Card #17 –  Valentine’s Card #2

I started by assembling all my supplies.

Card 17 Supply LayoutAs I mentioned in the first Valentine’s card that I made, I’ll be making a few of these during this series.

This particular card required the least amount of supplies of any card I’ve made so far.  I like cards that look like you spent hours, yet, in reality, it was only a few minutes.

And this will probably be the shortest blog post of this series because the card required so few steps.


I used rose red cardstock (4 1/4″ X 11 1/2″) for my base and white cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″) for the front panel.

Step 2:  I found some scrap white cardstock and laid down 1 1/2″ strips of washi tape to form the flags of the banner.  I cut out the strips of washi tape and notched the ends.
Step 3:  Using foam adhesive I stuck the banners on the card.

Step 4:  I attached the string using double sided tape on the back of the panel.

Step 6:  I punched mini hearts out of the same rose red cardstock and glued them to the card front.

Step 7:  I applied Glossy Accents Dimensional adhesive to the hearts and sprinkled them with glitter.

Voila! Done!

Here is the finished card.
