CASEing Coast to Coast: A Boho Indigo Valentine

Welcome to the first CASEing Coast to Coast of 2021. Each month, Karen Hallam, in CA and I, in PA have been taking turns CASEing (copy and selectively edit) each other’s projects.  To change it up a little, this year we’ll be adding a theme to each month’s project.  Our theme today is Valentine’s Day…

Stampin Up Slimline Meant To Be Valentine Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I went the non-traditional route on my slimline Valentine card.  When I was looking through my patterned papers, nothing very Valentine-y caught my attention.  So I turned to my favorite color and one of my favorite Designer Series Paper collections, Boho Indigo.  This paper is part of the Boho Indigo Product Medley.  However, I just purchased the refill kit, as I was really only interested in the paper and embellishments.

The Very Vanilla card base measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ with the Misty Moonlight panel measuring 8 3/8′ x 3 3/8″.  The top Very Vanilla panel measures 8 1/4″ x 3 1/4″.  I cut 4 strips of DSP to 1/4″ and 2 strips of Misty Moonlight card stock to 1/8″ to create the center background.  The DSP is 6″ x 6″ so it was necessary to have a seam in the center but the middle heart covered it.

Using various heart dies from the Stitched Be Mine dies, I cut 2 patterned hearts from the DSP.  I then cut 12 of the scalloped frame hearts from Misty Moonlight card stock.  I layered 4 of these together to create each scalloped heart for some dimension.  The center heart is stamped with a sentiment from the Meant to Be stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink.  Lastly, for some added detail, I added some tiny pearls to the flower centers.  I’m pretty sure these are retired SU pearls.  I’m actually on the hunt for more of this size.

I used the Forever and Always stamp set for the inside sentiment.  I love this set and can’t wait to use it on an entire card.  A little DSP added to each side is a simple yet pretty way to add some interest.

I purchased a box of cream colored and white resume envelopes from an office supply store for my slimline cards.  These envelopes are slightly bigger than I need for this size card but they have a nice quality feel and texture. So I’m ok with a little wiggle room!

  1. Beautiful card, Rosanne. I love the three hearts on the slimline card. So pretty. Enjoy your day!

  2. Oh My, I just have to say first . . . your calendar wreaths are outstanding. I received mine yesterday. Anyone on the fence should definitely get one of these before they are all gone.
    Blue is my favorite color also, and I hope to CASE this card, and Karen’s, for our Anniversary in a few days and one for Valentine’s Day!
    Have a blessed day.

  3. This was a fun card to CASE, Rosanne! Thanks for the inspiration! I don’t think I would have thought to pull out the Boho Indigo, but it made for a very pretty card so I’m glad you did! Happy Valentine’s Day!
