You Make Life Sweet

I didn’t get to make as many Valentine cards as I wanted this year because of being sick and jumped right into spring.  I had a stamp set from Impression Obsession that I have been wanting to use and it seemed a good mix with the theme of love so I decided to add a bit of a Valentine look to this card.

I found this lovely striped cardstock at Tuesday Morning (fun place to browse around) and layered it on a light green card base.  The light pink and deeper pink hearts were cut on the Cricut.  I embossed the darker heart and sponged red ink on top of the image and around the edges.  I sponged red ink around the edges of the light pink heart and after embossing the darker heart I sponged the same ink over the image and around the edges.  These were layered onto the front of the card.  The green border at the bottom of the card is another new Martha Stewart punch.  It has the most beautiful scrolled hearts.

I used a Nellie Snellen die to cut the scalloped oval out of light pink cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in red and sponged a little red ink around the edges.  I added some cute ribbon with the words “yummy” on it behind the sentiment and used foam tape to adhere it to the front of the card.  I stamped the cupcakes in black ink and colored them with my Tombow markers.  I cut them out and used foam tape again to add them to the card.  The sentiment and all the cupcake stamps are from Impression Obsession’s clear stamp set - MC181 Cupcakes.  What a “sweet” set!!
