I decided to make a "Date Night" card for my hubby using this stamp!  It seemed perfect!  

I made my background by arranging all the individual stamps on a large block in a random pattern.  I stamped with Versamark onto a piece of white cardstock.  Then, I randomly sprinkled Red Apple Embossing Powder & Americana Embossing Powder over it and heat set. 

I set it aside and started working on my cardbase.  I used Tear-ific Tape and applied it all around the edges of the card front.  Then, I sprinkled Jasper Blue Microfine glitter all over it and burnished it in with my finger.  I used a bit of red cardstock to make the background pop - I started to think that this card had a definite "Americana" feel to it with my color choices! :D

I also put a strip of Tearific Tape on a small strip of red paper to make the accent for the font. I used the same Jasper Blue glitter to make it pop as well!

I took the Date Night stamp and stamped it with blue ink onto a 1.5" circle.  I used Dimensional Glue around the edge and sprinkled Jasper Blue Glitter to make it stand out.  I set it aside to dry overnight and then went to work on my embellishment.

To make the swirly circle dimensional embellishment, I used a technique that Demo Donna shared with us in her technique of the week video found here:    I took my Dimensional Glue and made the design on a plastic bag.  I sprinkled  Jasper Glue Glitter over my Dimensional glue pattern, then set it aside to dry.  How simple is that?

I wanted to add an extra sentiment to the card, so I grabbed my Love & Kisses stamp sent and stamped my sentiment on white cardstock.  I dovetail trimmed the edges and used the Sakura Glue Pen & Jasper Blue Glitter to add the swirls on top & underneath the sentiment.

To assemble the card, I used Tear-ific Tape & Foam Sqaures for added dimension.  I used a few drops of Dimensional Glue to adhere my sparkly swirl embellishment. 

I hope you enjoy my creation as I sure had fun creating it!  I love that I can use a planner stamp to make a fantastic card - who knew?
