A Valentine with Seasonal Sayings and Hearts A Flutter from Stampin' Up!

Today's project was created for a few challenges (which I promptly forgot to enter).  Ugh...

The first challenge was the Freshly Made Sketches #122:

Another challenge I was planning to enter this card in was The Shabby Tea Room, #204, "All that Glitters in Love" challenge:

Finally, I successfully (!) entered this card in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, #307, which was "Lots of Love."  Nothing like getting totally sidetracked and missing challenge deadlines!

I am loving the Glimmer Paper and I've got a couple of fun new ideas to share in the coming weeks.  It's such a simple product to use with my Stampin' Trimmer (#126889) or my Big Shot (#113439).  Below, I used my Hearts A Flutter framelits for the banner (#130159).  My 7/8-inch Scallop Circle (#129404) punched three times gives me the bloom and I finished it off with a Basic Rhinestone brad (they're retired, but you could easily use a Large Rhinestone Basic Jewel (#129324).

"Love you" is inked in Strawberry Slush and stamped on Whisper White from the Seasonal Sayings set (W131937, C128009) and the heart comes from the Hearts A Flutter set (a match made in Heaven with the coordinating framelits! W131922, C129252).  

The Whisper White piece has opposing corners rounded using the 3/16-inch Corner Punch (#119871) and is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Finally, I used my Simply Scored tool (#122334) to make the raised bevel around the outline of the card base for dimension.
