Happy Valentine's Day (3)

This is an award-winning design from Nancy Riley. The only differences in mine are that hers said Happy Valentine's Day and had a fun brad on it where I have the zig zag strip of Lucky Limeade DSP, and I forgot to add a cute little Calypso Coral heart over the Wisteria Wonder heart. To view Nancy's blog, visit iSTAMP by Nancy Riley. Scroll down the page to read about the award Nancy won for this design.


Stamp Set:
* Sweetheart

* Lucky Limeade card stock (8-1/2" x 5-1/2")
* Calypso Coral card stock (3/4" x 5-1/2")
* Wisteria Wonder card stock (enough for Heart)
* Berry Blossoms DSP (5-1/2" x 7/8" (Multi with Basic Black background); 2-3/4" x 1-1/4" (Calypso Coral); 2-3/4" x 1/2" (Lucky Limeade)
* Whisper White card stock (4-1/4" x 2-3/4")

* Jet Black StazOn

* Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
* Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits Die
* Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die
* Scallop Edge Punch
* SNAIL Adhesive
* Tombow Multi-purpose Liquid Glue

(Unless otherwise noted, SNAIL Adhesive used throughout)

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

2. Stamp images on Whisper White card stock; adhere to front of card.

3. Cut heart from to Wonder card stock with Big Shot and Embosslits Die. Use Tombow glue to adhere inside stamped heart.

4. Adhere Calypso Coral DSP to front of card below Whisper White card stock; cut zig zag from Lucky Limeade DSP with Big Shot and Tasteful Trim Die; use Tombow glue to adhere to front of card where Whisper White meets Calypso Coral.

5. Trim long edge of Calypso Coral card stock with Scallop Edge Punch; adhere to back of 5-1/2" x 7/8" DSP. Adhere to front of card to the left of Whisper White card stock.

That's it! Pretty easy, huh?!

BTW -- I had an opportunity to meet Nancy Riley at the Regional Conference in Phoenix this past Saturday. What a nice lady!!!

Hope you have fun with her card.
