Card #13 –  Valentine card

I started by assembling all my supplies.

Card 13 Supply LayoutI’ll probably be making several Valentine cards in this card series.  I used a Simon Says Stamp set called “Sending Happy Thoughts“.





I used white cardstock (5 1/2″ X 8 1W/2”) for my base and patterned cardstock for the inside of the envelope.

Assembling the envelopeI started by using Versamark ink to stamp the envelope image twice.  Because I wanted it to appear as if the envelope was open, I needed to cut two separate pieces.  I covered the images with black embossing powder, melted them with the heat gun and cut them out.  I kept one envelope intact and for the other one I cut out the top flap.  I also stamped the image with regular black ink on the backside of the patterned paper.  After all the pieces were cut out I glued them together and then adhered them to the white cardstock base.

Card 13 2Once I had the envelope placed, I used the red ink to stamp the “Sending” sentiment.  I finished the sentiment by stamping, in black ink, the words, “Lots of Love”.

Card 13 3Now the work began on this card.  I punched out assorted hearts in coordinating colors with my Martha Stewart Hearts punch.  Then using my Tombow Mono Multi Adhesive, I attached them semi-randomly as if they were flying out of the envelope.

I finished the card by painting a few of the hearts with my Wink of Stella glitter brush and attaching a few sparkly embellishments.

Here is the finished card.
