I started by stamping the image on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the image in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.
Next, I used the Petite Hearts Stencil and some white texture paste to add texture to some Neenah Solar White card stock. I let this panel dry for about half an hour, then adhered it on some white top-folding card base.
The hearts were die-cut using the Heart Frames Die Set with the new Love & Woofs Paper Pad and last year’s Valentine release, Love & Meows Paper Pad. The flag banner was cut using my precision snips to add the fishtail, and adhered on the card with liquid glue. I adhered the hearts with the tape runner, and added the focal image.
Don’t you just love the pattern papers by Newton’s Nook Designs?! They all go perfectly well together!
I finished my card design by stamping the sentiment and adding some puffy heart stickers for added texture and interest. Here’s another look:
