Hey friends! Happy Saturday! Welcome back to this edition of Weekender with Wanda on the Simon Says Stamp blog! SO happy to have you here with me for a bit of your weekend. Hope your week was outstanding. I live in Northern California and it was a weird week here. It was pouring rain for a few days, and then at the end of the week, our tulips started popping out of the ground and our camellias began blooming! Spring is coming early this year it looks like. The next couple of weeks are all about getting cards and treats ready for Valentine’s Day. Today I’m sharing a Valentine card in some non-traditional colors, using a few of my favorite exclusive products from Simon Says Stamp!
I used the pretty Stitched Daisies Dies to make some flowers out of kraft cardstock. My card base is also made from kraft, so it ties the project together. The pretty patterned papers are from Lawn Fawn and Pebbles. This sentiment is from one of my go-to stamp sets called Just a Love Note. This scripty font is so pretty.
For my flower centers I used cream cardstock and then gently inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then I used the Mini Hearts Dies to add some gingham hearts. You can never go wrong with gingham! For a softer look, I used brown ink to stamp my sentiment and also used cream cardstock instead of bright white.
My flowers were attached with foam squares and then I gently curved them up with my fingers.
I always appreciate you coming by to spend part of your weekend with me! So nice to see you again!
