Penni and I were planning to feature this cute little coaster during our Valentine blog series last week and just never got it done. It's not a Valentine stamp set, but I had to share it with you before the holiday anyway. It was more work than I usually put into a card, but the end results are spectacularly cute! We used red, pink, vanilla and pale aqua on our projects, along with a little Red Glimmer Paper.
The really amazing thing to me is, just one die cuts all this intricate structure out--just one run through the Big Shot. Somebody way smarter than me designed that!!
The coaster has two separate levels to put cars on, yet still folds almost perfectly flat. You will want to either hand-deliver this one, or send it in a special envelope with a little more postage than normal. I tried to keep the front cover of my card pretty flat to help with the bulk.
Stampin' Up made a great video of this set of dies, which you should definitely watch if you decide to purchase them. There's a couple of tricks that will make like a lot easier and your end results even more professional. The birthday options are TOO. CUTE. And guess what?? You can slip a gift card behind there, too! That makes this card even more versatile.
Happy Heart's Day, friends! Have fun expressing your love to family and friends, this week, and all year long.
I love that bundle - the little hotdog cart is my favorite little stamp in that set! Your card is so fun, I really like the valentine's color combo. The red glimmer is the perfect touch of sparkle! I haven't played with this set myself, but your card is going into my inspiration file for when I do :)
