I Love You Coffee, XOXO
Isn’t this coffee cup the cutest thing!? Normally, I would have the little sweetheart hugging her coffee but I thought the image would make for a CAS style Valentine’s card. I stamped and masked the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added RV29 to every other cup and then stamped and heat embossed the little xoxo image with white embossing powder. Then I used Nuvo Sherbert Shimmer Glitter drops to “color” the remaining coffee cups. I stamped and heat embossed Love You to a black sentiment strip and adhered it under the coffee cups. To finish the card, I added three Sweet & Tart Heart Sprinkles and adhered the card panel with foam tape to red card stock.
Will you be my Valentine?
I love that the matching dies for the Seasonal Sweetheart makes just the right cuts to place all the fun little images into her hands. After coloring with Copics and a White Signo Pigment Ink pen, I tucked the little heart with the heat embossed xoxo into her arm. For the background, I used stacking heart dies to die cut the heart into a red card stock panel and another heart die cut from white card stock. I adhered the white heart into the red heart inlay and added the Love You sentiments. To finish the card, I adhered the little sweetheart with dimensional foam tape.
Love & Sweet Wishes
This was a fun card to put together. I love using little elements from cards to create backgrounds and I thought it would be fun to create a side background banner with the pinwheel sucker and heart images in the set. I used RV29, RV17 and RV23. For extra pop, I added Peppermints Candies and Sweet & Tart Heart Sprinkles embellishments to the banner. To finish the card, I added some red & white striped washi tape to the card panel and then adhered the background banner over the washi. Then I added the white heat embossed sentiment strips with foam adhesive to the card panel.
