Hi! I’m here once again to share another card for Valentines. This will be the last of the Valentines inspired cards that I will be posting for this year. The last card I made was colorful and wacky not your typical mushy Valentines card so I decided to create a simple and back to traditional lovey-dovey Valentine card. In this project, I went back to basics, of course, there won’t be a Valentine card without a heart design so that would be the centerpiece of this project but I wanted to make it more interesting by using a red glitter adhesive foam sheet. (of course, it has to be red lol)
In this project, I used the following materials: Concord and 9th Cuddles & Hugs Stamps. I used the big heart with sentiments. For the card base, I used a red cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″ and I fold it in half. 3 7/8″ x 5 1/4″ light pink cardstock , light grey cardstock in 1 1/2″ x 4 1×4″, heart background embossing folder, red glitter foam adhesive sheet, heart shade cutting die with lace trimmings, Lawn Fawn White Pigment Ink, Ranger White Embossing Powder, heat gun and other basic crafting tools.
I usually score and cut the base of the card first using my WRMK scoring board. I cut the other end of the grey cardstock into a fishtail banner. With the heart background embossing folder, I run the light pink cardstock in my Big Shot Machine. I made two die cuts of the heart-shaped die, one in the red glitter adhesive foam sheet and one in a piece of white card stock. The white die cut will serve as a stiff base for the glitter adhesive foam. I used the lace trimming of the die cut. I kept the scrap heart-shaped foam for future ideas. (Always keep your scrap paper)
I stamped the heart shape sentiment in a red cardstock using Lawn Fawn White Pigment Ink using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I let it dry for a while then I heat emboss the sentiment “Happy Valentines Day” from the stamps I previously used from Art Impressions Valentine Bear Stamp Set in a small red cardstock. I did some masking when I stamped the sentiment with my Tsukineko Emboss Stamp Pad. The sentiment was not aligned so I masked the sentiment below and stamped the first word “Happy” and then heat embossed it. Then I masked the first word “Happy” and did the same thing with the rest of the stamp to make a one-line sentiment. Once the pigment ink dried, I die cut it using the same heart die for the centerpiece.
To assemble the card, I adhered the light pink cardstock on top-center of the red base of the card. I glued the grey banner in the middle. I positioned and glued the red heart centerpiece an inch lower from the top part of the card. Next, I used a fine tip glue and placed the red glitter foam sheet around the heart centerpiece. I had to make sure that there are no white spaces peeking on any side of the centerpiece. To finish the card, I used my Scotch foam double-sided tape to glue the sentiment below the heart centerpiece.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and Happy Valentines Day to everyone! Till next time. Cheer!
