 A Golden Valentine Card

Create a Golden Valentine with the Most Adored Specialty Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty (2)

One of the most stylish options for a free gift (with a $50 product order) during Sale-A-Bration is the Most Adored Specialty Designer Series Paper.  One side is a playful mix of Real Red and Flirty Flamingo designs and the flip side is patterned with rich, gold foil and white.  I couldn’t wait to try the gold swirl and plaid together.  Most Adored Specialty Designer Series Paper is on the list of My Favorite Things for Sale-A-Bration gifts.

WHAT I LOVE!  I dialed up the gold details with gold cord, gold pearls and the gold foil “love you” words (die cut with the Love for You Dies).  TIP:  Save your gold foil!  Crop the gold “love you” words from one of the gold foil rectangles since the “negative” space where they are cut will be covered by the designer series paper.  No one will ever know!
