Modern Valentine

Published by at 2 40 am under Stampin' Up! Projects,Valentines

When I think of a Valentine, I naturally think in the realm of something nostaligic, vintage, old and pretty. Well, not today! I needed a third quick and simple card for my Hostess Club tomorrow. They loved the pocket hearts donelast week for an SCS challenge, so I went with that idea, but *modernized* this pocket heart when compared to this one I did last week. Here’s my modern version:


Simple and quick. The card is white, stamped with the Tres Chic background stamp in black. The heart template found herewas traced onto red cardstock, cut out and scored where indicated to make the folds. The cut out heart was stamped in red ink with the Sanded background stamp on both sides (necessary because the pocket that shows is the back side of the heart cutout). Edges were sponged just to finish them off a bit and 2 black brads were inserted to keep the closure together. Attaching the heart pocket to the card and adding the ribbon finishes it off!!! For inserts for the pocket I just stamped the heart from Always two times and cut out. They are loose in the pocket. I’ll let each girl make as many hearts as she wants for the pocket. Thought this would be a nice card for DH and/or Dad and everyone in the family could have their own heart in the pocket to sign and/or write a little mesage on.

That’s it for tonight!!! Thanks so much for stopping in!!! Havea great day!!! Oh, and thank you all, too, for letting me know you are receiving the Feedblitz notifications. I truly appreciate it!!! Thanks much!!!

    Too funny Sharon, I just realized I posted my comment on your Valentine Bundle instead of here, you should get a good laugh. This is the card I meant to leave “Beautiful with a sexy twist to it. Your hubby will love it.” What can I say, I’ve been distractedly lately!

  22. Susan says:

    Oh my, I admire your art, Sharon and I wanted to say that I just recieved the Tres Chic stamp, my neighbor’s part of a Stamp Club and I told her I would wait until her month to order it and so it’s been a loooooong time that I’ve waited. I get to play with it tonight. Your card here is a definite inspiration. Thanks very much.


    PS I am going to have to bookmark your blog~~~I’m tried of going through my gallery comments to *find* you.
