Another Valentine Card with Meant to Be Stamp Set

Stampin' Up! Meant To Be

I'm still not finished with all my Valentine's Card.  Are You?  Here's a design I created today that is very, very simple, yet looks amazing.  It uses the Stampin' Up! Meant To Be Stamp Set, the All My Love Designer Series Paper, and a ribbon and epoxy hearts from the All My Love Suite from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog plus papers from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog  

I used a basecard of Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I wasn't sure I would like this color as much as I did once I started using it this year.  I'm so happy Stampin' Up! added it as one of the new In Colors.  Then I used a layer of Whisper White.  Next, for my image layer I used All My Love Designer Series Paper. 


The sentiment is from the Meant To Be Stamp Set.  I die cut the largest circle from Whisper White using the Stitched Shapes Framelit and stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick.  I also selected the swirl or flowers boarder from the same set and stamped it under the sentiment.  Below that, I added three of the smallest Heart Epoxy Droplets from the All My Love suite on Pg 5 of the Occasions catalog. 

The bow on the card uses All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack from the All My Love Suite.  It includes two different ribbons.  I used the 1/3" Lovely Lipstick ribbon with the white stitched edge for my card.    

If you're still deciding on your Valentine stamp sets for this year's cards, the Meant To Be Stamp set along with the All My Love Designer Series Paper is a great purchase.  I love that the All My Love Designer Series Paper includes several prints that can be used long after Valentine's Day is over.  You'll find this paper package to be a great value for Valentines and beyond. However, you'll want to order your Valentine's stamp sets this week so they reach you in time for you to make handmade cards for your loved ones.  Remember that each $50 order earns you a free selection from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

How do I create such beautiful bows?

I'm often asked how I create such beautiful bows for my cards, like the one on the card above.  Several years ago my husband made me a small, wooden bow maker with a couple of wooden pegs that store in the end of the wood block when not in use.

Create bows of many sizes.
