Happy Valentine's Day Card by Rebecca Boling - visit

I have a new Sunshine Wishes Gallery courtesy of one of my fellow paper crafters and readers, Rebecca Boling.  You may remember her Guest Artistry from the Beautiful You Gallery she shared with me last Spring.

This Gallery features the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits™ Dies from the Stampin’ Up!® 2017-2018 Annual CatalogThe Die Set includes swirly images, such as the hearts featured in this card, and script words.  The Dies coordinate with the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set, but they don’t match.  There are a lot of word stamps included, which is handy to create a number of occasions cards.

Rebecca’s first project is a Happy Valentine’s Day card.  She used a white card stock base and used scrap patterned paper to great effect!  That’s one of the great things about Thinlits, you can cut shapes from the tiniest of scraps… so if you’re a scrap-saver, you’re all set!

You can attach the swirly heart shapes a number of ways.  If you want them to lie flat, you can dot the back with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  You can also cut them from a piece of Designer Series Paper that you’ve attached to a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet.  This gives the shapes an adhesive backing after you peel away the liner.  If you want a little lift, roll up Mini Glue Dots into burritos and attach them to the back.  The Stampin’ Dimensionals (both sizes) are too large for the swirly heart and are very awkward to cut to size.

To make the Happy Valentine’s Day banner, you can stamp a strip of paper and trim it to fit the sentiment.  A few snips on the ends will create the flag ends and you’re ready to attach it to a larger strip of patterned paper.  The banner is accented with an Enamel Shape in a coordinating color.  Other gel or epoxy shapes accent the card on a cream-colored label.

Thank you, Rebecca, for sharing this beautiful Valentine!  And thank you for being my Guest Artist today.
