Valentine's Season Begins
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and New Year’s celebration. I took a bit of a break from the blog the last week to spend time with family and begin to gear up for the Valentine’s season. Hard to believe we’re already moving on to the next holiday, but before you know it February will be here and we’ll be knee deep in hearts galore. One of my crafty new year’s resolutions is to use more of my background stamps and create my own backgrounds for cards. So today’s card was inspired by this resolution.
I started with Cranberry Tart card stock from Gina K. Designs for the card base. For the hearts background I used the Tiny Hearts background stamp set from My Favorite Things along with some Rhubarb Stalk ink from Memento. The ink matches the card stock color perfectly.
For the sentiment I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment from the Paper Hugs stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I just love that large bold sentiment which can serve as a focal on your card.
