Surely Stitched Circles and Squares for Valentines Day

 Here are a few of my favorite valentines to celebrate Valentines Day!

IMG_1719Here is a close-up of one of the cards I made using the NEW Surely Stitched Circle die no. 99074 to anchor an arrangement of Trumpet Vine no. 99075, Botanical Stem no. 99088, and Beloved Hearts no. 99102 cut from Bubblegum Gingham patterned paper and Dill cardstock, all on a Bubblegum notecard.  I added a few pearls, too.

IMG_1720This one uses the Surely Stitched Square die no. 99076 cut from white cardstock on a Holly Berry notecard with Beloved Hearts and Botanical Stem adornments.

IMG_1721Here I've added the Loveland Corner no. 99117  in red cardstock to a white notecard and used its popped out hearts inside (and one outside) the red die cut Surely Stitched Circle.

IMG_1727This card features the Loveland Corner cut from white cardstock on a Holly Berry notecard with a section of the corner highlighted by one popped-out piece of the Surely Stitched Square.

IMG_1729This last card begins with an  inset of Beloved Hearts (I used a strip of clear packing tape inside the card front as my stickiness for the securing them in place) cut from white cardstock that I then overlaid with the Surely Stitched Circle also cut from white cardstock.  A few purple gemstones accent the bow.

You'll notice that on most of the cards I've used the center circle or square from the die cut as an accent piece, a place where I can add a die cut initial or stamp a word.  Both the Surely Stitched Circle and the Surely Stitched Square are such versatile dies!  These cards would be appropriate for other occasions as well--birthday, anniversary, thinking of you, or anytime you want to send someone a little love.

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Crafting!

Oh Wow these are all wonderful, such great combo of the dies!

Love these, but how did you keep the lines straight? with a ruler?
