Here is the project that I have made for our hop today…
I have used the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Stamp Set and coordinating punches to create this masculine Valentine’s Day card.
Let’s make it…
The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I then cut a smaller layer of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder. Using a Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker, I created ‘splatters’ down the left hand side of the card. I think this adds a little extra interest and stops the card from looking too stark.
Using the plain punch (non-scalloped) from the Heart Punch pack, I cut four hearts from 6×6″ Neutrals Designer Series Paper (two each of Sahara Sand and Night of Navy). I then adhered these down the right hand side of the card front.
I wrapped a length of Night of Navy / Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine around the card front and adhered behind using Tear & Tape. The card front was then adhered to the card base.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock and cut out using the heart punch. This was then adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think the use of Sahara Sand cardstock rather than Whisper White here gives a more distressed look and helps with the masculine feel of the card.
