Great Love Valentine’s Day Card

I send cards every 4-6 weeks to the young people from our church who are serving either an 18 month or two year mission for the church.  They are away from home and it is always nice to get a message of encouragement and support.  Since this month is February, I decided to sent a love themed card.  I love this Penny Black stamp set, All Great Things, because it has great quotes.  This one is from Mother Teresa.  We all can do small things with love that will help others around us.  The world would be a better place if we did it a little more consistently.

I die cut a large heart using a Spellbinder Classic Hearts die from Gina K. Designs Red Hot 120# Cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and then heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  I was adhered on the left of the front of a side folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Small white hearts were die cut using the Impression Obsession Heart of Heart Die.  I really like this die for small hearts since it has both solid and open heart.  They were scattered around the large heart and adhered using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  Using the same red cardstock the word love from Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Love was die cut and adhered to the right of the heart with the same glue.  To add more dimension and interest I pulled out some heart dies from Papertrey Ink Heart Prints and Simon Says Stamp Holiday Shapes and embossed them around the large heart using the Spellbinders embossing pad.

A clean and simple card that has a big punch with the bright red and white mix of colors.

I am a very blessed wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. I firmly believe in the quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf which states "The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human heart." Every day I try to create something that lifts the heart for myself and others.
