February Newsletter

I’m excited to share the valentine’s card that I made using Bold Block, – Love Hand MC1208-G, and Hugs and Kisses, MW0672-D. The Heart/Hand stamp is stamped in maroon ink on white cardstock and cut out with a square die-cut that is 1/4″ bigger on all 4 sides, then layered on maroon cardstock and a final layer of white cardstock. A piece of maroon cardstock is cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ and, after embossing with a heart folder, is layered on a white card base. The word stamp, “Hugs and Kisses” is stamped on white cardstock, trimmed on the ends, and layered over a maroon piece that has been cut out with a punch. It is then layered on a white piece that has been cut with a die-cut. Both layered pieces are mounted on the maroon heart embossed piece using dimensional as shown in the picture below.
