Stampin up valentine card occasions mini catalog idea simply scored

I reduced the overall size of the Melon Mambo card base to 4 3/4″ square.  This allows me to have the heart panel (5 3/8″ x 3 1/8″) extend beyond the width but still fit in a Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Medium Square Envelope.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool to add a subtle touch of embossing on both sides of the sentiment.

The heart stamp from P.S. I Love You (now available in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog) was heat embossed with Melon Mambo Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

I mixed (separately) a bit of Cherry Scented (Clear) Stampin’ Emboss Powder with the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  The recipient will get a pretty card with the scent of cherries!
