Hello Friends, yes we are gearing up to celebrate Valentine's day pretty soon. Its time we pick up our scissors and some flowers to create some beautiful handmade cards and gifts for our loved ones.
This week I created a card using the Heartfelt Love collection. Its a very pretty collection , amazingly designed so that you can celebrate your loved ones perfectly.
The final card measures 5.5” x 4.25” and its created in a clean and simple format with intricate die cutting. Take a white card stock and cut and score it at 5.5”x4.25” to form the card base. Cut a pattern paper from the Heartfelt love paper collection at 1/8” less than the card base and adhere to the card. Take the second largest eyelet heart die and die cut the front card panel. Using a 5”x4”white card stock die cut using the designer square from the Gift of love box die.Adhere the intricate die cut piece at the heart window which will form the card front panel. Stamp several branches from the banner of love sentiment using black archival ink from a water color paper. Color the bouquet using zig brushes and a water color brush and then die cut the pieces. Stamp and die cut several petals of the dogwood flower from white card stock and plum archival ink. Shade them using plum, sunflower archival ink. Mist them and shape them. Glue them together and finish the flower by some center prills.Once the die cut pieces are ready and the flowers, arrange the bouquet around one side of the die cut heart window. Tuck in some small flowers and end the card with a stamped “ I love you “ sentiment for the perfect valentine day card.
