This sweet heart card for mom is so simple and key-ute! That mini envelope is just the most adorable thing, don’t you agree?
With a bright pop of colour and some delicate hearts, your mom will love this card on her special day!
Using only two colours the Shimmer Vellum Polished Pink envelope just pops right off this crisp Basic White 3×3 card! The little hearts decorate the envelope so you have a total pretty package!
If you think this shimmer vellum is pretty for the mini envelope and hearts, here’s another design I made by heat embossing on it also in the Polished Pink.
The mini envelope is made with one quick cut through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine and a dab of glue to hold it together, super quick to make with the die in the Sweet Hearts Dies set. Both the white and pink small hearts can be cut at the same time with a good selection of heart shapes in the set.
TIP: I’ve found with the Shimmer vellum it’s not quite so fussy about showing the glue in behind. So you don’t have to be quite as careful as you would with plain old vellum cardstock.
These dies all by themselves can be used for so many other occasions. Weddings and anniversaries and bridal showers of course. But the tag, banner and mini envelope are so versatile, you can use them for ANY occasion!
You all know how I try to get as much use out of my dies, stamps and tools as I can! I choose and recommend items to you that I KNOW will give you lots of variety. And this set of dies does!
How sweet would a little posy of flowers be popping out of the envelope? Or maybe some balloons for a birthday? Easter eggs? Even a cute little critter’s face would be adorable.
Sweet Heart Card For Mom
Let’s take a closer look at the card elements.
The Stitched with Whimsy dies create the fanciful lines cut into the card. At first you might think these dies are defective because they don’t actually cut OUT the shape, only create these lines. The set includes many different sizes to fit other A2 cards also. (Not sure what A2 means? See this post to explain it.)
The tiny silver embossed “hi there” comes from the Many Messages stamp set (and Messages Die) which are both retiring at the end of April 2022. This is one large stamp you can ink up once and run through the Messages Dies for all kinds of greetings in different shapes and sizes…MORE versatility!! You can see all the retiring items by clicking here.
A double wrap of Basic White Baker’s twine and the little bow adds a further touch of fancy. The single iridescent rhinestone is the icing on the cake!
