This LOVE card can be created for Valentine's Day, for an anniversary, a wedding or just for someone special! 

I used the Falling Petals embossing folder for the background of this sweet card, and got my inspiration from page 50 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.

You can use this embossing folder background to look like falling petals, or like hearts rising from the bottom of the card.  I elected to use it to look like hearts!

I embossed 4" x 5-1/4" panels of Soft Sky and Pool Party with the Falling Petals embossing folder and then mixed and matched and used Fast Fuse to adhere them to Soft Sky and Pool Party top folding cards.  I liked the various monochromatic blue tones achieved by combining these 2 colors.

For the focal point on this card I combined several Stampin' Up! products.  I layered these on top of the embossed piece:

  • a "flag" using the Sending Love Glassine sheets, pg 14, #142734 (end punched with Triple Banner punch)
  • on top of the flag: Lace Doily, pg 51, #142793
  • on top of the doily: die cut leaves with Crumb Cake cardstock & May Flowers framelits, pg 194 #140276
  • on top of the leaves: die cut heart with Soft Suede cardstock & Sunshine Wishes thinlits, pg 194, #141489
  • on top of the heart: "flag" using Very Vanilla cardstock, end punched with Triple Banner punch
  • on top of the flag: "love" die cut with Crumb Cake cardstock and Sunshine Wishes thinlits, pg 194, #141489
  • embellishments: as shown below, I used both the Falling in Love embellishments, pg 51 #142791, and the Sending Love embellishments, pg 15, #142735

 Multipurpose glue #110755 was the best adhesive for most of these layers.

I am going to try this card in Red and White so that it looks a little more "Valentiney" (is that a word?). 

What color combo would you use?
