Or is that Money Doesn't Grow on Trees? Well, anyway ... today it's Love! I've made another valentine Card today for my From Our Hearts Valentine Challenge. Read the details of this challenge by clicking on the link above. And it's not too late to get in the game -- you just need to send at least 5 Cards to Marti at From Our Hearts by December 20th!
I've brought back an old, favorite set -- Season of Friendship -- and put a new twist on it as a tree of hearts!
I stamped the trunk in Crumb Cake and then added leaves of Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. I punched the glittery hearts out of the new Glimmer Paper (available in the Occasions Mini Catalog beginning January 4th), using the Small Heart Punch. I applied a Big Shot Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of the 12x12 sheet of Glimmer Paper first, so that each tiny heart that is punched out is also self-adhesive -- Love it! Don't know if you can see the glimmer in the photo or not, but this paper really Shines! Everytime I look at it, it reminds me of Dorothy's Glass Slippers in the Wizard of Oz!
The sentiment is from the Stamp Set Valentine Defined (also in the Occasions Mini) and I punched it out with a Small Oval Punch, layering it on a Large Oval Punchie of Pretty in Pink and a Scallop Oval Punchie of Real Red.
I used the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder to create texture and interest with the polka dots and mounted everything with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I think that will do it for today. I do hope you'll help us out and send some cards to From Our Hearts for the Valentine Challenge! Our military personnel and their families are so appreciative of the beautiful hand-made cards they are able to enjoy because of your generosity and compassion!
