Valentines for the Troops - Canada
I decided that poppies and hearts would be perfect for Valentines for the troops.
. This contains elements from the new Peaceful Poppies suite in the January to June Mini Catalog with the Meant to Be Stamp Set and Stitched Be Mine heart dies from the annual catalog. The Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper gives a lovely color palette to coordinate with - Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Coastal Cabana, Rich Razzleberry, and Blackberry Bliss.
This card base is made from a 5 1/2 inch by 8 1/2 piece of
Poppy Parade card stock folded in half. A 4 by 5 1/4 piece of
Painted Poppies designer series paper has a piece of
gorgeous grape striped ribbon added at the bottom before
adhering to the card base. The sentiment was embossed in
white on Poppy Parade card stock then cut out with a heart
die from the Stitched Be Mine set. The heart was adhered
with Stampin' Dimensionals.
This card base uses a 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 piece of
Whisper White card stock folded in half. It has been
embossed with the new stone embossing folder from
the Saleabration brochure. A 2 by 5 1/2 piece of
Painted Poppies designer series paper has been
mounted on a 2 1/2 by 5 1/2 piece of Rich
Razzleberry card stock. The heart was stamped on Whisper White with Rich Razzleberry Ink and cut out with a Stitched Be Mine heart die. The scalloped frame was cut from Blackberry Bliss Card stock. They were mounted on the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
This card base uses a 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 piece of card stock folded
in half. The top layer is built on a 4 by 5 1/2 piece of Whisper
White. The field of poppies is stamped in Memento Tuxedo
Black. The poppies are stippled with Poppy Parade and Old
Olive ink stamped off once using the stamps from the Painted
Poppies set. The band of hearts is cut from Poppy Parade
card stock. Some of the hearts have been reinserted and
added around the band. A 1 by 5 1/4 piece of Painted Poppies
Designer Series Paper has been overlapped on the left edge.
A piece of Poppy Parade ribbon (now retired) has been
wrapped around the overlap area. The for you stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black is from the Heart to Heart stamp set.
The panel is then adhered to the card base.
