Love You Valentine’s Day Card

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. I thought I’d share an easy Valentine’s Day Cards. I’ve been meaning to use Spellbinders Expandable Pattern dies to create an elegant embossed background for a card and finally gave it a go with the projects I’m sharing today. All three of these cards are standard A2 cards and measure 4 1/4 by 5 1/2€.

Colored cardstock, glue

Instructions:

  1. Emboss a piece of white cardstock cut to 4 x 5 1/2″ using Grateful Lattice die. There’s no need to cut it, simply emboss using the embossing sandwich on your machine.
  2. Cut/emboss heart and butterfly using the Heart & Flutter die and one of the arrow die from the Shoot! set. Make sure to cut/emboss the arrow twice. You will need two pieces: a head and shaft and a tail and shaft.
  3. Cut a piece of white cardstock 4” long and a little less than half an inch wide. Stamp a sentiment in black and feed the piece through the heart.
  4. Create a card base out of colored cardstock. Adhere embossed background onto a card base. Add a butterfly and two arrow pieces. Embellish the background with white pearls.

Designer’s Note:

Play around with the heart placement on your card. Place it in the center, have it located towards the bottom, or slide it to the left or right.
