Sent With Love

It's my turn for the Papertrey Ink Flash Sale and since it's December, that means it will be a Valentine's Day theme! My card for today features the adorable All You Need Is Love stamp set! I took December off last year so this is actually the first time I have ever used this set and I absolutely LOVE it! This tiny envelope image would also be so cute for Christmas tags and cards! I think I might just leave it out and make some cute tags with it or something!

For this card I knew I wanted an overall postal theme so I chose to use the Border Bling: Postage Frames Die for the background and then layered up all kinds of fun things to pull this card together!

To begin, I die cut all of the pieces and then stamped them using reds, pinks, and corals! I die cut everything twice so I have enough left over to make another card! Yay! 

The base of the envelope and the flap are two separate dies and images so it makes tucking everything in a breeze! I layered the two pieces onto the largest heart in the Love to Layer: Hearts die collection, cut from Pure Poppy cardstock, and then added that to the largest rectangle in the Love to Layer: Rectangles die collection.

I added all of the stamped pieces here and there. I would recommend stamping the cute little flourishes coming out of the heart BEFORE you add the envelope. I did it after, but it was a little tricky, so do that before if you can.

I arranged the three pink hearts around the envelop for added detail. I added the postage frame on a top-folding A2 cardbase using foam squares and then layered everything on top of that. I added a touch of glitter for some sparkle and shine! Thanks for fluttering by!
P.S. I mentioned at the beginning of today's post that I took last December off and I am doing the same this year. I have SO many stamp/die sets that I have purchased for my personal use that are just sitting there (like YEARS worth) and I am planning on taking some "me" crafty time and pull them out and do some Christmas crafting! I will be sure to share everything here! But first.... finish decorating for Christmas! ha ha!
