Trifold Card-New Craft Stash #9

Hello! I am featuring the Simon Says Stamp You Have My Heart die. I always have eyes for sentiment dies with shadow dies. Before, I will just fussy cut around a sentiment which offers some challenges every now and then. The shadow dies on the other hand, produces a cleaner cut. And makes it a lot easier. But I did not use the shadow die in this creation of mine.

I know it might be too early for Valentine's but some crafting companies are already showing previews of their Valentine's release. Also, when I purchase this product, my plan is to use if for a future Valentine's project so I think creating a Valentine's card this early should be okay. What do you think?

I cut a Hero Arts pink cardstock at 11" x 4 1/4". I scored this at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4" to create a long trifold card. I die cut two hearts using the same colored cardstock and using the largest sized heart from the HA Nesting Hearts die. I dry embossed one of the hearts using American Crafts Amy Tan Love Spun embossing folder. I adhered the other heart to the back of this embossed heart for extra support since I will use this as a flap. I inked the edges of the heart with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tattered Rose using the Ranger Blending Tool.

For one of the flaps, I adhered some washi tape to create a diagonal striped background. I trimmed off the excess. 

I embossed the other flap with a dotted embossing folder. I lightly blended THDI Tattered Rose to this embossed flap using a blending brush.

I die cut the sentiment on a red and white cardstock. I adhered the red sentiment die cut on top of the white sentiment die cut for a raised look. I repeated this process on the heart that get cuts with the die. I applied Spectrum Noir Solar Red Sparkle to the letters. I added clear Zig Wink of Stella for more shimmer. 

I adhered the heart more towards the right flap. I adhered the sentiment die cut on top of the heart. I adhered the heart on the center of the letter o. I added Ranger Glossy Accent to this heart and set this aside to dry. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
