Happy Friday!  I have two Valentine cards made with the same stamp set.  The Season Of Friendship has become one of my go to stamp sets.  I love the versatility and the seasonal variations included in the set.  You have a snowflake for Winter, flowers for Spring and leaves for Summer and Fall. 

The first card has a Marina Mist card stock base. The Baja Breeze card stock  layer is cut 1/4" smaller than the base; my base is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  The snowflakes are stamped on the Baja Breeze layer with Marina Mist ink. I dotted the center of each snowflake with a dab of glue and sprinkled a little Dazzling Diamonds on to give it a little sparkle.  The snow is a piece of Whisper White card stock torn away from me.

TIP:  If you want your edges to look shabby or distressed tear the paper towards you.  If you want your edges to look clean, tear the paper away from you.  

The heart is punched from a scrap of Real Red card stock with the Small Heart punch, the string it is hanging on is a piece of Linen Thread glued with Tombow glue.

 My Second card is very similar to my first with the base changed to Real Red Card Stock and the second layer of Whisper White card stock is cut smaller at 3 1/2" x 4".  The snowflakes are not as obvious when stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  A piece of 1/8" teal Red Taffeta Ribbon tied around the bottom of the card and the greeting  from  Take it to Heart and PS I Love you stamp sets ( from the Occasions Mini Catalog) complete the card.  This tree is stamped in Early Expresso, the tree on the above card is stamped from Sahara Sand.

Tip:  Don't forget to put a piece of white card stock on the inside of your card so you can write or stamp a sentiment.
