I was busy making congratulation cards with Stampin’ Up!’s Blue Ribbon stamp set when the idea came to me to make a valentine card with this set. Kind of a ‘you’re my #1 Valentine!’ card. Instead of using the scallop top for the blue ribbon I used a die cut heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits Die set.

I also added a rhinestone to the number 1 and backed it with a circle-punched Basic Gray.
A strip of Real Red cardstock behind the ‘xoxo’ paper pattern from the Love Impressions Designer Series Paper adds a little more dimension and separates the two coordinating patterns. (This paper is currently on the clearance rack and is only available while supplies last.)
I created a matching envelope with the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate. So fun and easy! If you want to learn how I got my pattern straight instead of diagonal on the envelope check out this post with a video tutorial on how to make an envelope.
And I clipped my hubby’s name to the top for a creative way to keep it closed with the adorable heart paper clip available in the Spring catalog. I stamped and embossed his name in white with the Notable Alphabet stamp set. Every crafter should have at least one alphabet stamp set on hand for personlizing projects!

I’m enjoying all the fun comments I’m getting on the blog candy post. It sounds like so many of you have special plans to show the ones you love how much you love and appreciate them! Valentine’s Day is not just for sweethearts; it’s also a day to show our love for children, grandchildren, friends and coworkers.
Have fun as you make your cards and your treats. And I hope you found a little inspiration today with this Number 1 Valentine Blue Ribbon card.
