True Love Lasts Forever



With my new My Creative Time's "You Had Me At Chocolate" stamp set and my Sweethearts cartridge, I'm on a roll with my Valentine's Day cards! This is an A7 size card. The card base is cut at 10 x 7 1/8", scored at 5". The pink layer is 4 3/4" x 6 7/8". To make an "indoor scene", I cut the striped "wallpaper" at 4" x 4 1/2". This was slightly overlapped by the white cardstock, which was cut at 3" x 4 1/2" and run through the Stripes Cuttlebug folder.


The couple at the table is cut from Sweethearts at 4 1/4". I ran the woman's shirt through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.


The oval frame for my sentiment is from French Manor. I used my Gypsy to hide the circles that would be cut out of it and cut it once at 2.23" x 0.43" and once at 2.36" x 0.49". I just love the font for Emma's My Creative Time stamps! Click here for ordering information.


I used my Kreate-a-Lope to create my A7 size envelope from the Recollections "All Girl" paper pad. Those thick pads of thin patterned paper work great with the Kreate-a-Lope. It's also a bargain: I can make 180 envelopes for $9.00!
