Bold Gingham Valentine

Stampin Up Meant to Be Valentine Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

Today’s card features my favorite card making technique…paper piecing. I totally relax when putting together cards like this. It’s just like doing a jigsaw puzzle for me. And this card came together exactly as I envisioned it.

As soon as I saw the cluster of hearts in the Be Mine Stitched Framelits, I was sold on the Meant to Be Bundle. There are other great framelits in this set but this is the ONE that did it for me!

Red, white and black is among my favorite color combinations. The black and white gingham was just the icing on the cake! It’s a pattern included in the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper that is FREE during Sale-a-bration.

The sentiment is from another set in the Occasions Catalog, Vibrant Vases and is heat embossed.

The inside sentiment is from the Meant to Be stamp set and the sentiment on the envelope front is from the retired set, Good Greetings.

Thanks for stopping in today and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Take care,

  6. I love your card; the colors, the red and gingham hearts, the design, it is really nice.

  7. I just love this card, I need to know how did you get the paper to fit so perfectly in the small hearts?

    • Thanks Donna…Using the framelit, I cut it out in each color and then placed the hearts back into each space. It’s much like doing a puzzle.

  8. Can you give instructions of how you did the backgrounds of the hearts? The black, red, and gingham? Are they colored with markers, or did you cut out pieces of CS/DSP to go behind them? How did you adhere them? Thank you so much, I would really like the instructions on that portion of your beautiful card.

  9. Thanks, that makes sense now.
    I just love that card!
