With Valentine’s Day being less than two weeks away, I’ve been focusing on cards and gifts for this occasion. I wanted to make something pretty and feminine for my mother-in-law, so I pulled out my Birthday Blooms stamp set and made a square card, just to be a little different.
I colored the image with an aquapainter and Watermelon Wonder and Old Olive inks. I used the gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush for the center of the flower to add some fun shimmer. After I hand cut the flower, I placed it on top of a die-cut heart using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Die.
These layers were placed on top of a layer of the Fancy Foil designer vellum paper. I attached some Gold 1/8″ Ribbon and Gold Sequin trip with a Bow Paper Clip Embellishment.
The sentiment was stamped on Basic Black card stock with Versamark ink and embossed with white Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It comes from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.

Amy, your flower is so bright and beautiful on the soft white background. Love the touches of gold too!
Classy and beautiful card! I’m sure the recipient will love it.

Very pretty card. I love the flower on top of the heart die and all the elements. They make it pop.
Love the elegance of this, and delicate layering. Stunning! X
I agree with Connie. I love the touches of gold and especially the use of the vellum paper. TFS.
This is just lovely, Amy. I love the touches of gold, and the way you used the bow clip is fabulous!
Love the pop of color on the all white! Just stunning work!
Such a pretty card. Love the bright flower with the gold.
Great idea and beautiful design. Top!
Stunning layers. Obviously the flower and the heart are gorgeous, but I also love the vellum as a backdrop and the sequin and clip as an accent
