Cherish

I am in love with this card made by alystamps on Splitcoast. I used the same layout to make this card, which I demo'd at a workshop on Wednesday night. I enjoyed pulling out my Pretties Kit to make the decorative pin.

I stamped the Boho Blooms background stamp on the Regal Rose card using VersaMark ink. Next, I stamped the sentiment (from Baroque Motifs) with Rose Red ink in the lower left corner. I used my Eyelet Border punch on a strip of Whisper White cs and layered this onto the card, along with a strip of Raspberry Tart designer paper and a narrow strip of Rose Red cs.

I stamped the heart from Polka Dot Punches in VersaMark ink on some Regal Rose scrap cs and embossed it with white embossing powder. I punched it out with the Full Heart punch and inserted a pin from the Pretties Kit, which I dolled up with some of the clear beads and faux pearls. I also added a piece of the new Whisper White organza ribbon (so pretty!). I like that you could use this card as a Valentine, but it would also make a lovely anniversary or wedding card.

Speaking of Valentine's Day, I hope yours is filled with happiness and time with your special ones. I don't have any events scheduled this weekend, so I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with my family. Have a great weekend!

Jen, I love everything about this card! It's so lovely. That border punch is really cute. I guess that will be the next thing I'll have to get. I'm loving the Raspberry Tart DP.
