Love Scraps Valentine Card

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! I'm experimenting color mixes and layout with another card made with the Mint Berry paper pad. The focal panel has had a small piece used in a heart cut-out in a previous card but now I'm featuring a section about 2.75" deep x 3 or 3.25" wide. The flower in the design looks like a peony but previously I've referred to as a rose. Two scrap strips of 2 more Mint Berry prints are behind the panel along with a solid sage green and a mid-gray. 

Love Scraps Valentine card:

Isn't this lovely? I'm really enjoying coordinating the Mint Berry designs. The pale pink scallop is being used for the first time in this 2022 bash of this paper pad. The arrow point type chevron has been used before...and I love this print so much that I'm parting it out sparingly! :)

More design notes: 

A. cardstocks: prints are from Mint Berry paper pad by The Paper Studio, 2016 and the solid colors are Astrobrights (pink base), Pen + Gear (sage green), and Art Skills/Crafter's Choice (mid-gray)

B. gems= red hearts and pale pinks are from stash

C. love red glitter foam sticker= stash

D. black inking on cardstock edges

E. dimensions of this top-folded card are 4.25" wide x 5.5" long
