Happy Galentines Day Hearts Cards

by Joanne James11. February 2023 20:00

Today I've a quick post to share a couple of cards I made using this week's Color Throwdown palette and SUO Challenges #SUOC319 theme of Galentine's Day:

   

I created two cards in the same design - take a look:

 

This card uses some striped Country Floral Lane DSP in Sweet Sorbet; I also created a second, brighter version, using Poppy Parade and some retired host DSP from the previous mini catalogue:

 

The coolest thing about both cards is the sentiment:

 

I made a custom 'Happy Galentine's Day' sentiment using the Valentine's stamp in the 'Love For You' stamp set and stamping it by masking the 'v' and heat embossing the sentiment in gold, then selectively masking the 'g' in the word 'gets' on one of the other sentiments in the set and then heat embossing for a second time. This results in the perfect sentiment for the occasion:

 

A few gold enamel shapes added a final touch of sparkle to my cards. Finally, here's a photo of both cards together:

 

Galentine's Day is traditional celebrated on 13th February - will you be sending girly greetings to the women in your life?

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 evening; I spent the day at the side of the hockey pitch again; spring is clearly on the way - I managed a short coat and could still feel my toes when the final whistle blew - progress! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

I was wondering how I missed a Galentine's Day specific sentiment in the SU catalogs, very clever way to make one yourself!  I never would have guessed!  Love the punched hearts with the DSP peeking through, both the Sorbet and Poppy look fabulous.  Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges!

I just saw a similar card like these and WISH I had seen them earlier!  SO clever and creative! But I admit my hat is off to you for your "galentine" sentiment......you nailed that perfectly and I commend you for the patience it must have taken you to do that! Kudos, my friend!
