Soon enough, it’ll be Valentine’s Day, and although my husband and I no longer really go overboard on this holiday, I still think it’s a fun time to send cards to all of the kids in my family because they get a kick out of it. I turned to the gorgeous Astrobright cardstocks for this cute valentine that I’m planning to send my nephew.
Start by trimming a piece of Re-Entry Red cardstock to 4″ x 5.25″. Add a fun heart confetti pattern to the panel with a 3D embossing folder (misting the cardstock lightly with water first can help prevent cracking when using 3D embossing folders).
To bring out all of that multi-layered dimension, I then lightly applied white ink over top of the entire embossed panel using a foam blending tool.
Die-cut a small circle out of Stardust White cardstock, emboss it using the same 3D folder, and lightly apply pink ink over the die-cut for a similar look.
Create mat layers for the circle and background panel using Eclipse Black cardstock and adhere them together with tape runner. Add the background panel to a top-folding A2-sized card base made from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock.
Stamp a cute image onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock, color it with Copic Markers, and die cut it or fussy-cut it out with scissors.
Stamp a punny sentiment onto a strip of Eclipse Black cardstock in Versamark ink, add white embossing powder, and melt it with a heat tool.
Adhere the sentiment strip to the back of the circle panel and pop the whole thing up on top of the card using foam adhesive. Add the elephant image in the center of the circle using more foam adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed this cute Valentine’s Day card, and thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to visit the CutCardstock store to purchase any of the supplies showcased today, and if you liked this project, please leave a comment below!
