I'm getting ready for Valentine's Day!!!
Isn't this just soooo cute? This card is super easy and fun to make. Here is how I made mine.
Cut TWO double sided pieces of pattened paper 5 - 1/2 inches by 8 - 1/2 inches.
Fold one paper in half like a traditional card.
Fold the other paper into a W shape.
I used a scalloped heart Nestability and ran it through my Sizzix to cut out my heart.
Because the paper was folded, the heart has a big ugly fold right down the middle:(.
So I embossed that fold right out!
Love how pretty this looks!!! So glad that ugly fold was there to inspire me on;).
This card ties closed so run some adhesive down the side of your card and be sure to place a piece of ribbon on the adhesive before attaching the die cut piece of the card. Be sure to keep your adhesive in the first inch and a half or so of your card.
Stick down one side at a time.
Voila! Don't you love the way my card keeps changing colors? Flash off, flash on.
I used the scrap heart that I embossed to decorate the front of my card. I sanded it lightly and later added some gold paint.
I stamped a sentiment, decorated the corners and placed it right under the heart.
Here is the gold paint. I ran some along the edges of the card and just a bit over the sanded parts of the embossed heart.
Back on the inside, I used some more of the paper scraps to run XO strips down each side of the inside of the card. I also made a hanging heart with some of the smaller scalloped heart Nestabilities and a bit of floss. It is just taped up the back of the card with a piece of coordinating paper covering the floss tail ;).
The finished card.
