Totally Love You Valentine’s Day Card

Totally-Love-You-Six-Hearts-IMG_0970

I love this Valentine’s Day card made with patterned hearts. The patterns were stamped onto the heart shapes using my MISTI stamping tool. I used a patterned swatch stamp set and a window heart wafer die both by Simon Says Stamp. The patterns in the swatch set are lovely!

How I made this project

  • Cut a piece of white wood-grained cardstock to 4.00” by 5.5”.
  • Center the heart windows wafer die onto the wood-grained cardstock and run this through your die-cutting machine. This will create a panel with 6 heart openings. Note: The hearts that are cut out can be saved for another project.
  • Using the heart window wafer die, and a piece of white cardstock, die-cut another set of hearts using the windows heart wafer die. This set of hearts will be used to stamp the patterns.
  • Stamp the six patterns from the patterned swatch set onto the six die-cut hearts. Note: It’s best to use a stamping tool such as the MISTI to get a good, solid impression on each heart.
  • Center and adhere the wood-grained panel onto an A2 (4.25” by 5.5”) piece of paper that is in a coordinating color as the ink used to stamp the hearts.
  • Adhere foam tape on the back of each of the 6 stamped hearts.
  • Inlay each of the 6 stamped hearts into a heart opening in the woodgrain cardstock piece. Note: the hearts will be slightly raised for dimension because of the foam tape behind each heart.
  • For the sentiment:
    • Heat emboss the sentiment using white embossing powder, onto a scrap piece of cardstock that is the same color as the cardstock used to mat the wood-grained panel.
    • Die-cut the embossed sentiment using a banner die, or hand cut the banner.
    • Adhere the sentiment banner to card front with foam tape.
  • Adhere the final card front onto an A2-sized card base.
