Be Mine!

Happy Wednesday!  I have a card to share today using the new inspiration photo from The Card Concept Challenge.   

A new challenge starts today at 
The Card Concept blog!  The theme is Be Mine Valentine!   Hope you can join us and play along.

I was inspired by the frames, colors, hearts, and dots.  I created a clean and layered styled card.  

I started with some select white card stock.  I stamped the heart framed image from Simon Says Stamps Window Frames stamp set using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the hearts with Copic Markers.  I added tiny white dots using my 8mm Sakura white gel pen.  I die cut the Trio Window die from the center.  I cut extra squares as well.  I added foam tape to the back and popped up onto a true black panel. I used a MFT Blueprints 23 for the center panel and pure poppy scalloped edges.  

  I added a white square into the frames using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  I layered two squares together to create some stability and used MFT Dot Negative Alphabet dies to create the true black letters for the sentiment.  I popped up each square with more foam tape and turn each square for added whimsy and dimension.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.


  1. This is such a sweet Valentine card! Those white polka-dots really make your hearts "pop!"

  2. This is amazing! I love the scrabble-style tiles and I can't believe you added all those little polka dots to your hearts! Sweet!

  3. Striking card, Betty! I always enjoy your work!


Thanks so much!
