Happy Valentine's Day (2)

This is a card I CASEd (kind of) from somewhere. I usually add the name of the artist when I find a great card, but this time I forgot to do that, and now I can't find it! So to whoever inspired this card -- a big THANKS. The original was actually somewhat different -- had music in the background instead of a printed page; had big black satin bow on it with the heart hanging from the bow -- but I just couldn't get into that bow! It overwhelmed the entire card. So this is my version.


Stamp set:
* Teeny Tiny Wishes

* Basic Black card stock (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"; 4-7/8" x 3-5/8"; scrap for Modern Label Punch)
* Sahara Sand card stock (5-1/4" x 4")
* First Edition DSP (4-4/8" x 3-3/8")
* Real Red card stock (enough for Heart Punch)
* Red Glimmer Paper (enough for Heart Punch)
* Very Vanilla card stock (scrap for Word Window Punch)

* Jet Black Staz-On

* Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
* Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder
* Full Heart Punch
* Modern Label Punch
* Word Window Punch
* Rhinestone self-adhesive jewels
* SNAIL Adhesive
* Stampin' Dimensionals
* Tombow Multi-purpose Liquid Glue

(Unless otherwise noted, SNAIL Adhesive used throughout)

1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Basic Black card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card.

2. Emboss Sahara Sand card stock with Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Embossing Folder. Adhere to front of card. Adhere 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" card stock over Sahara Sand; adhere DSP over Basic Black card stock.

3. Use Tombow to adhere Glimmer Heart to front of card; adhere Real Red Heart with Stampin' Dimensionals; adhere self-adhesive Rhinestone Jewel to Real Red Heart.

4. Stamp sentiment on Very Vanilla card stock; cut out with Word Window Punch. Punch Modern Label from Basic Black card stock. Adhere Word Window to Modern Label; add two small Rhinestone brads, and adhere to front of card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

That's it! A quick and easy valentine for a friend!
