Pleats and Dots Valentine

I made card for a couple of challenges on SCS...TLC205 to use pleats on your card and Sketch Challenge (SC212).  I need to get a few Valentine's finished so tried to keep to that theme.

The base of this card is Chocolate Chip.  The designer papers are from Marcella in a pack I got at Target last year.  The "Love" Stamp is a Michael's $1 bin find.   There are red gems in the corners that you can see if you click on the photo.  I made the ovals with Spellbinders oval dies.  I added the dots with a white Sakura gel pen after fooling with this off and on during the day.  I just thought it needed SOMETHING but wasn't sure what.  I think the dots finished it off.

To make the pleated medallion, I cut a 1 x 12" strip of DP and scored it every 1/4"on my Scor-Pal.  I brought the ends together, keeping one finger on the center to keep it from popping up, and adhered the ends using a drop of hot glue.  I punched a 3/4" circle from red  CS, put a heart brad through a polka dot prima flower then glued them to the center of the medallion.

Thanks for dropping by.

Blessings and Happy Stamping!

Pin It!
