Valentines Day is just around the corner!

Don't despair, I have the solution! With a few Stampin' Up! punches, glitter paper, and inks you could whip up this card in no time at all.

A bit of Dazzling Diamond glitter on the wings of the heart, a few rhinestones and pearls dotted over the card and it's done.

Card Recipe

Baja Breeze cardstock
Pretty in Pink cardstock
White Vellum cardstock
Whisper White cardstock
Glitter paper
Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel and handle
Artistic Etchings Stamp Set
Petal Card Double Punch
1-3/4 (4.4cm) Scallop Punch
Large Oval Punch
Scallop Oval Punch
Basic Gray Classic Ink Pad
Real Read Classic Ink Pad
Crumb Cake Classic Ink Pad
Petal Cone Die

  • Cut the Baja Breeze cardstock in half to A5
  • Fold this in half to create your card blank
  • Using the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel and Handle and Basic Gray Classic Ink Pad Stamp the background of the card.
  • Punch out the ingredients of the topper - Scallop Circle  in Pretty in Pink, two Scallop Ovals from the White Vellum, one Petal Card Double Punch in Glitter paper, and one Banner from the Petal Cone Die.
  • From the Petal Card snip off two of the petals to create the heart.

  • From the Scallop Oval Punch out place in the Large Oval Punch so that half of the outer edge is punched off and you are left with a smooth side and a scalloped edge.

  • Ink the edges of the scallop circle , banner die in Real Red
  • Run a line of glue around the edges of the wings and add detail to the wings, cover with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
  • Stamp the crown from the Artistic Etchings Stamp Set with Crumb Cake on whisper white cardstock  in and cut out.
  • Assemble these pieces as shown in the card.
  • Finally finish off  by adding a few rhinestones and pearls dotted over the card.
I hope you have fun making this card.
