One of the best things about making cards is that you can share a little love with someone and make their day. I find that I also get a good feeling by sharing a card with someone.
Since Valentine’s Day is coming I decided to stock up on some cards for the occasion.
Stampin’ Up!’s Heartfelt stamp set, available in the new 2020 Mini Catalog, is great for spreading some love.
I also made this version using the sentiment in the Meant to Be stamp set.
The Meant to Be stamp set is in the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.
Measurements: Whisper White cardstock (CS) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches for the card base and a 4 x 3 inch piece; Flirty Flamingo CS 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches; From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) 5 3/8 x 3 inches; Sparkle Glimmer Paper 4 x 3 inches; and one Flirty Flamingo Heart Doily. If you want to make both versions of the card you would need two of each piece.
In addition I used the Heart Punch Pack. This is available as a set or you can get a bundle that includes the Heartfelt stamp set and the Heart Punch Pack.
Stamp the heart sentiment from the Heartfelt stamp set in Stampin’ Up! Real Red ink and punch out with the smooth edged heart punch.
For the second card, use the sentiment from the Meant to Be stamp set and punch with the smooth edged heart punch.
Use the scalloped edge heart punch to punch a heart from the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.
Use the Bone Folder to fold the card base and make a crisp fold.
Adhere the From My Heart DSP to the 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inch piece of Flirty Flamingo CS. Using the Real Red 3/8 inch Double-Stitched Ribbon, measure about 1 inch past each side.
Use a Glue Dot by putting the ribbon over the Glue Dot to apply one to each end. Position the ribbon and press the edge around to the back to adhere the ribbon.
Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the heart sentiment. I cut my Stampin Dimensionals in half to make them last longer. Adhere the Stampin’ Dimensionals to the other sentiment if you are making both versions.
Peel the protective cover from the Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere to the Sparkle Glimmer scalloped heart.
Adhere the Sparkle Glimmer scalloped heart to the Flirty Flamingo Heart Doily. Tip: I use the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue. You may also use the Snail Adhesive. I prefer the Tombow because it allows you to adjust the piece for a second after you adhere the two pieces together. Also, the Tombow holds for a longer period of time.
Adhere the Heart Doilies to the left side of the From My Heart DSP.
Tie a bow with the Real Red 3/8 inch Double-Stitched Ribbon and adhere to the right side of the card with a few Glue Dots. To see how to make a bow, look for the To Make A Bow Video in this post https://theresas-treasures.com/2019/11/19/christmas-is-coming/
Use the Take Your Pick Tool to pick up a From My Heart Faceted Gem.
Apply a small dot of the Tombow or use a Glue Dot to adhere to the front of the card. Tip: If you place the embellishment in a triangle it appears more pleasing to the eye.
And Viola! you now have a couple of Valentine’s Day cards ready to send some love to someone special! I hope you enjoyed this post. Leave a comment and let me know how I am doing.
