Another Love Notes: Valentine’s Day Card

Here we go again with the Love Notes Framelits I’m loving them for all kinds of embellishments. The scallop heart border looks so complicated, but of course it’s simple to make with the Love Notes Framelits and the BIG Shot!

🎀 A Quick 5-Step “How To”:

  1. Cut your card base from Whisper White at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and score it at 4-1/4″. Cut another piece at 5″ x 2-3/4″. Cut a 5-1/4″ x 3″ piece of Real Red.
  2. Place the scallop edge die from the “Love Notes” Framelits, along the right edge of the card base and cut along the edge.
  3. Using the “Sending Love” designer series paper, cut out three of the largest hearts mixing up the patterns.
  4. Stamp “happy valentine’s day” from the Good Greetings stamp set in Basic Black Ink.
  5. Adhere the layers as shown. Stack the hearts and with All-Purpose Glue affix them to the top layer.

And, there you have it; a quick 5-step card for you to make.

Happy Card-Making!

  1. Adhere the medium floral cut outs to the center of the medallion with Multi-Purpose Glue taking care that they are spaced equally around. This is done easily by lining the floral cut outs up with points of the medallion.
  2. Carefully gkue the medallion piece on to the heart,
  3. Adhere and layer the card as shown in the photo.
  4. Add a Basic Rhinestone to the center of the medallion and Basic Pearls on every other scallop along the heart’s edge.

See what you can do to capture the “Scherenchnitte” look by using different dies. Experiment with different color card stocks and designer series papers. Lots can be accomplish and createde with just a little imagination.

Thanks ever so much for your visit.
