Always Valentine’s Day Card

Hello! Today I’m featuring a Valentine’s Day card that we did in my January class to go. It uses dies and an embossing folder and the only stamping is the greeting on the inside of the card. I’ve been seeing cards with a Basic Black, Basic White and Magenta Madness color combination that I think is very striking so here is what I came up with.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Cut piece of Basic Black cardstock at 4 1/2″ x 11″, score at 5 ½”, fold and crease with bone folder.  Cut piece of True Love Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front.
  • Cut piece of Basic White cardstock at 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″. Run it through your die cutting and embossing machine with the Lace 3D embossing folder, centering the design so that it is even on both sides.  Adhere to a piece of Magenta Madness cardstock cut at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.
  • Back a scrap piece of Basic Black cardstock with part of an adhesive sheet that is cut to size and run through your die cutting & embossing machine with the Always die from the Always Die set.  Cut a 2 1/2″ square piece of Magenta Madness cardstock and back with a piece of adhesive sheet. Run it through the machine with the second largest scalloped heart from the Stitched Be Mine die set.  Adhere the heart to the embossed Basic White piece.  Adhere to the Magenta Madness cardstock.  Adhere the Always die cut to the piece and then adhere piece to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • You can use any greeting from your stamp sets for the inside greeting. I mixed sentiments from two different stamp sets. I used “In My Heart” from the Field of Flowers stamp set and the “Happy Valentine’s Day” greeting from the Forever Lovely stamp set, which is now retired. I lined both of them up on an acrylic block so I could stamp them both at the same time and stamped them with Magenta Madness ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Adhere to inside of card.

Basic White Products are Now Available

Hello! As previously announced, Whisper White cardstock products are no longer available and have been replaced with Basic White cardstock products. They are now available for purchase. Prices remain the same however the item numbers are different. I’m awaiting an order so while I haven’t seen it in person yet, I am told by other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that while the Whisper White had some yellow overtones, the Basic White has some blue overtones, making it a brighter white. I can’t wait for my order to arrive so I can see the difference for myself and test it out!
