How do you make a special Valentine with a limited amount of supplies? Paper-Piercing and Lace Paper Tape like in the Pierce My Heart Valentine shown above.
This is actually a "Stepped Up" version of a card from one of my classes this month. The only difference is the addition of our new Delicate Details Lace Tape (#130966) on Page 3 of the Stampin'Up! 2013 Spring Catalog.
Here's the original card. Which one do you like?
I used the new Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack (#129387) to break up the white space and outline the central heart.
What a difference this simple addition of Delicate Details Lace Tape makes. I'm still not sure which version I like the best. The tape comes in a set of two different designs. Self-adhesive and mounted on a clear backing, it's easy to pull off without tearing.
The addition of a heart-shaped button from the Bitty Buttons assortment, adorned with Baker's Twine adds a finishing touch without competing with the other Pierce My Heart Valentine details.
Next time you want to Step-it Up a notch, think about Paper-Piercing or Delicate Details Lace Tape… or Both!
