Valentines Day Card

Hey everyone! Today I made my friend a belated birthday card, as you can tell her birthday is on Valentines Day! So I thought how appropriate for a Birthday Valentines Day themed card! ; ) Below are step by step instructions with pictures! Enjoy! : )

This are the supplies I used in the making of this card : ) You don't have to do the heat embossing if your not familiar with it though.
I used the following:
Stampin' Up! three heart punch
Stampin' Up word window punch
Stampin' Up Corner Rounder
Martha Stewart Scoring Board
Martha Stewart heat gun
Dark Red Textured Cardstock
Creme Cardstock
Kraft Cardstock
My Mind's Eye Love Me Patterened Paper
Stampabilities Cherry Red Ink Pad
Inkadinkado Clear Hearts Stamps
Clear Acrylic Block
ZING! Clear Embossing Powder
Some Square Dimensionals
Versa Mark Ink Pad
Now here's how to add them all together!

First cut the Kraft 8.5x11 cardstock to 8.5x5.5 and score at 4 1/4.

Cut the red cardstock at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8

Next take the extra cardstock and take your inkadinkadoo heart stamp set and I used the scribbled looking heart. Attach it the clear acrilyc block and cover the stamp with the Dark Cherry Stampabilities ink.

Stamp the Kraft cardstock and clean off the stamp with a wet cloth and remove the excess ink. Then stamp it with the Versa Mark ink pad.

Stamp over the previously stamped heart and then cover it with the clear embossing powder. Empty the extra powder back into the container. And tap off the little particles.

Using your heat emossing gun, let the white powder change before your eyes and the end product should look like the above picture.

Cut out the image, and round each of the corners.

Then take your Word Window Punch and Love Me Paper Pad and punch out the above image.

I punched out one of the hearts with the Stampin' Up! 3 heart punch from the Dark red textured cardstock.

Now cut the XOXO paper about an 1" bigger than the image. And then layer the creme cardstock underneath the XOXO paper cut it 1/4 bigger than the XOXO paper.

Now adhere the layers together..

This is what the base should look like now.

Put square dimensionals on the back of the Kraft cardstock and adhere it to the XOXO paper somewhere in the middle, the put the square dimensionals on the punch saying, and heart.

  3. Love that XOXO's paper and that heart stamp, never seen either of those before!

    1. I know right? The XOXO paper is from My Minds Eye LOVE ME 6x6 paper pad. I believe Archivers is still selling this item. The heart stamp is from inkadinkado and I bought it at Joann Fabrics!
