Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Sweetheart Punch


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I couldn't make my card work in landscape so I switched to portrait and flipped the greeting to the other side.

I used the Sweetheart Punch to fulfil the circle elements from the sketch. I added a greeting from the Tin of Cards stamp set and stamped a cute little red heart above it. Some sequins finished it off. 

TIP #1 -  use up your old DSP by making Envelope Liners with the Envelope Liner Framelit Dies. This is from a retired Valentine paper stack. The Real Red matches the red circle and the red heart on my card. :)

TIP #2 - use the Fine Tip Glue Pen from the Holiday Catalogue to glue down your sequins. ZERO mess! :)

I was also inspired by the theme at CASOLOGY this week....
