Love themed card using (mostly) patterned papers

Hi guys, Valentine’s day is round the corner and I have a fun love themed card for you that uses several patterned papers and very little stamping.


Love you more - card using patterned papers

For this card, I used some really old supplies. The patterned papers you see here came from SSS April 2016 card kit (yes!). I still have a stash of these :-)

To start with, I die cut the word ‘love’ using Hero Arts Love Stamp and Cut set three times using two different patterned papers (left overs) and one from (leftover) black piece. I layered these together using glossy accents, while slightly offsetting each color. Here’s a closeup:

Next cut out one of the rectangular blocks from Simple Stories’ Life in Color collection 6×6 paper pad and rounded two of the opposite corners. I used one of the banner stickers from the same collection and stamped ‘YOU MORE’ on it using my trusted MISTI tool and archival black ink. I used the (really small) patterned paper pieces from paper that was left over after die cutting the word ‘love’ and made a few banners from it. Inspired by the Hero Arts stamp set, I also punched a heart in some of these banners.

Next I punched out several small hydrangea flowers and leaves using Martha Stewart punches. I used some papers from my stash here also – the yellow glitter paper and some left over pink paper. For the leaves, I actually used some packaging material (shhh… it’s our secret!)

I also die cut a large stitched rectangle from white card stock for the inside of this card, as I knew my card base was black.

Finally I assembled everything together using white wood-grain card stock, added silver stickles and dotted centers of my flowers using black stickles. That way the flowers match my patterned paper more nicely.

I also made a video of this process.


Here are some more still photos of this card:
