A Simple Valentine's Card

Hi there, Bridget here with another project for January. Can you feel the love? It’s almost Valentine’s Day and unlike Christmas,  I want to be ready with cards for all my loved ones. So, today I have made an easy Valentine’s Day that lends itself to “mass production”.

I wanted to move away from the traditional white & red for my card so I went with this softer colour pallet. The products I used for this card are not actually love themed at all but worked perfectly once they were all put together. I have some items from the Ooh La La collection as well as from the Be Merry Collection.

To start off with, score and fold your card base.
Cut Lilac Cardstock 4” x 5 5/8” & Twinkle Paper 3 7/8” x 5 ½”. Adhere the layers together and stick it to the front of the card.

Glue down one of the Ooh La La heart doilies in the center of the card front.
Out of pink cardstock cut the heart border piece from the Art Deco Border set. Trim it down to fit across the center of the card. 

Cut a piece of silver glitter paper ½” x 4” and adhere over the die cut.
Cut another piece of Lilac Cardstock 2 ¼” x 3” & Twinkle Paper 2 1/8” x 2 7/8” Place this in the center of the front of the card.

Hand cut a few hearts out of shades of pink, silver glitter and lilac. If you have any punches or dies with hearts use those. Emboss them using the folders from the gorgeous Ooh La La range.

 Using our 3D foam tape arrange the hearts within the rectangle on the front of the card.

Lastly, find a Valentine’s Day stamp in your stamp, stamp it on a piece of vellum ¾” wide and heat emboss it using our amazing embossing powders. 

Tuck the edges of the vellum around the front panel. Quick and easy your card is done.

I hope you all have a beautiful Australia Day coming up soon and I will be back soon with another Design Team Project. Looking forward to seeing you all at Creative Inspiration Live next month. If you haven’t booked your spot, get moving.
