Valentine Countdown #9: Awesome You!

I think that Valentine's Day can be a great time to let some wonderful people in your life know just how much you appreciate them. So, gushy lovey-dovey stuff aside, here is a card to give to a dear friend, teacher, coach, or family member.

This also happens to be a card I made for a swap I was in recently, so it filled a double duty :) It uses two of the current Sale-A-Bration items you can earn right now. The Botanicals For You stamp set and the Botanical Gardens vellum stack!

Here is how I made this card:
  • Cut a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock to 4"x5¼", then emboss with the Fluttering embossing folder. Cut a piece of Pretty Petals DSP to 2"x5¼" and adhere to the left side of the embossed panel. Outline with Signo whtie gel pen, adhere panel to a Thick Whisper White card base. 
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White scrap to 2¼"x3½", then round the corners. Cut a piece of Botanical Gardens vellum to 2¾"x4" and round the corners. Wipe vellum with embossing buddy, then stamp the "Just for you" with Versamark. Sprinkle the top part of the sentiment with Silver embossing powder and tap off excess. Then sprinkle the rest of the sentiment with Gold embossing powder and tap off the excess. Heat with heat tool until melted. Put adhesive behind the embossed sentiment and adhere to the white panel. Apply dimensionals to the back of the white panel and adhere to the card front. 
  • Inside, stamp the sentiment in Archival Black ink, then stamp the flower in Calypso Coral centered beneath the sentiment. Stamp the leaves in Mossy Meadow on each side of the flower.
  • All Done!
I love the way the embossed colors flow together!

What a cute accent that flower makes, don't you think? I know that I am thrilled to have earned this set for free during Sale-A-Bration! Do you want to earn some free stuff for yourself?
