Fresh Vintage Valentine Card

Happy Friday, everyone!  Are you ready for some football?  We are here in Indiana!  It's so neat to know that the Super Bowl is less than a 30 minute drive away!  I think Indianapolis has done a great job hosting this year.  So proud!  Go Giants!

I CASEd today's card from one I saw on SCS made by Diane Vander Galien.  I did change mine a little bit, but not a lot.  I used a different Impressions Folder, used a different greeting, made the  greeting a different shape, used both SAB ribbons, put "bow" in a different place, and added Pool Party card stock under the Pool Party colored DSP layer.  I also punched a border across the bottom of the added card stock with the Scallop Trim Border Punch (p. 211).

I used the 3 items that come in the bundle that hostesses receive for free when their workshop comes to $400 (before shipping & tax) during Sale-A-Bration.  The bundle items are the Fresh Vintage stamp set (p. 6 in SAB catty), Everyday Enchantment DSP (p. 7 in SAB catty), and Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack (p. 7 in SAB catty).   If you would like to earn all three SAB items free, you can either place a $150 order (before shipping & tax), or host a qualifying workshop.  If you would like to have a workshop and live in west central Indiana, I'd love to do one for you.  You have until March 31st to either choice. 

The greeting comes from the P.S. I Love You set (p. 8 in Occasions Mini).  The heart was made using the new Hearts Collection Framelits Dies (p. 6 in Occasions Mini).  I stamped the floral image before I cut out the heart with the framelit, and then I sponged it with Soft Suede ink.  I also sponged the greeting piece with Soft Suede ink.  The heart and greeting are attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 206).

The bow is actually 8 small ribbon pieces (4 in each color of SAB ribbon) put in between the SAB brad prongs, and then inserted into the card stock.  Each ribbon strip is about 2" long.
