Recycled Valentine Greetings

I can't believe the holiday break has ended and we head back to work and school tomorrow, boy does time fly when you're having fun and we did have lots of fun.  For some reason once Christmas is over I get in a mood to make Valentine cards and projects and made several this week using the new single stamps that are available through tomorrow under Stampin' Up!'s pilot program.  So awhile back Sara Douglass shared this fabulous idea of making personalized stationary using the brown packing paper from Stampin' Up! orders, see Sara's creations HERE.  I loved the idea and have been saving the paper for awhile but haven't actually used it until now.  This card was a breeze to pull together.  After cutting down the paper to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" I folded it in half and used the hearts from the Adorning Accents embossing folders and the Big Shot to emboss the strip of hearts.  Then added a red glitter heart punched with the large heart punch and the Red Shimmer paper.  The stamped heart is one of the new, exclusive single stamps, Love Heart that you can only purchase through tomorrow (I'll be sharing several other fabulous creations with this stamp so you'll want to make sure you have this in your collection).  The "Love You" greeting is from the Seasonal Sayings stamp set in the Holiday catalog and is also only available through tomorrow.  The great thing about this stamp, you can purchase it as a set or as a single image, LOVE IT!
This is so fun and fresh I'll definitely be making more cards with the packing paper and it's so inexpensive.
Have a great evening!

Pin It!
