Welcome to the team Stamp It Valentines Day blog hop
I don’t know about you, I have a hard time using my DSP (designer series paper). More times than not, it is because I have an issue with double sided paper. Especially if it has a pretty foil on one side and if there is foil on both sides. — Eeeek!! What are these companies doing to me. Hahaha!
I want to work on using that DSP and the triple fold card is a great way to get started.
- Card base in Basic Black – 11″ x 5 ½”, score and fold at 4 ¼”, 7″, and 9 ¾”
- Whisper White – 2 ½″ x 5 ¼”
- Designer Paper – three pieces
- 2 ½” x 5 ¼”
- 1″ x 5 ¼” outside panel
- 4″ x 5 ¼”
I could have stopped here maybe putting a sentiment on the white panel and it would have been a pretty yet #simplestamping card. The ideas kept flowing to step it up.
On the large panel – I stamped in the center ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ and on the lower purple heart ’Happy to have you in my life’. This sentiment fit so perfect, it’s like the paper was created that way. Both sentiments come from the Sweet Conversations stamp set available in the Sweet Talk suite.
Next idea – what’s something fun I’ve seen for Valentine’s Day?? Coupon book meets lottery ticket. I printed four fun winning tickets but ended up using only three. I punched using the postage stamp (I forgot to include in the supply list below). I ‘laminated’ with packaging tape. I then punched again.
i wish I had silver metallic to give it more of that lottery ticket look. Adding the scratch off coating may take a couple of coats to cover the words.
To be more realistic, I carefully stamped over the top of the scratch off coating.
Because I may have gotten a little carried away with stamping and adding the scratch tickets, I didn’t like how exposed it was when you folded the card closed. I added the belly band which measures 1 1/4” x 11” and embossed with the dotty hearts folder set.
I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered into this month’s drawing like

Lots of different sap used on this card.
Very clever! Love the scratch tickets! Thank you for sharing!
#stampitcontest Clever card. Love it. What did you use for the scratch off coating? Or did I miss it in the instructions?
Hi Phyllis! Thanks for asking – it is so SIMPLE. It looks like I may have left that out – Mix 1 teaspoon craft paint with 1/2 teaspoon liquid soap. I would recommend using a metallic or pearlized paint. It was a bit blah in gray. The I painted on with a foam paint brush. It will take 2-3 coats. Can’t wait for you to try it.
I love cards with interesting folds! Your different folds really add a lot of interest! The belly band is a great idea to help keep the folds closed until the recipient is ready to look at each side. I was going to ask you what you used for the scratch-off coating since I read and re-read your post looking for it. I’m thankful that Phyllis S. asked about it and that you responded, Dawn. Thank you for sharing!
Great idea with the script-its!
Dawn, love this idea & I’ve never seen the scratch-off before…how was this done? Do have instructions on your blog or a video?
What a great idea!! #stampitcontest
