Valentine double easel card side on

I know there’s been a lot of hearts on my blog lately, but I literally fell in love with the more amore specialty designer series paper, and couldn’t resist using it with the core’dinations cardstock to make a double easel Valentine’s card.

The core’dinations cardstock really comes into its own when it’s embossed and sanded to reveal the lighter core, highlighting the designs of the embossing folders.

I added a row of the vanilla flower trim –

gorgeous vintage dimensional flowers on strips of tulle …

With a sprinkling of adhesive pearls and a tiny bow of very vanilla seam binding ribbon …

Despite being so dimensional, the card folds flat to fit into an envelope for giving.

For the pageboys …

When my friend, Sarah, asked me to make cards for her bridesmaids and pageboys I was absolutely delighted.  You can see the cards I made for her bridesmaids here.

Whilst she knew exactly what she wanted for her bridesmaids, when it came to the ones for her pageboys, she left it totally up to me to decide on the design and colour.

Having used neutral colours for the bridesmaids, I decided to carry on the same theme for the boys …

The little button brads from the vintage trinkets were just perfect for buttons on the waistcoats. Sarah loved them!


Here’s what you need to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!:

cardstock: naturals ivory, very vanilla; accessories: neutrals dsp, stampin’ dimensionals, sticky strip, vintage trinkets.
