BSS MONDAY IDEA - Slim Line Cards for Valentines Day

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Hello friends.  Well, Valentines Day will be here before we know it.
So, I made two slimline Valentines this week.

                Pink Card
Stamps -- Sentiment - Heffy Doodle (HFD 0229) More classic Sentiments
Dies - Kelly Alpha Uppercase Pink Fresh (PFSA1619)
Hearts - Penny Black - Your Love (51-591
Heart Paper from my stash from last year.
I used the edge of a square doily to frame the designer paper on the front
Card is 3 1/2x7 inches  I bought a ream of 81/2 by 14 inch card stock for a
project awhile back, and I thought how fun it would be to make a tent fold
slimeline card. I folded it in half the long way, and then cute the 3 1/2 inch width
for the card.

                Red Card

Stamps - Sentiment- Photo Play (5152147) You
When I cut the alpha letters for the first card, I placed them
evenly spaced on the gold mirror sheet, and cut them out.  This left
me with the negative of the letters.  All I had to do was cut out an even
rectangle, back it with red card stock, and I ran it through a Crafters Companion
Rainbow Hearts 3D embossing folder.  
I needed to save the oval from the "o" and glue it in place.

Used a Gina Marie slimline stitched rectangle from striped card stock.
Inside, I stamped the sentiment in gold embossing powder and used
a strip of the Designer Paper on the edge.

Hope this put you in the mood to make some Valentines.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good week. Stay Safe.
