Valentine Card - Mojo Monday

I didn't get a chance to look at the Mojo Monday Challenge yesterday but when I saw it today I thought I would like to use it to make my first Valentine Card this year.  I decided to pull out the cute owl punch.  I love the little heart and that fact that you can dress him/her up any way you'd like.  It reminds me of when I used to play paper dolls as a kid. :)

This week you could choose between a scalloped round card or a square one.  I decided on the round and am happy with the way it turned out.  I used paper from the Brights - Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack and decided to stay with traditional Valentine colors - red and pink.  I love the way all the Stampin' Up! products coordinate...don't you?

  • The Scallop Circle Die makes it so easy to make a round card.  I made a 5" square top folded card base and then placed the card so 4 scallops are above the fold before running it through the Big Shot.  You can then use as is if you like the flat top.  But in this case I cut an additional scallop circle to place over the card base to make the card completely round.
  • Using an embossing folder on the heart (in this case the square lattice) allows you to layer the heart over the same color and still have it stand out.
  • The ribbon and sweet button from the Brights Designer Buttons add that final touch.
