Hey everyone. Welcome back to day 3 of the Valentine’s Day Card Series. The color palette for today is very retro and I love it. This has been one of my favorite color palettes for a while now and I even want to use it in my house now. LOL We are working with the Heart Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th today along with a quick and easy sentiment. If you missed the start of the card series, you can visit day one here. Let’s get into the card.
Like I mentioned we are using the Heart Turnabout stamp to make a pretty background. The ink colors today are from Concord & 9th and they are Aqua Sky, Marmalade, Stardust and Wheat. This color palette will work for masculine or feminine cards.
Adding a little bit of dimension on the card by die cutting out the center with the Hero Arts Infinity Hearts dies gives the card a pretty eclipse look.

Like I promised, here is a bonus card I made using the watercolor background. The panel was created using the same colors but instead of inks, I used liquid watercolors in the same colors from Concord and 9th. For this card I used the Waffle Flower Stitchable Pinking Heart die for my focal point. Stitching has become another hobby I’m really embracing. The pattern for this design was easy to create by just shifting the colors in the design.
DMC floss was my go to thread for the stitched heart. Here are a few color combos in the same palette you can use for stitching.
DMC726, DMC741, DMC779, DMC3761
DMC744, DMC3854, DMC3862, DMC747
I decided not to place a sentiment on this card and just let the beautiful stitching shine through.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed your visit. I’ll see you back here tomorrow for more Valentine’s Day card inspiration.
