Have you placed your Sale-A-Bration order yet? No? There is still time! 

During Sale-A-Bration, January 5 through February 28, you can earn free product for every $50 or $100 you spend (before tax and shipping). 

For a $50 purchase, one of the freebies is a darling pack of Designer Series Paper called Flower and Field. For my card today, I used one of the sheets from this flowery set.

Seriously, the papers in this pack of DSP are a treasure trove of possibilities. I still have lots of ideas to use this paper, but here is one of them:

In combination with this DSP, I used a stamp from the January Paper Pumpkin set. The heart inside the circle is the stamp in question. Isn't it wonderful?

Those little flowers all concentrated on one sheet of 12X12 paper is sort of like standing in the middle of a field of flowers. They are all so tiny and precious. Irresistible.

Die cutting the word "love" using an old Stampin' Up! die set from white cardstock echoed the paper flowers, as well as the circle upon which the hearty heart was stamped.

I had some white paper flowers that I'd had in my stash for quite some time. After separating three of them from the bigger bunches and tied together with a piece of Cherry Cobbler baker's twine, it made a teeny bouquet that was reminiscent of the tiny flowers in the DSP.

While it's a fairly simple card to create, keep reading for a tutorial and list of materials to do so.

Stamp from January 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit

Cherry Cobbler ink

Die Cutting/Embossing Machine
Retired Love die
Stitched Shapes Dies (page 183, Annual Catalog)
Cherry Cobbler baker's twine
Stampin' Dimensionals
Glue Dots

Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Petal Pink cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.

Add to this card base a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of the Flowers and Field Designer Series Paper.

Stamp the lovely heart from the January Paper Pumpkin kit onto a piece of white cardstock that measures about 3 1/2" square. If you are not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, another heart image stamp can be used instead.

Cut out the heart with the large circle die from the Stitched Shapes dies set.

Adhere the heart to the DSP with Stampin' Dimensionals, so there are even borders at the top and sides.

From the retired Stampin' Up! die set, cut the word "love" from white cardstock. With small drops of glue, adhere this to the lower portion of the card, about 1/4" from the bottom of the DSP.

Tie three white paper flowers together with a piece of Cherry Cobbler baker's twine made into a bow. With a glue dot or two, add the flower "bouquet" above the love sentiment.

While this card is obviously ideal for use as a Valentine, it is suitable for other occasions as well. Think wedding, thinking of you, even sympathy. Any time you need to send a little love.

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
