Ornamental Kisses Valentine

I've seen people use the Ornament Framelits on quite a few occasions to create things like vases to use with flower stamps. What I did with this card was very similar, I die cut an ornament, but this time, just cut one side of it to make a flattened bottom, and retained the pointed tip. Here is the card that I put together.


  1. Create a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base out of Real Red cardstock
  2. Using Brushed Silver cardstock, a die from the Ornament Framelit collection, and the Big Shot Magnetic platform, die cut the ornament shape. In my case I had it overlap the edge to avoid trimming the bottom of the kiss.
  3. Next, take out the Circle Collection framelits to size up the circles with the die cut kiss. In my case I am using the 5th and 6th (from the smallest) dies.
  4. Using the larger of the two circle dies, die cut Real Red cardstock
  5. Emboss a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Fancy Fan embossing folder
  6. Using the smaller circle die, die cut a circle from the embossed cardstock.
  7. Using Real Red ink, stamp the "LOVE YOU" sentiment from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set
  8. Die cut the banner using the Itty Bitty Banners Framelits collection and the Magnetic Platform to keep it in place
  9. Assemble the medallion of the card by adhering the Whisper White embossed circle onto the Real Red circle using glue dots. Apply a glue dot behind the tip of the kiss, adhere the banner. Finally adhere the kiss to the embossed circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  10. Cut a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of Designer Series Paper, I used the "I Am Me" collection, and adhere it to the card base.
  11. Wrap card with Whisper White Organza Ribbon (adhere with small pieces of sticky strip), then adhere the medallion you assembled in Step 9
  12. Tie a bow and adhere to card using glue dots
  13. Assemble materials to create a clay flower, Pool Party reinker, Clay, and Flower Mold. I also grabbed a plastic plate and rubber gloves
  14. Flatten out bits of clay and add a couple drops of reinker to each of them
  15. Wearing the gloves, knead the ink into the clay (the gloves won't be necessary anymore after it's been thoroughly kneaded)
  16. Using the tip of your finger and a drop of water, lightly wet the mold, then press the clay into the mold.
  17. Release the clay from the mold and set the flowers out to air dry overnight (they will still feel soft, but they will retain their shape)
  18. Once dry, apply a clay flower to the ribbon on the card using Sticky Strip (Glue dots will not work with the clay)
