Welcome to our first CASEing Coast to Coast for 2022. Karen Hallam in CA and myself here in PA have been enjoying this monthly creative adventure for several years now. Each month we take turns choosing the idea to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit). I’m starting the year off with a Valentine themed card…
Having three grown daughters, I certainly need a few pretty feminine Valentine’s card. So only two more to go!
I’ve recently discovered that my new favorite way to create is to reach into my stash of all different products and combine them to come up with a project that I’m happy with. This one absolutely fits that bill! The pretty floral paper from a 6 x 6 Echo Park paper pad. The scalloped cover dies are from Gina Marie Designs and the sentiment is from SU’s Meant to Be stamp set. I also used the coordinating Be Mine Stitched dies to create the heart shaped window. The ribbons came from my stash and just so happened to match the Flirty Flamingo cardstock.
If you’re a Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin fan, you may recognize the inside sentiment. It’s from the January 2021 kit, Sending Hearts.
I’m showing the envelope alone here because I like the envelope almost as much as the card!
If you haven’t already been out West to see Karen’s Valentine, you can find it HERE. Once again, thanks for taking today’s cross country stamping trip with us. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as Karen and I enjoy doing it.
