Valentine Day Card - Be Mine

Today I'm working ahead and making card samples for future classes.  At the end of the month the theme is Valentine's Day.  Here is one card for that class.  The second card will be shown under a separate post.

The colour scheme for Valentine's Day this year seems to be Real Red, Calypso Coral and Black.  All these colours have been used in this card.

The focal image was stamped with Basic Black on Whisper White cardstock and die cut using the Circle Framelits.  A Real Red mat was die cut using Starburst Framelits.  Some dazzling Detail was added around the perimeter of the white circle, because what's a Valentine's Day card without bling.

For the rest of the card, Calypso Coral cardstock was used as the base, layered with Whisper White which was embossed with the Lucky Hearts folder.  A 1 1/4" strip of striped Real Red and Calypso coral DSP from the Stacked with Love DSP pack was attached along the left side.  A 3/4" strip of mainly Calypso Coral DSP from the same DSP pack was notched at both ends and added to the lower part of the card.

The focal image was now attached to the card towards the left side.  The sentiment was stamped in Real Red and added just above the Calypso Coral notched strip.  Small heart punchies in Real Red, and Calypso coral, from the heart border punch, were added randomly above the sentiment.  Some Dazzling Details was placed on these as well.

Finally, some large rhinestones were attached to the Calypso Coral strip.  One was coloured Real Red, and the other Calypso Coral.
