the Subtle Textured embossing folder. Then, I adhered this to a layer of Granny Apple Green cardstock, 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16″ border.
I chose Thick Whisper White for the card base, and embossed it with the Oh My Stars embossing folder.
I added more hearts in Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut with a Be Mine Stitched die. You end up with 21 little, cut out hearts, but I used the “frame.” I colored one of the hearts with Light and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends, and placed it in the frame. I think Mama will like this.
My colors were inspired by the challenge at Global Design Project:
