I’ve been really enjoying Valentine colors, especially Raspberry Fizz. This card works perfectly for the Crazy 4 Challenges Pretty in Pink challenge this week. I also wanted to play around with the DCRU sketch one more time and decided to make an easel card. These are such fun cards and so easy! For this easel, I did a standard card size. My card base was 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, with scores at 4 1/4 and 6 3/8.
I chose the really adorable “Will You Be My Valentine?” set from SUINK. They started selling off their stamp set stock late last year. As of this morning, as I type this, this set is still in stock. You can get the ridiculous bargain of 23 stamps for $3.00!! Go here! I stamped the boy and girl (individual stamps) facing each other, ready to present their valentines to each other. The young man is clearly secure, as he is wearing a pink shirt and bright pink bow tie! 🙂 The young lady’s dress collar and trim are Petal Pink Liquid Pearls.
Using my heart Nestabilities, I cut out the smallest scallop and regular heart in Raspberry Fizz and Pretty in Pink. I mounted them on a piece of May Arts double pink ribbon and ultimately on a panel of Pretty in Pink embossed with my favorite Swiss Dots. The hearts remind me of one of those decorative wall hangings. To finish off the ribbon, I added a pretty little bow at the very top. Three little heart brads complete the front panel.
Inside, I used an additional 3 small hearts as the easel for the card. I stamped along the bottom with the XOXO stamp from the set in Raspberry Fizz.
