Black and White Valentine or Anniversary Card using Forever & Always Stamp Set


  • Stampin' Up! Forever & Always Stamp Set
  • Always Dies coordinate with the Forever & Always Stamp Set
  • Watch the Love You Always Suite Video

It isn't often that I see a card so striking that I dash to my craft room to case it.  Today's card is just such a card.  I'm Casing Kylie Bertucci's stunning card.  She is an extremely talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Australia, and I think you'll agree that her design is perfection.  It uses the dies from Always Dies, part of the Forever & Always Bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.  Its paired with prints from the True Love Designer Series Paper -- one stripes; another flowers.  A few Frosted & Clear Epoxy droplets complete the layout.

The card uses a basecard of Basic Black Cardstock.  Then a layer of a striped print from the True Love Designer Series Paper.  The image layer is also Basic Black Cardstock matted with a layer of Basic White.

I selected a floral print from the True Love Designer Series Paper (there are several to choose from) and fussy cut these lovely black and white flowers to use on my image layer. .

Then I selected the Love Die from the Always Dies set along with its drop shadow die,  I added Adhesive Sheets to the back of the Basic Black Cardstock for the letters Love   I die cut the drop shadow out of Basic White Cardstock.  They can be run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine at the same time.  I layered the Love letters onto the Basic White drop shadow and then added Dimensionals to the back.  To finish the image layer, I added Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets.
