Happy & Heartfelt – I *Heart* You

Playing with the Double Trouble (#102) Challenge…Thing One: Anything, Thing Two: Partner with other challenges, and Thing Three Twist: A different card size.

I created a Masculine Valentine card in the Mini-Slim Line size and partnered with Dies R US (#186).

Additional challenges that inspired me were as follows…Style and Theme: Just Add Ink (#589), CAS On Friday (#224) and CASology (#400) and Theme and Color: Four Seasons (Winter – February) and AAA Cards (#208).

Here is the result using one of my favorite CAS Design Sketches:

HAPPY & HEARTFELT – DT102 – JAI589 – COS224 – CASology400 – FSWinterFeb – AAACC208 – DRUC186

Steps:

  • Card Base: (7” x 6” scored at 3½”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Center Square: (1⅝” x 1⅝”) Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, i *heart* you, from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
    • The *Heart* was colored in with the Real Red Stampin’ Blend.
    • The sentiment was die-cut with the (1⅝” x 1⅝”) square die from the retired Layering Squares Dies set.
  • Square Scallop Frame: (1¾” x 1¾”) Real Red cardstock scrap die-cut with the scalloped square die from the same set of Layering Square Dies.
  • The Sentiment Square was adhered to the scalloped frame and then added to the card with Dimensionals.

A very clean and simple card.  Black and White with a pop of color, in this case Red, is always a classic.  The simple sentiment, I *Heart* You, works really well for a masculine Valentine card as it is no-nonsense and straight to the point conveying the affectionate message with a minimal of fuss.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
