Valentine for Paisley

 Hello friends! I hope you are all staying healthy. I had a possible contact with someone who tested positive so I am self monitoring and staying home for 10 days. I feel fine so I'm not concerned. The really sad thing is I have to stay away from my grandbaby. I totally understand it but it is hard to not be able to see her.

Last night we had a Zoom team meeting and did another mystery card stamping. I really love these challenges. We were given dimensions to cut and were to come up with a card. Here is a picture of the mystery card dimensions followed by the card I created.

We weren't told whether the pieces should be cardstock or DSP so I did a little of both.

I started with a Blushing Bride card base. For the two larger pieces I used a piece of Real Red cardstock and on top of that I added a piece of DSP from the Sweet Talk DSP set. I attached this to the card using dimensionals.

For the smaller pieces, I cut up some more DSP. The piece I used is the reverse of the larger piece I placed on the Real Red cardstock. I added these pieces directly to the card front using adhesive.

For my two inch circle piece, I substituted a heart instead. I wanted this card to be a Valentine's card for my older granddaughter, Paisley. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set using Real Red ink on a scrap of Basic White cardstock. I then cut it out using the heart die from Floral Heart Dies set. This heart is actually the inside of the floral heart but it works perfect like this. I added my heart to the center of my card using dimensionals.

To complete the card, I added some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment heart. Paisley loves all of the bling. Actually, she would probably prefer if I added another 20 jewels to her card. She is my "more is better" girl.

What I used for today's card:

Happy & Heartfelt Stamp

Blushing Bride Cardstock

Real Red Cardstock

Basic White Cardstock

Sweet Talk DSP

Real Red Classic Stampin' Pad

Floral Heart Dies

Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I think Paisley will like it although, like I said before, she would probably prefer a lot more rhinestones on it. This will be the first time that I am making her card very different from her brother's. Being twins, I usually make them very similar cards. For this Valentine's day at least, they will have very different cards.

Stay well and keep creating!
