I had another productive day yesterday. I got up nice and early did my morning blog stuff and then ran to IKEA and Lowes. I got Kvartal and panels from IKEA to make a sliding door to cover the closet in the room off the kitchen and then stopped at Lowes to get a cord cover to hide the cords that are draped down the wall by the new wall unit. After my errands I went over to Kim & Brian’s for lunch, we had a few glasses of Cupcake Red Velvet, yum! Then it was off to get a hair cut and I got to see Heather, her appointment was right after mine. As a bonus she brought me a Venti So Vanilla Latte! I stopped home quick and picked up Taylor and we ran out to Scrap-A-Latte so I could give Renee the price gun that I ordered from amazon to her. On the way home I got a really bad headache, I took some Excedrin when I got back to the house and waited about 2 hours before it finally went away. My dad, who Andrew calls Stanley, stopped by and fixed my computer chair, the back had fallen off. I don’t think that it will ever fall off again! I was quite happy with all that I got accomplished! 🙂
When I sat down last night to make my card I had the urge to do something a little different and here is what I came up with. The card starts off with a base of Real Red Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack*. My banner is a piece of red felt and I used the Banners Framelits to cut it out. The holes down either side are cut out one of the dies from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits* along with the bow from a piece of black felt. My heart in the middle is cut out with a die from the Circle Card Thinlits. I adhered the banner to the base with some Fast Fuse. Finally, I used the Hello You Thinlits* and some Silver Glimmer Paper to cut out the “you”. Some Multi-Purpose glue adheres the bow and the you to the card. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the dies cut through the felt and I love the texture that it gives the card! Change out the bow for an “I” and this would make a great masculine Valentine too! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today and are inspired to use some felt on your project! As always, I appreciate your visit and wish you a super Saturday! 🙂

Oh man Justin – I went bonkers over this card! How did you ever get that heart cut out so perfectly to fit over the DSP? The felt really does make the card outstanding and the DSP looks like embroidery cross stitching, a technique I do by hand on pillow cases. The silver you is the piece de resistance (use your French accent here please LOL)! I can’t say enough about this card to express how much I love it!
You have yourself a fabulous weekend. We are supposed to have snow and ice tonight into tomorrow so I doubt I’ll be going anywhere. Maybe I’ll take down a few decorations. Hugs to you my friend!
Yay! Thank you so much Grace! I was quite happy when I realized that the heart cut out would fit over the DSP! And the cross stitch look on the DSP is fun! I used my French accent and it did sound so much better! LOL!
I am having a good weekend and hope that despite the weather you are too! Stay safe my friend! 🙂
Justin, Cool card! It always amazes me how you take pieces (such as the Treat Bag thinlits) and use them incompletely different ways. Also amazed at the perfectly lined up heart. Have a great weekend. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you very much Gerri! I love to use different elements from different things and get them to all work together! My weekend is great and I hope that yours is too! 🙂
Super cute card, Justin! Would never have thought of the heart cut out to frame the heart on the DSP! Love it!
Thanks so much Jeanne! Love coming up with new tricks! 🙂
WOW! No further words needed, except I am CASing this!
Woo hoo! Thank you very much Lisa! 🙂
Awesome card Justin! I’ve never used felt but can see me using it in the near future after seeing your card.
Thank you Anna! I think it’s the first time I have used felt, but I’ll definitely be using it again! 🙂
Neat card Justin! Hope your head feels better. So, just where is Stamp a latte? I don’t see it listed anywhere.xxx
Thank you so much Lesley! Scrap-A-Latte is in Babylon. I think it’s too new to be listed. XO 🙂
Beautiful card. I didn’t realize the impact felt could have on a project. I’ll have to try it.
Thank you very much HJ! I am loving the felt too! 🙂
Oh My! You really outdone yourself with this felt idea using framelit die!!!! Once again, you surprise me!
Thank you so much Sandra! Love that I can still surprise you! 🙂
Hi Justin! LOVE your card today! I don’t think to use other types of materials with the framelits. This felt piece looks awesome! And of course, the way you centered a heart is absolutely perfect! So pretty! I am always amazed at how much you pack into a day! Amazing! Hope your day was a good one. I did a lot of organizing in my stamp room so that feels good! Now I need to get in there and be creative! 😉
Thank you very much! I use Vellum and Window Sheet so I thought hmm.. let’s give felt a try! I have had the felt sitting in a drawer forever! I am quite happy that I can pack as much as I can not a day! I need to organize my stamp room too, maybe next weekend! 🙂
Love the card, Justin!
Thank you Nancy! 🙂
I love the card as well! But, then again you used my favorite colors. You just amaze me with all your creativity. Again, l just love it! Have yourself a great evening. Hugs, Donna 🙂
Thank you! I do love the blues and the purples, more so lately for some reason! Thanks again! Hugs to you too my friend! 🙂
So clever, Justin! I *love* the way you framed the DSP heart. Your design is too cute!
Thank you so much El! 🙂
