I decided to get a jump start on Valentine projects and make a card today that features the absolutely gorgeous big new Bloomin’ Heart Die that you can see on pg 16 of the Occasions Catalog…
This die makes a stunning centerpiece and is so eye catching that you can use it just by itself – but it does have a co-ordinating set of stamps called Bloomin’ Love that has great phrases that are perfect to use with it – and you can BUNDLE UP AND SAVE 15% when you buy these two items together – details below!
Here is my card…I love the contrast of using red, vanilla and black – it’s so classically elegant…
Isn’t that heart just GORGEOUS? It makes it easy to create eye catching cards & pages!
The cardstock colors…I used Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Very Vanilla.
The textured layer…I used my Softly Falling Embossing Folder to create a randomly dotted backdrop on the vanilla layer
The heart…that stunningly intricate heart is die cut using the Bloomin’ Heart Die – and those black flowers are die cut using the two small flower dies that ALSO come in that pack – you get a total of 3 dies in there!
The banner…is stamped using two stamps from Bloomin’ Love – the banner and Love You are two separate stamps and there are other stamps you can fill that banner with in the set!
The finishing touch…I added Pearls to the flower centers to die in with my vanilla and dotted background.
I just LOVE how this card turned out – it’s intricate looking but easy to make – the perfect card!
