I send very few Valentine's Day cards, so I don't usually purchase stamp sets that are geared towards Valentine's Day. I do love to have sets that can be used for Valentine's Day, though. I think this card, made with the stamp set 'Posted For You', can be sent for Valentine's Day, or any other time you want to send some love to someone. 💖
In order to get everything to line up perfectly, I first cut the card front out and punched the rectangle in it. Once that was done, I laid it over the card base and made a tiny pencil mark in the center of the of rectangle. After pulling the card front away, I used blending brushes to add color to the card front...being careful not to get ink too close to the edges (post it notes around the edges of the card helps). Don't you love the way the colors blend in the middle to make purple!? (It's one of my favorite things about this card)
Once the color was as deep as I wanted it, I used my Stamparatus to perfectly line the stamp on the card. I inked and stamped the 'LOVE' stamp twice, to make sure it was as clear as possible. I also used the stamparatus to stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the card front. (It did not need to be stamped twice)
Finally, I attached the card front to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I hope you are inspired to be creative today. Happy Stamping!
