I am still in Valentine mode! While browsing through some stickers and stamps at Hobby Lobby one day, I came across a package of clear window-type puffy stickers that all had lovely sayings on them. I thought any one of them would be an elegant addition to a special card.
Ultimately, love IS everything. That simple fact works well with this clean design. I love the cut work on the heart. I gave it three layers, separated by pop dots. The top layer is cut from sparkle CS (the pic doesn't do it justice). The lining layer behind the cutout heart is a very pale pink. The scalloped edges are sponged in the same shade of pink.
In trying to figure out where to place a ribbon, or whether to use one at all... it didn't seem to fit anywhere on the card. But I wasn't going to give up! This valentine needed ribbon and I loved how it worked out. The "floating" bow made me smile. It appears to be suspended in mid-air, but you will see how it works in the next photo. Don't you just love how it peeks through the scalloped opening?
I chose a liner paper that is loaded with hearts, because "ultimately, love is everything". (Okay, we get it, Grace.)
This picture shows the ribbon and now you know how it was constructed. For the message panel, I created a layer from the same red embossed paper as on the front to act as a frame.
The verse inside (not shown) was created on my computer with another little puff heart near the bottom.
