Dreams of Love

Here's another "love" card that could be used for Valentine's Day, but could just as easily be used for an Anniversary or even a Wedding. This image from the Dreams Du Jour set always reminded me of the love stamps the Post Office creates for wedding invitations. Punched out with the scalloped square punch and arranged into a tile of 2x2 they look even more so.

The card itself is fairly simple. I stamped the image four times with basic black ink on whisper white card stock and punched all four out with the scalloped square punch. I colored all four images using stampin' write markers. I used old olive for the leaves and so saffron for the flower centers. On two of the images I colored the flowers with pretty in pink marker and the border with regal rose marker. On the other two images I reversed the colors.

I mounted each punched image on a square of old olive card stock and arranged them on a square of georgia peach designer series paper. I added a square mat of regal rose and attached it to a 4x5.25" piece of so saffron card stock. I tied a piece of 5/8" regal rose grosgrain ribbon around the so saffron card stock (I used a cheater bow, of course). Then, as a final step, I attached the so saffron card stock to a pretty in pink card base.
