Sweet Talk BFF Galentines Card

by Joanne James9. February 2022 12:00

Today I'm sharing a quick card that uses the colours and inspiration photo over at Color Dare that is perfect for the JUGS Challenge this week too:


I thought this pattern in the 'Sweet Talk' designer series paper pack, covered in love hearts is pretty much all of the colours in the inspiration photo, would be perfect for a quick card for your 'Galentine' (apparently that is a word!) - take a look:


I snipped off the corner and placed another pattern from this pack (it just so happens to be the reverse of the main sheet) underneath, adding a heart diecut border cut with one of the dies in the Floral Hearts Dies set across the join, and finished with a diecut heart in Petal Pink that I retrieved from my scrap box (it was actually cut from the centre of the large floral die in the aforementioned set) and adding a trio of 'BFF' white letters cut with my Playful Alphabets Dies for my very own 'love heart' focal point:


Super simple, no stamping and a great way to let the paper do all the hard work - I love that jumble of colourful hearts!

So is it me, or do teenagers use acronyms such as 'BFF' ('best friend forever' in case you're not familiar!) more and more these days? They creep into our family WhatsApp chats such that sometimes I feel like I need a translator to understand what's going on - I must be getting old lol! (there's another one!) And for anyone out there not familiar with the concept of 'Galentine's Day' - this is celebrated on February 13th and is a combination of the words 'gal' and 'valentine' and was coined as the perfect day to celebrate female friendships - so there's something else to add to the cardmaking calendar!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
