3D Popup Flower Card and Valentine's Day Card

This card uses Stampin'  Up!;TM Wild Wasabi, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery cardstock.  The flower is built from the Build a Blossom® stamp set and punched out using the Blossom Petals Punch®. The background card has been dry embossed using the Big Shot® with the Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder®. The flower centre has been embellished with Pink Fine Supernova Glitter®.  Instructions for the pop-up method can be found at, called the Sliding Pop-up Card by Kim Score.

Greeting is from the Thoughts & Prayers set. 

The Valentine's Day card is created using the LetterPress® Plate: Lots of Love®. It uses Pretty in Pink, Rose Red and Watercolor Paper (Vanilla). The pigment ink is Pretty in Pink and Rose Red. The grosgrain ribbon is threated through a Vanilla Hodgepodge buckle. The hearts are punched out using the Heart Small® and Heart to Heart Extra Large® (3 hearts) punches.  You can't see the detail in the photo, but the debossed "Love" words cover the watercolor cardstock -- not just the words that were inked before putting the letterpress through the Big Shot®.  The heart over the "E" of Love (Rose Red) was also dry embossed using the Textured Impressions Square Lattice Embossing Folder®.
