Rose Wonder Birthday cardSUPPLIES:
Rose Wonder Photopolymer Bundle #140804
Ink:  Rose Wonder
Cherry Cobbler
Card Stock:  Rose Red
Whisper White
Big Shot:  Rose Garden Thinlits (See Bundle above)

Adhesives:  Glue Dots
Stampin’ Dimensionals
Other:  Paper Snips or scissors to cut out the Fun Frame
Baby Wipe or wet paper towel to remove some of the ink from embossing folder

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Rose Red card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Put your card front inside the Polka Dot embossing folder folding the card back under the embossing folder.  Run through your Big Shot.
2.  Stamp your four Flowers with Rose Red ink using the Rose Wonder Flower that coordinates with the Thinlit.  I did use the Precision Base Plate with my Big Shot to cut these flowers out.  Cut all four flowers out using your Big Shot and the coordinating Thinlit.
3.  Choose the words you want on your card, then choose the Fun Frame embossing folder that your words fit in.  Stamp your words in Cherry Cobbler ink on Rose Red card stock making sure you have enough room for your Fun Frame.  You can see my choices.  Feel on the inside of your embossing folder for the side where the images sink down to leave indents (not being raised above the plastic).  Take your Cherry Cobbler ink pad and run it over your embossing folder on the side where the images sink down.  Make sure all the flat parts which include the dots and the inner frame lines and outer frame lines are covered with ink.  If you are like me, you will have ink covering most of the inside of the Frame where you want to stamp your image.  Take a baby wipe or wet paper towel or tissue and wipe away the ink from places you don’t want it.  Remoisten the ink on the embossing folder by opening your mouth wide and breathing on it.  Now insert your Rose Red card stock into the embossing folder so the stamped words are positioned in the Fun Frame where you want them and run through your Big Shot.  Run your embossing folder under running water to clean.  Cut out your Fun Frame using Paper Snips or scissors.
4.  Lay out your Flowers and Frame.  Decide where your Glitter Tape will go remembering that Stampin’ Dimensionals do not stick to the Glitter Tape.  Attach your Glitter Tape to your card front.  Attach your Flowers with 2 Glue Dots under the center small circles.  Attach your Fun Frame with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Put dots of Dazzling Details on each of the flower center circles.  Set aside to dry.
5.  You can use the Flower stamp to decorate your envelope OR you can emboss the envelope flap.  Watch this Video to learn how to emboss the envelope flap.

I Love You Valentine Card

This pretty, quick & easy I Love You Valentine Card is sure to be a hit.  You can change the card base and card front colors if this will go to a man.  Just make sure the color of your Hearts shows up well against the card front color.
I LOVE You Valentine CardSUPPLIES:
Card Stock:  Pink Pirouette
Red Glimmer Paper
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Big Shot:  Perfect Dots Embossing Folder
Little Letters Thinlits
Punch:  Sweetheart #
Adhesives:  Tombow Glue
Stampin’ Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Pink Pirouette card base at 5-1/2″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Pink Pirouette card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Run through your Big Shot using the Perfect Dots or other embossing folder.  Attach to card base.  I use Tombow Glue.
3.  Punch out 4 Hearts from Red Glimmer Paper using your Sweetheart Punch.
4.  Cut out your letters with the Little Letters Thinlits and your Big Shot.
~LOVE from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
~IYOU from Red Glimmer Paper
5.  Glue your LOVE onto your Hearts.  You might have to hold each letter in place for a bit until it starts to stick.  I found a pair of Craft Tweezers very helpful to hold the Letter while putting the Tombow on and placing it on the Heart where I wanted it.  Craft Tweezers stay closed until you pinch them open.
6.  Lay out your LOVE Hearts and the rest of your letters where you want them on your card front.  Glue the I YOU directly onto the card front.  Attach the LOVE Hearts with Dimensionals.

Happy Valentine Card Making!
