Valentine's Day Card

Images copywrite Stampin' Up!
I am sticking to my Occasionally theme with this Valentine's Day card. The Occasionally stamp set (reduced to $41.48) has several sayings or phrases in it 'Thank You', 'My Mum', 'Dear Dad' and 'xoxoxo' as well as all the 24 images, so it is easy to make a variety of cards for many themes, eg Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day, thank you cards.
To create the lines on this card I have placed my card stock upside down in the paper trimmer and scored using the bone folder. This is a great way to add interest to your card whilst still keeping the card simple.
I have added the Flower Ribbon Slide from the Silver Hodgepodge currently 25% off at $51.71. They are simply gorgeous.
To get the brad look on the hearts I have stamped and then punched out the image with the 3/4" circle punch, attached them with a dimensional to add height and finally put Crystal Effects on top. It is wise to put the Crytal Effects on last as it can take a couple of hours to dry. Once it is dry you can add more and more layers depending on the effect that you desire.
Materials used:
Stamp set: Occasionally ($41.48 until 24th January 2010)
Ink: So Saffron, Handsome Hunter and Bravo Burgundy
Card Stock: Whisper White and Brocade Blue
Accessories: Silver Hodgepodge ($51.71 until 24th January 2010), dimensionals, Brocade Blue ribbon, bone folder, paper trimmer and the eyelet border punch.

Have fun stampin' today.
