How to create simple love cards using Stampin' Up! Musical Season

Today’s Simple Saturday love card was inspired by the gorgeous card below by Michelle Gleason, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community.  CASE-ing a card (Copy And Share with Everyone) makes card making a snap!

I redesigned Michelle’s card with Island Indigo as my key color (and Whisper White, of course) and used Musical Season Stamp Set and Musical Instruments Framelits Dies for my focal point.

  • All you need is “love.”  You can isolate peace, joy and love from the sentiment.  You could use a Stampin’ Write Marker and color directly to the rubber of the word of your choice or just hide part of it below the instruments.  My lute hides the word “joy” and the balance was cropped with one of the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.

  • Essential essentials!  For everyday framing of images and sentiments, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies are a favorite. The little “stitches” are a classy accent.
  • Just one!  I used the large single stem from Flourish Thinlits Dies and split it so that it would show above and below the squares.

  • Pearl Basic Jewels are the perfect touch for dressing up the stems.

This is definitely the year for mixed metals in fashion, home decor and paper crafting.  The combination of silver, copper and even a touch of gold bring a yummy richness to this holiday card.

  • “Season’s Greetings” (Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set) was heat embossed with Stampin’ Up! Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

  • The stitched oval die cut is from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  You’ll want to use the Big Shot Magnetic Platform to keep the die in place over the sentiment during it’s journey through the Big Shot.

  • I added a snowflake die cut (Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies) from Copper Foil Sheets.  A self-adhesive Gold Faceted Gem bumps up the sparkle factor!
  • A pre-cut silver snowflake from Foil Snowflakes (one of My Favorite Things from the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog) is layered over a dry embossed snowflake created with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

  • I wrapped Copper Metallic Thread around three of my fingers repeatedly to loop it and adhered to the bottom of the oval sentiment with Glue Dots.
