It's Time for Love?........

Hello TRC Fans!  Yes, you read that correctly!  Now that the new year is here, it's time to start thinking of Valentine's Day projects.  I have the perfect stamp sets to use for some quick and easy cards to make for your valentine's.  I used two stamp sets from past TRC Creative Cafe' Kits - Vintage Findings and Perfect Sentiments.  Both of these stamp sets along with many others, are 50% off until January 31st or until supplies last.  Go HERE to see what items are discounted.

Here is my card for today....

To make this card, you will need the following supplies!

A piece of Kraft cardstock cut to 4 1/4 x 11" and scored at 5 1/2" to create the card base.  I have cut 2 pieces of patterned paper to layer together (papers from the Bo Bunny Love & Lace Collection).  These pieces measures 4 x 5 1/4" & 3 3/4 x 5".  I used Rich Cocoa Memento Ink to stamp my images.  Plus I die cut the "love" sentiment using a set of Classic & Scalloped Circle dies.  To create the banner piece, I cut a strip of patterned paper to 5 x 2 1/2".  I used a pencil to mark the middle point and cut a triangle from the bottom of the strip to form the banner.

I stamped the heart lock and key images onto patterned paper using the cocoa ink and fussy cut them out.

I layered my two piece of patterned paper and the banner piece together and added the seam binding ribbon tied into a bow.  Then I added the "love" sentiment.  I like to add my ribbon in this way because then you don't have any ribbon showing inside your card.

Here is a close up of the completed card......

Here is my card again!

I think it would be fun to make these in an assembly-line, don't you?  I hope I have given you a way to use your stamps or a reason to grab it from the store while it is on sale!
