Today I’m back with another Valentine’s Card for you, but again, it could also be used for an Anniversary or with a change of sentiment a Wedding card. Let me ask you how carefully you look at the packaging your dies come in? If you’re like me I kind of glance at them and then really don’t see them again after that. It’s amazing how you can look at something and really never actually see it.
I was taking the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Royal Love die out of the packaging when I happened to notice the card on the front. I thought wow that’s a pretty neat card I think I’ll make that. Like most of us I took my inspiration from the card they showed but usually what I make and what I’ve seen change themselves up quite a bit. Which is fine, it’s the inspiration part that’s important. This is a gorgeous die, I tried it using quite light weight paper and the glittered decorative paper, both cut well, I did use wax paper between my die and paper which along with my Spellbinder’s Tool ‘n One helped it release very easily.
The top portion of the card is decorated with the Sizzix Textured Impression Embossing Folder Lattice. These are great buys because you not only get the Lattice folder but also the Butterfly in this two pack combo. Using three colors of cardstock the triple mats help the different elements pop on the card.
I added two rows of lace to the front below the mats using a string of decorative crystal bling along the top and finishing it off with the bow and charms. The charm is a Tim Holtz fragment. I stamped the word LOVE from the Avery Elle Photopolymer clear stamp set Handwritten Notes and glued it to the back of the Fragment. Then I took Tim Holtz Ranger Adirondack Mixative Silver and coated the sides and back of the Fragment. I joined it along with a danglely pearl and a silver heart. I finished them off with a white satin bow and placed them directly below the die cut heart.
The inside is finished with the same colors. The heart was cut from a lighter pink and trimmed down a bit tucking a small flourish I’d snipped from the side to below the mats. The sentiments are a combination of the Avery Elle stamp I used in the Fragment along with a JustRite Stampers Celebrations Sentiments clear stamp collection. I’m very happy with my card and hope that the inspiration I derived from the Spellbinder’s packaging will in turn inspire you to create your own Royal Love card. A list of supplies for the store products follow directly below the video. Speaking of which the video will give you the Start to Finish process of how I created the card, I hope you’ll join me there.
Have fun and Happy Craftin’!
