Romantic Card for The Paper Players

Looking for an easy, romantic card for that special someone? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

easy romantic cardThis week, the lovely Claire is hosting our monthly theme challenge.  Her choice is a timely one for sure – Love is in the air!

easy romantic cardI elected to use a versatile layout which allows this gorgeous foil designer paper to shine!  Don’t you LOVE this paper? It’s stunning in person.  I layered the hearts, used a sentiment from the Meant to Be set, and added a bow and rhinestones.  Easy-peasy, quick and easy!  Grab your papers, stamps and inks!  I can’t wait to see what YOU create for this week’s challenge!

Today’s card is so easy to create.  The papers were simply cut and layered.  The heart is also layered, and adds a bit of a “WOW”,  don’t you think?

easy romantic cardI used both of the heart punches from the Heart Punch Pack  and a Flirty Flamingo heart doily to create the focal point.   The sentiment, from the Meant to Be stamp set, was inked in Flirty Flamingo. The three small Real Red hearts were created using one of the dies in the Stitched Be Mine collection.

On a Personal Note:

We have puppies on the way! I may be off the radar beginning February 7th, as that is the first possible due date for Kendall the Boxer. Some of you may remember Kendall from three years ago, when she lived with me as a puppy. She is visiting me from Canada, and I get the pleasure of welcoming the little ones into this world.  I will be sure to keep you posted!

Here she is in the whelping box with her head laying on half-brother Jackie, while Aunt Muffy naps the day away!

As always, if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time…



  1. What a stunner of a traditional valentine Ann! I love the layered heart focal point and the sweet ‘meant to be’ sentiment surrounded by tiny hearts. I’m beyond excited to hear that there are pups on the way! Very best wishes to Kendall! Vicky x

  2. That foil dsp is to die for Ann, and you’ve maximized it with your great card design. I love the small hearts surrounding the sentiment, it’s just the perfect touch! Hope all goes well, with Kendell!

  3. Lovely card – the red foil is stunning and I love the stacked punched hearts! Hope “puppy watch” is going well!! 🙂

  4. Awesome Valentine! i love the polka dots!

  5. Oh Ann, this is just gorgeous! That foil steals the show! Your hearts are so pretty and the little trio of red hearts makes me smile. Your bow is so pretty, too! Your card certainly shines in the gallery this week! Now, on to the puppies—I can’t wait to see them. Praying for Kendall and for you too, My Friend! XX

  6. Such a bright and fun card Ann! Love it. Cute photo with “Jack in the Box” with you and Kendall. Some how I think Muffy would be more of a help than Kendall when the time comes. Either way, rest up everyone!

  7. These DSPs are beautiful and I am thrilled that you used this big bold foil design for your pretty Valentine! Just gorgeous! And I can’t wait to hear about the pups’ arrival!! So exciting!

  8. A perfect card to showcase that gorgeous DSP! That pattern is my favorite in the pack! I especially love that little trio of bedazzled hearts. I’ll be thinking of Kendall this week and I hope she has a smooth delivery. Hugs!

  9. Such a SWEET card!! BTW there is nothing SWEETER than Boxer pups but then I’m a bit biased! 😉

  10. How exciting, Ann! I’m looking forward to the Puppy Tales! I fondly remember the Mini Muffin adventures.
    Your card is beautiful!
