Have you ever made a card and you just loved it...but then when you see a picture of it...you doubt yourself! Well...this sums it up about this card! It truly is super cute and so simple...just the way I like it!
Before we go further in today's card...I hope that you had as much fun as I did on the Blog Hop Trail yesterday! There was endless talent one after another! As I stated in my post...these hops are one of my favorite things to post every month!
Being a PAL and under the amazing leadership of Mary Fish is nothing short of sheer fun! I invite you to consider becoming a hobbiest Stampin Up! Demonstrator for 2 reasons:
- You will be able to get your products at a discount each and everytime you order...
- You will be a part of the PALS Community and within this community we have private gallerys...chat's going on about tips and techniques....just an endless amount of resources of learning!
I would be honor to have you along this fun...clean and simple ride with me and now is a GREAT time during Sale-A-Bration as you can choose $150.00 worth of products for $99.00....you can click here and get started or email me and we can pick a time to chat....I am totally laid back and want YOU to do what works for you and your family! Well over 80% of the Stampin; Up! family are hobbiest and why not?
We all flock to stores when there is a sale....we use coupons and get gas rewards from our grocery stores....why not get your Stampin' Up products at a discount and also have the opportunity to learn from some of the most amazing people.....I think the hop showcased some of that talent!
O.k. - enough....let's get going....I have lots of pictures and I do hope that you will try a card like this! It is sooooo darn tootin' cute and I know that if you had it in your hands....you would adore this little mouse!
The base is a note card and I would start by using the handy ruler! A ruler and pencil are your friends...like peanut butter and jelly.....
Take this to the Big Shot and place the Just Saying framlit to cut out the speach bubble! TIP: - I would highly recommend purchasing the bundle - Next, cute out a Real Red Heart from the Heart Framelit - This will fit perfectly in the inside of your card!
Take the cut out top and close it and then trace the image....( it will erase easily in a jif!!!) This again will make it easier to get the placement of the sentiment!
I used my new favorite - White Staz On Ink - it dries SUPER FAST....the coverage is not super bold....but I am thrilled with having a white to work with! REMEMBER...stamp the plastic sheet...place it where you want it to go....put the black piece....remove the plastic and stamp! EASY-PEASY!
I did the same to stamp the adorable little mouse on the front! This is from the Life in the Forest Stamp Set, so cute, popular and fun!
This little guy needed some balloons.....so they were a POP with the small heart punch and I mounted them with Stampin Dimensionals (cut in half) Are you wondering where the "X's & O's" came from - these are not necessary as you can just freehand them in....but they are from the Countless Sayings Photopolymer Set....don't you just LOVE this set!
The finale of the envelope with the fresh and fun Polka Dots just makes you smile! It truly is a cute card and I look forward to making more cards with the speech bubble cut out.....really like the effect and ease!
Well that's it and this is my last Valentine Card for you.....time to think forward to new ideas.....I have a bunch of Birthdays ahead to get ready for some clean and simple cards that you can make up in a snap!
Time is sooooo precious to all of us...if I can make reaching your goals easier.....mission accomplished!
