It’s Valentine’s week and it is not just for couples. This is a great time to let someone know just how much you love them.
These two Valentine’s Day cards are just wonderful for sharing your love. Today I will show you how to make the Two Hearts card.
Measurements: Whisper White Card stock (CS) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches and 5 x 3 3/4 inches, Real Red CS 5 1/4 x 4 inches, From My Heart Designer Series Paper (DSP) 5 x 2 1/4 inches and a strip of the foil hearts from the From My Heart DSP.
Adhere the 5 x 2 1/4 inch From My Heart DSP to the bottom of the 5 x 3 3/4 inch Whisper White CS.
Tip: Since this stamp set is Photopolymer, use the Stampin’ Pierce mat to get the best image. Stamp the sentiment “Roses are red, Violets are blue” in Real Red ink onto the right side of the Whisper White CS portion, just above the border of the From My Heart DSP.
Use the Bone Folder to fold the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White CS at the 4 1/4 inch score line. This is your card base.
Stamp the sentiment “Being friends is better than eating candy (but let’s do that too)” on the inside of the Whisper White CS card base in Real Red ink.
Stamp a few heart doilies on the inside with Flirty Flamingo ink.
You can clean the extra ink off of the Stampin’ Pierce mat with a baby wipe or wet rag.
Punch out the foil hearts from the From My Heart DSP using the scalloped-edged heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack.
Adhere the stamped Whisper White card piece to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Real Red CS.
Measure the Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to be about 1 inch longer on each side of the card piece.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon to the card piece. Tip: The easiest way to get the glue dot onto the ribbon is to press the ribbon on top of the glue dot while it is on the roll.
I also put a glue dot in the center of the ribbon to hold it in place, then flip the card piece over and adhere the ribbon to the back side.
Adhere the card piece to the front of the Whisper White card base, making sure the inside sentiment is in the proper orientation.
Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Flirty Flamingo foil heart.
Tip: When you have used all the Dimensionals there is a border left behind. Cut into smaller pieces and use these as well.
Position the two foil hearts, then adhere the Real Red foil heart with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Snail Adhesive.
Peel off the protective cover on the Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere the Flirty Flamingo foil heart over the top of the Real Red foil heart.
Use the pick end of the Take Your Pick tool to get under the adhesive of the rhinestone and move it into position on your card. Gently press on the rhinestone with your finger to secure it to the card and remove the pick.
I used three rhinestones.
And Viola! my fellow stampers! You have a wonderful card to send to share your love with someone special!
