Stamping With Friends Valentine's Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Valentine's Blog Hop as we share fun and creative ideas and projects to help inspire you. You will be visiting with our talented Design Team as they showcase Stampin' Up! products to help spark your creativity. 
For my Valentine's card, I chose to use the beautiful Love & Happiness Bundle from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I love the pretty embossing and coordinating dies in the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Love & Happiness stamp set has a wonderful assortment of beautiful sentiments for a variety of occasions.

Sentiment Label die cut with the Bouquet of Love Hybride Embossing Folder (Dies)
This clean and simple card design is easy to create and the combination of the embossed background and Gold embossing for the sentiment give it an elegant, romantic look. To create the card front, I embossed and die cut the Basic White cardstock layer with the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder to create the opening in the center. I repeated the same with the Blushing Bride cardstock layer so that the heart would fit inside the Basic White card front layer. Note: you can create a second card using the Blushing Bride cardstock layer as the card front and the Basic White embossed heart for the focal image. Using Clear Wink of Stella, I colored the raised embossed areas of the Blushing Bride Heart to add shimmer. I attached the card front and heart to the Blushing Bride card base with Stampin' Seal Adhesive so that they lay flat against the card base. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set with Gold embossing powder onto the sentiment label and attached it to the center of embossed heart with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the design, I added Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front and sentiment label for a touch of bling. It is a very simple card to create but has wonderful detail to give it that Wow factor.
