SUO140 Beautiful Blessing

Hi Friends!   

It’s time for the SUO140 “It's Time for Valentine’s” Challenge and I decided to create a very Clean and Simple (CAS) card that could be sent to your Valentine or a sweet friend for Valentine’s Day.

I decided to play along with the Splitcoaststampers’ CAS359 “Wow Them!” White on White Challenge along with the Stampin’ Celebration SC120 Inspiration  Challenge and the Just Add Ink JAI294 “Add Something New Blog Hop” Challenge (the Rose Wonder and Bloomin' Love Thinlits are brand new :-)).

 I hope you will have a chance to check out my sister Design Team member samples at the SU-Only Challenge site as well as the fantastic Design Team samples at the other three sites- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ along with the Precision Base Cutting Plate and Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit™ Die to cut out the heart image and a few of the flowers from a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Ink the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Smoky Slate Classic Ink and stamp at the bottom of the cut panel.

Trim the cut panel to 4” x 5 ¼” , insert the die cut heart back into the cut opening and mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Spritz the die cut flowers with a bit of water to soften the cardstock, shape the flowers to curl the petals and once dried, mount onto the card front.

Add the Pearls to finish off the card.

This card was a bit difficult to photograph but the die cut heart casts pretty shadows through the opening- a quick, easy Valentine to make for anyone in your life!  

What do you think?  I believe that this design could also be a Wedding or Anniversary card - of course, with a different sentiment :-)

Stamp Sets:  Rose Wonder

Ink:  Smoky Slate
Paper/Cardstock: Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot™, Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits™ Die, Pearls

Thanks again for stopping by and we hope to see your Stampin’ Up! Only project in our “"It's Time for Valentine’s” Challenge gallery!

Julie this card is simply stunning! Thanks for your white on white version and your details on how you make it. I will be doing a wedding card for a friend's daughter, and I would like to CASE your card style, although will make some minimal changes in sentiments and pearls to rhinestones. Beautiful!

What a gorgeous card! I have been on the fence about ordering this bundle, you may have been able to persuade me! I love the white on white and I am sure the shadows are stunning in real life! Thanks for letting Stampin' Celebration help inspire you!

That heart is gorgeous and I love the sweet little flowers as embellishments! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Stampin' Celebration!

Beautiful card! I usually like lots of color and high contrast, but this card has so much texture it needs no colors. Love how you inset the heart back into the background after removing all of the confetti of cuttings. It's so elegant without being blingy. TFS!
