Story of Elegance

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January 2023 Blog Hop!

If your craft projects aren’t already filled with hearts, then you might be behind the eight ball. No worries – we are here to help. We are excited to share our heart-filled creations with you and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I enjoy using Stampin’ Up paper punches and when I learned of today’s theme, I knew right away that I wanted to use the Heart Punch Pack.  This wonderful punch set has two punches, the Scalloped Heart punch and the Heart punch which are perfect for layering.

I combined the punches with one of my favorite die sets, Scalloped Contours and the new Cane Weave 3D embossing folder for a quick and elegant card.

Here’s the card I made:

Thinking of You card made with Stampin' Up! products

InKing Royalty Blog Hop – Hearts

There is so much texture on this card and I love that.

Elegance Made Easy

Following are the quick steps to recreate this card.

First, make your cuts:

  • Punch a heart using Very Vanilla card stock
  • Punch a scalloped heart using Pale Papaya card stock
  • Die cuts:
    • Use the large die from the Scalloped Contours cut the scalloped panel using Pale Papaya card stock
    • Use the next largest die from the set to cut a panel using Very Vanilla card stock.  Emboss the panel using the Cane Weave 3D embossing folder.

Emboss the card front of an A2 card base made with Thick Very Vanilla card stock.  Note:  An A2 card base is made by scoring an 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card stock scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

Layer the die cuts onto the embossed card front as shown.

Stamp the sentiment onto the Very Vanila heart using Pale Papaya ink.  I used a sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set.  Layer the hearts using Foam Adhesive Sheet cut to fit just inside the heart.  Add the assembled heart to the card front.

Add Pale Papaya gems from the 2121-2023 In Color Opal Rounds around the heart and a bow made with your favorite coordinating ribbon.

To complete the project, emboss  the envelope flap using the Cane Weave 3D embossing folder.
